+21 (yeas:21 nays:0) Greedy Jew: Ethnic stereotype. [Added 10th Dec '13 at 03:12:57 PM]
+13 (yeas:13 nays:0) Evil Old Folks: Calling people evil [Added 9th Dec '13 at 08:11:22 PM]
+13 (yeas:14 nays:1) Asian Rudeness: Calling real people rude. [Added 14th Dec '13 at 10:30:25 AM]
+12 (yeas:14 nays:2) Grim Up North: There are no Dark Lords, Undeads, hordes of evil etc in Real Life. Neither North, South, or anywhere in between. [Added 9th Dec '13 at 10:55:41 AM]
+12 (yeas:15 nays:3) Good Parents: Too subjective. It will only lead to endless debates on which parents are good and which parents are not. Plus, examples will be too common. [Added 1 Jan'14 at 6:45:50 PM]
+11 (yeas:11 nays:0) In the Future, Humans Will Be One Race: Future trope, real life examples are impossible. Examples can only be shoehorned in. Much of what is there can be moved under Analysis. [Added 18th Dec '13 at 03:26:10 AM]
+11 (yeas:12 nays:1) +10 (yeas:19 nays:9) What You Are in the Dark: By discussing who "fails" and "passes" this morality test, we are passing judgement on real life people's actions, which isn't what this wiki is about. [Added 14th Dec '13 at 11:22:53 AM]
+10 (yeas:12 nays:2) +10 (yeas:11 nays:1) +9 (yeas:12 nays:3) Those Wacky Nazis: Stereotyping real people as Nazis, and when they actually are real Nazis, we don't need a listing of them on the site. [Added 14th Dec '13 at 10:33:32 AM]
+9 (yeas:10 nays:1) +9 (yeas:10 nays:1) Child Eater - Villain Trope. [Added 6th Jan '14 at 06:48:20 PM]
+7 (yeas:11 nays:4) +7 (yeas:12 nays:5) All Germans Are Nazis: Stereotyping real people as Nazis, and when they actually are real Nazis, we don't need a listing of them on the site. [Added 14th Dec '13 at 10:32:54 AM]
+7 (yeas:10 nays:3) Wacky Americans Have Wacky Names: Mocking actual people's names, and we're not in the business of deciding if real people are "Wacky". [ Added 28th Dec '13 at 08:45:33 AM]
+7 (yeas:9 nays:2) Cessation of Existence: Already devoid of real life examples and includes a hidden disclaimer forbidding them. [Added 30th Dec '13 at 05:55:41 PM]
+7 (yeas:10 nays:3) Dumbass Teenage Son: This wiki wasn't a place to call a teenage boy jerkasses. [Added 7th Jan '14 at 09:09:14 AM]
+6 (yeas:8 nays:2) Southern-Fried Private: The one example is misuse, and the trope relies on some rather unflattering stereotypes that should not be applied to real people. [Added 28th Dec '13 at 08:44:31 AM]
+6 (yeas:10 nays:4) Continue RL ban in Permanent Elected Official: Contradictory description on NRLEP page. (Positive: fix description; negative: remove ban) [Added 29th Dec '13 at 11:09:15 AM]
+5 (yeas:9 nays:4) Marry Them All: Narrative device, natter target [Added 7th Jan '14 at 06:43:20 PM]
+4 (yeas:9 nays:5) Mafia Princess: Prone to misuse and we don't need to be listing real people based on being related to criminals. [Added 28th Dec '13 at 08:46:59 AM]
+2 (yeas:4 nays:2)
Please do NOT add new options to this crowner so that we can get it closed and hook a fresh one. It's far too long already, and the new entries get lost at the bottom under all the ones that have already been decided.
