In Armored Core, they are people who love banning parts/weapons in tournaments and online games, so their opponents will fight to suit their style.
OMG! I keep getting slaughtered by your E2 core and your MG Arms! Take it off!
Lazy soccer moms who do not have time to take care of their kids, so everything they cannot deal with is objectionable. They usually ask the government to ban things that affect their children like violent movies and video games, "the right to bear arms", and satire websites(like Maddox's).
I'm too lazy to teach my children what's right and wrong, so I'll just have the government ban violent movies so I won't have to worry about my kids.
