I think it's myopic and frankly immature to do so, but it's also inarguably the case that certain people are doing it and treating the King's Landing smallfolk as a singular mass.

Granted, on my end it's one very loud voice (the one in that discussion, in fact) but I've seen it a bit elsewhere too.

Really? Oh, jeeze, yikes. Okay. I didn't know that. Is it a lot that you've seen elsewhere on the internet that they're justifying genocide for the reasons cited in the current Unintentionally Unsympathetic example on the YMMV page?

Not in so many words, it's generally "eh, fuck 'em, not like they were doing anything good anyway."

The entry as-written definitely goes waaaaaaaay overboard... it's not saying "people feel this way," it's more saying "people feel this way... and they're right!" It's not documenting an opinion, it's supporting an argument.

In that case, should it still be on the page or modified? Or should more responses be gathered?
