* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: On [[http://www.cracked.com/article_21538_5-things-i-learned-as-sex-slave-in-modern-america.html/ this article]], they posted a {{trigger}} warning due to the disturbing material contained in the arcticle (the article was written after Cracked interviewed a woman who was a child sex slave and beaten severely for most of her childhood). They stated that they don't usually put warnings on their articles as a policy, but decided to make an exception in that case thanks to the exceptionally triggering subject matter.

* SoCoolItsAwesome: So far, the reaction to Insider Perspective articles, mixing fascinating stories with the odd joke to help the more depressing ones go down easier.

** '''Creator/{{Seanbaby}}'''. A look at the comments on his [[ScheduleSlip increasingly-rare]] articles shows that quite a few readers show up just to read his work.



*** By 2016, readers noted a sharp increase in political articles, all of them with a strong progressive bent that comes across as {{Anvilicious}}, even to those who agree with much of the content. Even articles on pop culture haven't been free of politics: Many writers will add in a jab toward [[AcceptableTargets gun owners, evangelical Christians, or social conservatives]] while [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructing]] Hogwarts or the Marvel universe. Not helping matters was the 2016 US presidential election; two days after the results were in, ''every single article'' ran that day was blatantly political. For those who go to Cracked for a distraction from political issues, this did not bode well.

Added DiffLines:

*** From the same article, it also says that the Avengers won't appear in individual movies, and that we'll never get a Deadpool movie. Come 2016, we get ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', a Captain America movie with not one but ''two'' teams of Avengers, and [[Film/Deadpool2016 the Deadpool movie]], which became a massive success (bigger than any of the X-Men films). Sadly, they're probably right about never being a Black Widow movie or an X-Men/Avengers crossover.

* SnarkBait: Many of the more recent political articles have fallen into this, ''especially'' the ones that try to point out how your favorite works are racist or sexist or homophobic.

* FreudWasRight: We can't count how many dick jokes there are, and the writers [[SelfDeprecation regularly mock themselves]] for going for a BottomOfTheBarrelJoke.

Added DiffLines:

* DontShootTheMessage: Some readers argue that Cracked's increasingly large number of [[SoapboxSadie preachy, poorly researched]] articles do more harm than good to the causes they purport to help. That anyone who brings this up in the comments will be angrily shouted down almost immediately doesn't help matters.

* SubcultureOfTheWeek: They've been accused of writing articles like this, most infamously when it comes to [[{{Otaku}} anime fans]] and [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Bronies]]. In fact, if you look at the Dethroning Moments subpage, you'll quickly see a pattern.
