It's one guy tossing out insults on his blog. A blog that gets no comments whatsoever. A blog where his other posts are about trolling an IRC channel (as a "social experiment") and saying that The Lord of the Rings sucks because it is "gay" and "Jew-pardoning". I don't think this counts as a "split".
