Ja, we are better described as a coldbed of activism.

This is a systematic error in the way the British and Australians say
things.  Since the adjective bloody is often used as an adverb, it would be
more proper to differentiate it from the adjective form.  At the same time,
move the preposition from the end of the sentence.  Then you have

"I should bloodly tear down my servers."

Or it might be "...bloodily tear down..."

In the states we have a similar problem wherein the term fucking is misused
as an adverb, when it would be more proper to use the term fuckingly.
However I seldom hear of anyone expressing a desire to fuckingly tear down
