If you take that same statement and blow it out of proportion in a glorified wall of text and engage/target other fans of the show with it, and also repeat it episode after episode, then that would probably be better expressed in it's own (separate) topic. And if by chance it's not worthy of it's own topic, then obviously it's a not worthy of disrupting the thread either and hence should be removed. Or at least that would be the simple logic for this particular case, IMO...

I wrote the petition in a general form; not necesarly my own views. Everyone is free to interpret the small details as they wish. I believe the general idea of it would be understood the same by everyone though.

This has been a reucurring problem is not simply directed at the case/quote there.
Disrepectfull to fans is not an good argument, because in every show there are haters. In a way you have to respect both sides, the haters and the fans. Or else you are too narrowminded for criticism.
It does not hurt to read some negative opinions about a serie or episode.

Like in my case, some people called Mashiro iro Symphony a bad romance because they didn't like the pairing (or in their case unexpected pairing) at the end. But that wouldn't bother me from enjoying the serie as a fan at all.
