It descended into a cesspit of trolling and abusive comments, and despite the management giving considerable warning it refused to behave.

So it was killed, it's head chopped off, a stake hammered through it's rotten black heart, and left out in the sunlight to dry up and blow away like dust.

I doubt it will return from this.

As a result, there is no non-KSS location on the site; no place to post a rude joke; no room for the f-word.
