The demons of negativity, jealousy, and whining have overrun the controls. The experience is sort of like squirrels in the attic except rabid and able to reproduce by the minute. These demons are also surprisingly agile and long-lived. They particularly love nibbling on generosity of spirit and better nature.
I am attempting to starve them out with silence. With any luck, the foundations can be saved and this space can be happily inhabited again.
Full eradication, of course, is unlikely. Non-destructive levels is the goal.
