This is a reminder for everybody to please flag spite battles when they see them. I consistently see comments like '_____ wins effortlessly' or '_____ curbstomps' or 'this is spite, _____ wins'. If you believe this to be true (and are not just saying it to bait or elicit a response), then please please please flag it. The mods (contrary to what we'd have you believe) are not omniscient. We can't see everything that goes on and while some of us are regulars in the battle forum, that does not mean that we're taking a look at every topic that gets made in here.
If you see something that is so unbalanced that there's no opportunity for a reasonable debate, then please flag it. Don't (just) post about it being a spite thread or about how somebody curbstomps. Help us get other, better battles, more attention by letting us know that these threads should be locked due to being unfair fights. Your flag button is right next to the reply/quote options, don't hesitate to use it.
For the entire set of rules on flagging, please see Static Shock's post here.
