I wouldn't say it's a witch hunt, more of a call to good sense and sportsmanship. Cutting out the rot in the ranks, if you like. Spikers are just bad losers who rely on actions like this to pretend they had an impact on the real game, to players actually able to compete they will only ever be a nuisance, hence the appeal for a common response.
If it has no impact on the real game why bother complaining in the forum? I don't deny the impact on the game hence why on request from BM I didn't spike for couple months.
