This "revolution" is meaningless. You will not get noticed, you will change nothing. If you were ever to take control of this site it would cease to exist within about a week. To me this looks like a joke no one is willing to admit to. Accept the rules and move on, if you don't like the rules that much then leave most of the people making this a problem would be probably better off deactivating their accounts anyway.
Turn around, go back.

That seems to me like one of those arguments where a patriot shows up on Fox News and says something like, "If you don't like our rules of gun ownership, leave to Canada" and thinks he has offered a great solution.

I'm not a supporter of that revolution per se, but neither do I like the current rules. That being said, I'm staying here, regardless. I can get myself to follow such rules, but to me that doesn't mean I should personally support them. Change comes from within and so I'm hoping that we would allow "personal attacks" at some point, but if that doesn't happen, there are loads of subtle ways to personally insult others.

Sounds like an amicable solution to me
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

They might as well give up because it is kind of like a chinese finger trap; The more you try to resist, the more resistance you feel going against you pulling away. Though if you just embrace it, the chinese finger trap will lose it's grip on you.
