Working Title: Example Sectionectomy: From YKTTW

This looks like the worst idea ever.
"Hey, we have an entire site based around tropes and their examples! Let's remove all the examples on any page that does well!"
How can that be, in any way, useful?

Luc: It's usually used in cases where the example section is too flamebaity, too troublesome, too subjective, or just too numerous to list. In other words, it's useful when the Rule of Cautious Editing Judgement says so.

Crowley: Thing is, Example Sectionectomy doesn't happen to "any page that does well". This usually happens to pages which have so deeply degenerated into Thread Mode (usually Complaining About Shows You Don't Like) that it's incomprehensible.
