Exactly 4 years after their initial retirement on May 4 2010 however, the creator posted in a suggestion thread where someone suggested Frilled Dragons to return stating that she actually ''wants'' to bring them back (and mentioned something along the lines of "being immature at the time they retired"), and on May 21 2016 they finally returned (along with the other retired breed), complete with their original descriptions and with a sprite for the males. In other words, the creator [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone regretted having them retired in the first place]], and now everyone can get Frilled Dragons once more.

* The fandom of ''Website/DragonCave'' is known for being overly prone to some types of fans, but only once has it really become this. The Frilled dragon was a very nice, but exceptionally common breed. The combination of this and its description being the same as other, more valuable breeds caused a massive backlash, to the point of outright insulting its sprite and artist. At first, the creator tried to brainstorm ways to make it more appealing, but eventually she got so sick of the thing that she straight out discontinued the breed. Now ''nobody'', even the many players who love them, can get more.

* After a toddler was killed by an alligator at Walt Disney World Resort, the Jungle Cruise skippers can no longer say the meme-tastic line "Watch your children, or the crocodiles will!", and Disney may also introduce other sweeping changes to certain attractions and introduce new signs warning visitors of alligators.

* This may be the reason why Website/GoAnimate shifted their focus towards more business-oriented ventures with their animation program: while the website had been made with anyone's usage in mind, when many of the videos made were of "baby show" characters like WesternAnimation/{{Caillou}} [[YouAreGrounded getting grounded]] and sometimes assaulted, you tend to be looked at as the laughingstock of the Internet community.

* Fanfiction writer Worldmaker famously has a section on his fanfiction.net profile entitled "Things I Hate to Read in Harry Potter Fan Fiction", that includes such things as an explanation why hate for the Weasley family is idiotic and why the DracoInLeatherPants trope is a bad thing. A few months after he added that section, he added a section entitled "Fun With Morons", in which he publicly responded to the hate mail he received because of the "Things I Hate to Read" list. His response to one young woman, who had said in her hate mail, "No wonder your wife or whatever left you", is [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome particularly epic]]:

* ShipToShipCombat, along with ExecutiveMeddling (in several areas), is what convinced ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' comic writer Ian Flynn to end any ideas of Sonic and Sally being a couple when the comic was rebooted following Ken Penders's court case with Archie. Flynn just couldn't take the shipper comments anymore. Penders becoming the anti-Christ in the fandom's eyes led to them throwing multiple insults his way, which also didn't go over well with Flynn since he felt it made everyone look bad; he banned any mention of the man on threats of being kicked off Flynn's forum if you abuse it. This also killed a thread on his board talking about the ''Lara-Su Chronicles'' after people went into a panic over a number of tweets over the man leading them to think he was trying to outright kill the ''Sonic'' comic. [[Creator/KenPenders Pender's page on TV Tropes]] is locked because of this.

* Creator/TiteKubo runs a really funny Website/{{Twitter}} account whereupon he confirms the image the ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' fandom has of [[TrollingCreator his real life self]]. [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil Then someone had the bright idea to blithely congratulate him on chapter 400 before it was even released in Japan]]. Ultimately, in September 2015, Kubo suddenly left Twitter, his final message proclaiming, "[Notice] Tomorrow night, after about 24 hours I will delete my Twitter account. Until that time, please direct message me." It turns out that someone on Twitter had been passing photos across the Internet proclaiming to be that of Kubo with ''Weekly Shounen Jump'' proclaiming that these were fake and that they would pursue legal actions if this was being done maliciously.

* Creator/AkiraIshida (who voiced Xeloss in ''[[Anime/{{Slayers}} Slayers Next]]'', Kaworu Nagisa in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', and many other roles) stopped recording character image songs, or publicly singing in general, after one too many fan complaints about his singing voice.

* Todd Kauffman, character designer/director for ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' and creator of WesternAnimation/{{Sidekick}}, had a chatbox on his blog which he used to answer questions for his fanbase. Then, despite--or perhaps [[TemptingFate because of]]--his warnings not to imitate him or else he would delete the chatbox, a huge ginormous number of impostors went on all at once one day in May 2011. The chatbox was deleted soon after, but he started a new one in early June.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' creator Creator/JohnKricfalusi used to host regular AIM chats with the fandom, and post Q&A sessions on certain Ren and Stimpy message boards. Some chats and question sessions went well, at least at first. However, after a large amount of "heckling" and being drowned out with constant clamoring requests of "Do you like this show? What do you think of this show? What's your opinion on anime?", etc. (Mostly done for the purpose of troll-baiting his opinionated statements against animated shows he doesn't like) and even moderation not helping matters of people getting somewhat out of hand, he dropped this method of communication altogether. However, he later would created his own self-moderated blog to talk about various subjects and drawing and animated character theories, and does participate in comment discussions there. But he has lessened considerably himself from making as many overt statements about cartoons he does not like, quite as much, focusing more of his attention on simply praising the inspirations he does admire.
* Creator/GregWeisman, creator of ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', ran a blog called "[[http://s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/ Ask Greg]]" for years with little to no incident. Fan could ask questions about the kinds of details that never make it into shows (like "What are Gargoyle marriage customs like?"). When he began work on ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', the blog was positively deluged by questions blatantly asking for spoilers from upcoming stories, questioners being incredibly rude or demanding, masking criticisms or flames as questions, duplicate questions etc. This led to a temporary closing of the question form and new rules on what could be asked. Things calmed down, but [[ShortRunInPeru the March 2012 airing of episodes in Turkey before the U.S.]] has led to an influx of questions basically asking for summaries of the dialogue in those episodes, so only time will tell how long Ask Greg will remain open. On April 2012, Weisman openly stated he was [[http://s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?rid=946 on the verge]] of shutting the blog down completely, and on July 2013 the website stopped accepting new questions. However, the site began accepting questions again in 2014.
