seeking in-universe examples for existing trope
Some background here. At TRS, it was suggested that the existing Internet Backdraft page is an excuse for bashing, and that it should be given an example sectionary. I pointed out that this actually happens in-universe, and gave an example, and, after scrounging through all the subpages, found two more. Others in the thread proposed another couple of examples, and I agreed to go to YKTTW to see if the helpful folk there could find more. And here we are. Note that it's not written in stone that this become an in-universe-example-only trope, but it's highly probable. Either way, though, we'd like to have a section of in-universe examples, since that's far more on-mission for the Wiki. This is fairly common in webcomics, I think, but we haven't found any webcomic examples yet. I'm pretty sure that Penny Arcade, for example, has used this trope, but I couldn't remember any specific instances. Executive summary of the trope for those who don't want to bother clicking through: a topic is so controversial on some on-line forum that merely mentioning it can stir up a storm of controversy and flaming. courtesy link to the Repair Shop discussion.
