* '''The {{Fantendo}} Law''': The larger a website, especially a wiki, grows, especially a wiki that allows non-registered users to edit, the higher the likelihood is that it will be filled with boring, uninspired list articles.

** Any forum not specifically aimed at an intelligent audience will inevitably attract some loud-mouthed, poorly-informed idiots who make [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Cirno]] look smart. Any forum which ''is'' specifically aimed at an intelligent audience will inevitably attract some arrogant, pretentious, and egotistical snobs who make [[TheBigBangTheory Sheldon Cooper]] seem downright humble.
