WallsOfText are overgrown shrubs to prune into topiary. {{Thread Mode}} is an unpleasant vine that infests example sections. {{Natter}} is a parasitic moss that grows on other statements, and bits of (perceived) {{Fancruft}} are stinkweeds that kill bees and eat birds. WordCruft is AlienKudzu. The Hedge Trimmer seeks and destroys all of them.

A lot of polite wiki authors are uncomfortable with outright deleting fragments or directly re-writing the work of others to reflect concise, impartial observation. Instead of removing the incorrect information or biased statements, or turning a one word example into a complete comprehensible sentence, they add their own thoughts, elaborations, and counterpoints to the existing text. Over time, this results in sprawling examples and trope descriptions full of [[WikiSchizophrenia contradictions]] and {{weasel words}} and [[ThreadMode long meandering discussions]] spanning multiple bullet points. These are hard to read and while well intentioned, this behavior can create redundant and confusing tangles of PurpleProse and NonSequitur. But to many, it would be rude to do anything to actually fix the problem, since it would require deleting so much that others have written.
