    the logic is, that by saying "already" instead of "now" you present yourself as part of an existing trend.

    For the reader "ban perfection now!" could mean that this is the first time someone requests to ban perfection.


    When you read "ban perfection already!" it seems logical to assume, that this request is a follow up to previous requests that were unacted upon.

    Stating you would like to se a person banned is fine, but die? That's a little much.

    WTF. Round him up and bring him to the forum square.
