+17 (yeas:17 nays:0) Dirty Old Woman: We REALLY don't need to know. Also kind of flame bait material.
[Added 10th Mar '14 at 06:28:18 PM]
+14 (yeas:15 nays:1) +13 (yeas:15 nays:2) Demonic Spiders: This is a page about Video Game enemies, which (obviously) don't exist in real life, and is being misused, with the real life section merely being a list of dangerous things. [Added 7th Mar '14 at 08:20:17 PM]
+13 (yeas:15 nays:2) Goddamned Bats: Video Game and fictional trope, impossible in Real Life. Complaining, natter, thread mode, and shoehorning. [Added 10th Mar '14 at 05:57:41 PM]
+12 (yeas:15 nays:3) +12 (yeas:14 nays:2) Timey-Wimey Ball: Impossible in real life. Shoehorned examples. [Added 11th Mar '14 at 07:59:37 PM]
+11 (yeas:13 nays:2) +11 (yeas:15 nays:4) World of Badass: Examples seem terribly shoehorned. It lists thing like samurai, a social class, Sparta, where the badasses were an elite class, and animals, which are a category of life-form. Also near-impossible in Real Life. [Added 8th Mar '14 at 06:28:10 PM]
+11 (yeas:15 nays:4) +11 (yeas:14 nays:3) That One Player: Should only have In-Universe examples. "This game has some very skilled players" is too subjective. [Added 11th Mar '14 at 10:00:23 AM]
+11 (yeas:14 nays:3) Alpha Bitch: The trope describes an inherently horrible person. It's also not nice to call real life people bitches any more than Jerkasses or villains. [Added 11th Mar '14 at 07:55:54 PM]
+10 (yeas:13 nays:3) Jerk Jock: The trope describes an inherently horrible person. It's also not nice to call real life Jerkasses or villains. Related to Alpha Bitch. [Added 13th Mar '14 at 12:35:01 AM]
+8 (yeas:11 nays:3) +8 (yeas:9 nays:1) Dark Mistress: A villain trope. [Added 17th Mar '14 at 10:57:17 AM]
-3 (yeas:0 nays:3)
