I remember seeing a story on the news once. There were these two kids at the zoo and one of them had a slingshot he snuck in. He and his friend thought it was funny to try and torture a tiger by shooting steel shot at it, thinking that they were safe from any retaliation because of the boundaries that kept the tiger confined in its display area. The tiger was simply enjoying lounging his day away in the sun and not bothering anyone. But those two kids kept torturing it, relishing in their ability to dominate the powerful creature in the enclosure below. They probably laughed as the tiger became more and more enraged with what they were putting him through. They didn't expect the tiger would become so enraged that it would leap what was thought to be an impossible distance to cover the large deep pit and the high wall that separated it from the zoo patrons. But it did. Then it mauled and killed the kid that had been shooting him with the slingshot. Afterwards, the tiger simply laid down and and didn't bother anyone else. Still, everyone was horrified at the tiger. Everyone tried to blame the tiger for protecting himself. Everyone tried to make the kid out to be the victim, when in fact it was the tiger and the kid was the tormentor. Had that kid left the tiger alone instead of trying to exercise his power over it, the kid wouldn't have died. Don't blame the tiger and don't be the kid, unless you are fully prepared and willing to get mauled.
See, people, as a species, tend to practice hypocrisy. I think it's in our genes. Not everyone, mind you, but a large enough portion that it is common enough place. We've all heard that the things you hate most in others are usually your own biggest faults. People try to remove the speck from another's eye while ignoring the log in there's. They shoot the tiger and cry foul when the tiger returns the torment 10 fold. It's ok for them to torment the tiger but not for the tiger to torment back.
That's all I have to say about drama, or people running multiple toons and/or multiple teams, etc. Everything's fine till it gets turned on you by another. Then all of a sudden it's a big deal and some kind of foul. Meh.
