The amount of people using Apu and Pepe "properly" are far, far outweighed by the faggots spamming him for a reaction. It's why moot went through with GR15 instead of banning every problem horsefucker, because at the end of the day the only reason the meme was being used was to annoy people most of the time and the dozen people that liked /mlp/ unironically weren't worth putting up with a sewer full of shitposters. Pepe has reached the same threshold and beyond yet moot left before he could deal the verdict. Moot left from /qa/ and fittingly they took his pedistal and turned it into a designated shitting street.
Those "nice frogposters" are just accessories and an excuse used by their shitposter bretheren to justify their existance. If anything, they should be purged as well simply for having shitty tastes that match /R/eddit's.
