And you'd be wrong. The people on this site ( and others ) who share the same position exist.
Really, you're now claiming to speak for the known universe

Not at all. I would never suggest might is right or the majority view is always best etc. It is just I have never come across those sort of reasons before.
And lets be clear, I am not saying many or even most here don't think Nero "deserved" everything he got. That's understandable in a way. I was only remarking on the reasons

Are you aware of anyone who shares those particular criteria?
BTW "The known universe", as an SF reference, was
tongue in cheek. I should have made that clearer.
