Pulling the entry to discussion to defuse the edit war. Please come to the discussion page rather than edit warring it back in or back out.

I am re-adding Hand Wave; I'm sorry but please hear me out: shrugging off visible plot holes is an example of lazy writing. It even says on the page that many acclaimed works have used these tropes successfuly; if that's the case, this whole page of tropes shouldn't exist. A Hand Wave is bad writing, there's no arguing that. If you want to delete it again, feel free, I just wanted to make my case. Sorry.

We discuss this before (see history), "Hand Wave is not a case of Bad Writing; it can be used to paper over a detail that would take too long to explain properly. For example, most of the audience doesn't really care how the FTL drive works, so explaining it takes up time that could be used for actual plot." Add it to Sturgeons Tropes, if you want to.

Why should a writer stick to ONE point of view? The trope page even points out why it can be useful.
