The Great Troll War was a period of the forum history during which flame wars were exceedingly common. This provoked the first great exodus of the forums. Many notable users left or were banned; a small subset of people left to form the small forum Daemonaic Mist, yearning for the Golden Age of the forums. Two of the great antagonists were Ness and Peatrical Systems, who were quickly banned.


The causes of the Great Troll War can be traced to general eDrama, resulting from events such as religious debates, fanboyism and fangirlism, and sprite comic drama.
