* Frnmmma25: ''i Go Nuclear'' is this for me because of how the teacher handed out the grades. Freddie's project, which he put an incredible amount of time and money on, is given a bad grade because the hippie teacher thought that it cost too much resources to get the imported worms as composters in the first place, even though once the initial investment is done, you could just breed those worms and be much better down the line. Sam's project, however, is given an A, even though she only thought about it at that second, and her entire project on how we could be more eco-friendly just consisted of "eat plants, and then compost them", which she only came up with because she was eating an orange in class right before she was supposed to give her project. The teacher likes her idea so much, that he gives her an A, even though she didn't even do any planning before the project was due, and was only doing it by the seat of her pants. In Art class, kids are graded by the effort they put into their work, and whether they follow the guidelines because some kids have natural talent and only have to do a half finished sketch to make something look pretty, while another kid may have a mural that he worked days on, but it looks like crap because he has shitty art skills, regardless of how hard he tries. This wasn't like they had to write an essay, and then it could be judged on the technical aspects, this was basically an art project, where everyone who put actual effort and thought into their project had to go on a shitty trip to the woods alone with their hippie teacher, while the kid who did absolutely nothing managed to avoid that! Come on, why wasn't hippie teacher fired!? Who approved of this idiot as a teacher? All in all, this was just an excuse to screw over Freddie and and give the Jerk Ass Jerk Sue Sam rewards for something that she didn't deserve. What the fuck is with the writers?

** {{Troopers/AntMan}}: Well, technically, in "iThink They Kissed", he implied he was actually starting to believe it. Agree with the rest though. "I have to admit, I'm impressed by how fast you were able to walk all the way around to here and change your hair and clothes" Hey, [[SarcasmMode genius]], not only is it impressive, but since she's not TheFlash, it's fucking impossible. Seriously, isn't he supposed to be the smart one?

* Tropers/{{TheFarmboy}}: Personally I found the show [[SoOkayItsAverage so-so]], but I would like to address "iSell Penny Tees." This episode has it where Sam was running an underground sweatshop with a bunch of fourth graders as laborers. Now, she has done plenty of awful things before and after this episode (like beating Freddie with a tennis racket over his opinion on Fred and the former refusing to apologize for the latter's overreaction.) Now, let's compare Sam to someone like Neville. When Neville made a little girl cry, this was treated in-universe as a MoralEventHorizon by ''everybody'' he had come to contact with. Yet when Sam runs this highly illegal business, no one had thought of handing her over to the authorities. Like Carly and Freddie only took half of the children with her, but they didn't shut down the business. And not one of the children had ratted out on Sam during their time before finally leaving her. Sam had always been a complete asshole, but this is a new low for her. The [[LaserGuidedKarma only form of punishment]] Sam had gotten was when the kids had taken the business for themselves.

''Series/{{iCarly}}'' makes its name in ComedicSociopathy, characters being [[{{JerkAss}} Jerkasses]], multiple moments of KickTheDog and GettingCrapPastTheRadar. However, it can only go so far before it begins annoying or offending people for the [[DudeNotFunny wrong]] [[DarthWiki/DethroningMomentOfSuck reason]].

Also, keep in mind that as with all Dan Schneider shows, iCarly runs on ComedicSociopathy (as mentioned), sadomasochistic tendencies and BellisariosMaxim, along with characters being {{Butt Monkey}}s and/or {{Karma Houdini}}s. Thus, while you might have laughed at something that someone else lists here, it might be the other way around, and vice versa. So we obviously won't just up and delete your entry, but you should be prepared to do even more explaining than normal as to what makes it a [=DMoS=].

* Tropers/{{Mack}}: ''iMeet {{Fred}}''. [[DoggedNiceGuy Freddie]] says that he doesn't think {{Fred}}'s videos are very funny. Not bad. Not terrible. Not "Fred should stop", just "not that funny". Fred sees this and tells the world that he's not going to make any more videos because of what Freddie said. Freddie is immediately ostracised by everyone, including everyone at school and his school groups, his family and Sam, while nobody -- not even on the internet -- seems to be relieved that Fred's gone (because, you know, the entire world population just loves Fred so much). Not even Carly stands by him. When the trio go to Fred's house to confront him (in a high tree house), Freddie refuses to take back what he said. Sam then picks up a tennis racquet, takes Freddie into a room off-camera, and proceeds to beat him to a pulp with the racquet, to the point where she breaks it on him. Under threat of more beatings, Freddie finally takes back what he said. At this point, it's revealed that Fred didn't even care about what was said; it was all a ploy to get more viewers. Sam then throws Freddie out of the tree house. The apparent moral of this story? "It's okay to have an opinion, as long as it's not an unpopular one, and beating someone to make them change their views is acceptable".

** starkitty93: I liked the episode up until the last few minutes or so where Carly and her date are mocking the date's sister for being 18 and having no license, I was 18 and licenseless when I saw this episode and that just fueled some hatred in me, the ''Series/Victorious'' episode "Driving Tori Crazy" did something similar with Andre and Beck making fun of Tori for being 16 and licenseless.

** Tropers/{{Luna87}}: The fact that this episode was another [[OnlySaneMan Freddie]] Torture Porn isn't what gets me the most (one of the reasons I'm not a big fan of this show in general is that it uses one of my [[ButtMonkey least favorite tropes]] as a substitute for good character writing). What really annoys me is the purpose of the torture. [[InformedWrongness Everyone in the entire world turns on Freddie just because he says he thinks Fred is not that funny]] [[UnderminedByReality (which is a much more generous criticism than a lot of online personalities tend to get, regardless of their overall popularity)]], and the kid is beaten later until he takes back his opinion. So really, the only point of the Freddie torture was just to make Fred look good (even that gets undermined when Fred (or Lucas Something-Or-Other) admits to just faking his Rage Quit just for publicity. How is the fact that he lied (and let Freddie get beaten within an inch of his life for basically no reason at all) supposed to make him look good? Really, it backfires all-around).

* Tropers/MightyMewtron: While I think the Seddie arc is the worst thing this show ever did, one episode that really bugs me is ''iHire an Idiot.'' Carly and Sam hire a attractive but [[TooDumbToLive painfully stupid]] intern who does damage to the show like spilling lemonade on Freddie's laptop during a broadcast. Personally I find jokes about painful stupidity unfunny, but YMMV. What I don't like is how the girls refuse to fire him because he's really hot, only complying because Freddie hires an equally stupid female intern and they want ''her'' fired. [[spoiler:The female intern, however, turns out to be ObfuscatingStupidity to help Freddie convince the girls to fire the male intern.]] Carly and Sam can be boy crazy at times, but this paints them as superficial hypocrites who sacrifice the quality of their show just to look at hot guys. It almost comes across as sexist.

** Tropers/MightyMewtron: The reason this episode was a DMOS for me as well was because of how it switches the show over to a pathetic shipping arc for several episodes. This wouldn't be so bad on its own, but wait a minute...didn't ''iStart A Fan War'' deliver the message that [[{{Hypocrite}} this show was supposed to be about comedy and not shipping?]]
