Added DiffLines:

* PermanentlyMissableContent was originally named "Lost Forever". It was renamed for clarity because people kept confusing it for MissingEpisode and KeepCirculatingTheTapes, and it was constantly misused to describe anything that has been, well, lost forever.

* NightmareFuelStationAttendant used to be "Nightmare Dispenser", and before that it was... NightmareFuelStationAttendant. The first change happened after 1. someone tried to YKTTW a "High Octane Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant" trope (which basically amounted to "NFSA, ''[[Administrivia/TheSameButMore but scarier!]]''") and 2. someone else pointed out that unlike NightmareFuel, NightmareFuelStationAttendant is ''not'' a subjective trope. So divorcing the two only made sense (?). Later it was reverted back.

* NoExceptYes was originally named "This Is Pest Control" after a ''Series/DoctorWho'' quote. Renamed because it made no sense to anyone outside the fandom.

* PaedoHunt was formerly "All Pedophiles are Child Molesters". Changed after it was discovered by actual pedophiles, who tried to use the page to defend themselves, fighting the moderators all the way.



* PowerupMount was formerly "The Yoshi". Was being shoehorned into ''every'' use of the [[SuperMarioBros Mario]] character even when he wasn't a mount, and had a low inbound count.

* PunctuatedForEmphasis was renamed from "This! IS! SPARTA!" because the old name is a widespread meme that was prone to [[PotholeMagnet pothole abuse]]. (Also, it never showed up properly since it was a custom title on a ptitled page.)

* MummiesAtTheDinnerTable started life as "Last Dance with Mary Jane", then was changed to Norma Bates to to make it clear that it covered more than necrophilia, then was changed again when it was pointed out that "Norma Bates" was misleading to people who were familiar with ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', opaque to people who weren't, and was a spoiler, to boot.
