Most forum wars usually either cause a mass exodus of people from said site, or cause the site to simply just disintigrate into nothing.
However, every so often, warring cliques actually manage to come to terms with each other and make up a sort of "peace treaty", that is to say, if both groups abide by certain conditions, then there won't be any more flame wars, trolling, etc between them.
Most recently, a wrestling forum I semi-frequent had one of these occur. A group of forumers banded together to basically make the mods and admin's lives hell (As they felt the admins and mods were banning people based on playing favorites and what not.)
Basically, it was These forumers (now somewhat trolls) Vs The Admins/Mods/Admin and Mod followers for about a year and a half of non stop trolling, flame baiting, banning and unbannings until towards the beginning of summer, cooler heads finally prevailed, and they made a "Peace treaty thread" Basically, the admins and mods had to agree not to ban people just because they didn't like them and what not, while, at the same time, the Trollers had to pledge to actually behave and not flame bait, harrass newbies, etc.

Seems to me that this is the result of a successful Revolution...
A revolution in which the Rebel Leader wanted change, rather then a total split. _________________ Every person alive lives in their own personal alternate reality.
Good luck trying to get other people into yours.
