* Similarly, some fans of Creator/JRRTolkien are grumpy about spelling his surname "Tolkein" or pronouncing it [[NoPronuncationGuide "Tol-kin", "Tol-kyen" or "Tolky-yen"]] rather than "Tol-Keen". And even spelling "Middle-earth" as "Middle-Earth" in extreme cases.

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', BigBad Xykon has to deal not just with random members of the community, but even [[NoFourthWall characters in the comic]] spelling his name wrong (with a Z). He can even tell when you misspell it in a ''[[PsmithPsyndrome speech balloon]]''. And he will [[MurderIsTheBestSolution kill you for it]].

** Shipping [[BadassGay Dirk or Kanaya]] with the opposite sex will do this. Partly under the auspices of [[CureYourGays hating queer erasure]] and partly from [[LGBTFanbase gay fans themselves]].

* For the love of [[Wrestling/MickFoley Foley]], if you don't watch wrestling, don't describe Wrestling/JohnCena or Wrestling/HulkHogan as your favorite wrestlers.
** Another good way to get a lot of wrestling fans to respond to you is make the audacious claim that John Cena is the best wrestler ''ever'' (surpassing such icons as Wrestling/ShawnMichaels, Wrestling/TheUndertaker, [[IHaveManyNames Mick Foley/Cactus Jack/Mankind/Dude Love]], [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]] or, God forbid, Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin) or God help you if you ask about who that Owen Hart fellow is....

* [[SturgeonsLaw 90 percent of the time]], you will receive a negative reaction if you say try to defend Wrestling/KellyKelly. Especially if you compare her to Wrestling/TrishStratus.

Added DiffLines:

* While it's okay to say that he's not your favorite commentator (depending on who your "favorite" is), just don't say that you don't like Wrestling/JimRoss.
* As far as managers go, the most sacred of them all are Wrestling/BobbyHeenan and Wrestling/PaulHeyman. Most other classic managers, like Wrestling/FreddieBlassie, Wrestling/CaptainLouAlbano, Wrestling/MrFuji, Wrestling/PaulBearer, and Wrestling/JimmyHart, can also fall into the category.
* Whether or not you are a fan of Wrestling/DoinkTheClown's heel run, ''never'' say that he was a better face than heel. It's actually best you refrain from saying anything positive about his face run.
* Most wrestling fans won't tolerate you saying anything negative about the following wrestlers: Wrestling/ElSanto, Wrestling/BrunoSammartino, Wrestling/JakeRoberts, Wrestling/CurtHennig, Wrestling/RicFlair, Wrestling/RandySavage, Wrestling/RickRude, Wrestling/ChrisJericho, Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin, [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]], Wrestling/EddieGuerrero, Wrestling/TheUndertaker, Wrestling/ShawnMichaels, Wrestling/RoddyPiper, Wrestling/BretHart, Wrestling/{{Edge}}, Wrestling/{{Christian}}, [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]], [[Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli Claudio Castagnoli/Cesaro]], Wrestling/SethRollins, Wrestling/DeanAmbrose, Wrestling/KevinSteen, and virtually any major Puroresu star.
* And try not to talk ''positive'' about these guys: Wrestling/JohnCena, Wrestling/RandyOrton, Wrestling/{{Sheamus}}, Wrestling/RomanReigns, Wrestling/{{Ryback}}, Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio, Wrestling/TheMiz, Wrestling/SantinoMarella, Wrestling/{{Hornswoggle}}, The Great Khali, Mabel, Wrestling/LexLuger, Wrestling/TheBigShow, Wrestling/KevinNash, or Wrestling/ScottSteiner.

** Since the fandom is predominantly Erik/Christine shippers, stating that you ship Raoul/Christine will earn unholy ire. There have been cases of E/C shippers attacking R/C shippers with "The Phantom is a total cinnamon roll," and "Christine is an ungrateful bitch,".

* The term "trap" as a synonym for {{crossdress|er}}ing male characters (e.g. in anime, video games, and original art) is so ingrained in English-speaking geek subcultures that saying you don't like it, especially if you explain the UnfortunateImplications of the term (such as the implication that men who crossdress do so with the intent to deceive), will result in a verbal stomping on for trying to police their speech. Some fans use terms that are seen as less offensive like "femboy" and [[https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=otokonoko&defid=7395346 "otoko no ko"]], but "trap" seems to stick with most fans much to the dismay of detractors.
