What happened to all the intelligent users who used to browse, when Newgrounds used consistently proper grammar, where alts and trolls didn't exist? When we were the most intellectual community on the web? These '10 users have ruined the site.
Says the guy who misspelled the word intelligent on the title of the thread. Now that's irony. Now I've been here for a long time (even longer than my profile page suggests), and I've never viewed this as the most intellectual community on the web. In fact, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it's never been like that.
On the other hand, while there have always been stupid, small minded people polluting the population, the artists and the more intelligent people do create the balance needed to make this a varied community.
Yes, there are more stupid people, more preteens, more alts, and more trolls than ever- but it's still relatively in proportion, because in general there are just plain more people on the site.
Now, if only we could do something about all those complainers....
