** On the [=ScrewAttack=] forums, it's also generally a bad idea to speak positively of ''"[[Franchise/{{Naruto}} Gaara]] vs. [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Toph]]"'' as it is generally agreed that the episode's research was flagrantly poor and the person who lost [[spoiler:which would be Gaara in this case]] would actually come out on top pretty handily. ''"[[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Yang Xiao Long]] vs. [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Tifa Lockhart]]"'' is also something of a sore talking point there, as pretty much all of the forum's regulars expected [[spoiler:Yang to lose horribly]] and went into meltdown when this wasn't shown to be the case. In fact, just mentioning WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} or any of its characters will provoke some hostility eventually - the show is something of [[TheScrappy a Scrappy]] there.

** Don't mistake Canadians for Americans. Besides disrespecting hockey, that's the fastest way to strip away [[CanadaEh Canada's signature friendliness.]]

** And especially don't tell a historian that "The Dark Ages" were universal and not just "the period when Europe was the world's backwater and everyone else got a Golden Age".

* This sometimes happens regarding ComicBook/LexLuthor's name in Franchise/{{Superman}} media, particularly ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]''. A talk show host interviewing Luthor, who happens to be running for President at the time, pronounces it Luther, while in another episode Superman gets it right by forcing the 'thor' part. It's also hard to shake Ned Beatty's unforgettable Brooklynite rendition in ''Film/SupermanTheMovie'', "Mistah Loo-Toah!"

[[TropesAreTools This isn't always bad, though]], at least not concerning examples of CriticalResearchFailure that can lead to an InkStainAdaptation that can tank the reputation of a work.

** Case in point, [[PickACard pick a YouTube video, any YouTube video]] of an Euler's disk with a "you-ler" pronunciation. At least half of the comments will be correcting their pronunciation.



* Unironically mentioning controversial internet singers such as Music/RebeccaBlack or Misha (no, not [[Creator/MishaCollins THAT Misha]]) is sure to cause annoyance.

* This applies to most media, please don't mention something from 2000 or onward and say something like "only 90s kids remember". You will be labeled as an ignorant normie with no taste in popular culture, especially animation and video games.

Slightly averted with stuff from early 2000 as it's pretty easy to forget that something you think came out in the 90's actually came out in January or February of 2000.

* Don't deny genocides and other crimes against humanity -- for example, those committed by the [[UsefulNotes/{{Turkey}} Ottoman Empire]] against the UsefulNotes/{{Armenia}}ns during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, by the Axis powers (like UsefulNotes/NaziGermany and UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan) during UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo, by the [[UsefulNotes/SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn USSR]] under UsefulNotes/JosefStalin, etc. Just don't do it. People will hate you, and they'll be right to hate you. In several countries, denying UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust is outright ''illegal'', and people can be and have been successfully prosecuted for it. On a related matter, don't say that six million people died in the Holocaust unless you are specifically referring to the Jewish death count. If you are talking about the total death count, the correct number is ''twelve million''. This can be a very touchy subject to people who belong to the various non-Jewish groups that ThoseWackyNazis tried to exterminate (like the UsefulNotes/{{Romani}}).

* Saying anything positive about Creator/AndrewLloydWebber at all is guaranteed to get you flamed to death by ''someone''. Conversely, saying anything ''negative'' about Creator/StephenSondheim will produce the same effect, probably from the exact same people.
