Given the [[{{GIFT}} effect that anonymity]] has on some Internet users, the fact that {{Broken Base}}s would arise should come as no surprise.

----
* Basically any changes to {{Facebook}} will trigger this. For that matter, any changes to ''any'' website will cause this reaction for users.
* UsefulNotes/FurryFandom. See that quote on the top of the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom page? That's in contention.
** So bad that when Randy Milholland has a ''SomethingPositive'' forum, he banned the use of the word "furry" after his memorable StoryArc that had [=PeeJee=] actually finding out just what a "furry" is.
** Also, more recently the large amount of furries who have also taken up an interest in WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic have received a lot of flak from furries who do not like the show.
*** And also from people who like the show, but don't like furries.
** Adam "Zaush" Wan- sexual predator, or innocent?
* YouTubePoop is split between people who take its creators' intentions to heart and make videos with increasingly higher volume, more filters and more obscure sources without thinking that something that was originally made for annoyance's sake might evolve into something you do for laughs, and people who apply the RuleOfFunny to mix and match words and phrases from well-known sources to make funny stories starring the characters from these sources but think Poop started with the CD-i. Examples of both, mostly the former, can be found on [[http://www.youchewpoop.com/forum/ Youchew Poop]].
* Beautifully summed up and parodied by ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_872.php here]].
* The new interface for ''{{Stumbleupon}}'' has caused this.
* This Very Wiki: In regards to naming and [[Administrivia/RenamedTropes renaming]] tropes - those who like names that name check {{Trope Maker}}s, {{Trope Codifier}}s and fandom terms - even if everyone outside those fandom are left scratching their heads and wondering what the trope ''is'' - and those who think names should be as universally understandable as possible, even if sacrifices some creativity (or even accuracy) in exchange for accessibility.
** There's heated debates over large extensive example cutting, Troper Tales, RealLife examples etc etc.
** There's also the divide between the Fora and the TroperIRCChannel. The former thinks the latter is filled with {{lolicon}}s and such, and the latter thinks the former is the TV Tropes equivalent of GameFAQs and should be against the law to visit.
* Web pages that use dark text on light backgrounds vs. light text on dark backgrounds. "I'm blinded!" vs "I can't see a damn thing!"
* DeadFantasy, dear ''God''. The internet movie series has sent ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' fans to the throats of ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' fans and vice versa. Hayate's mutilation of [[spoiler: Tifa]] has sent him down the road of hate beyond measure form all fans of FF 7. On the other side DOA fans are pissed that [[spoiler: Tifa]] managed to take down at least a dozen of the Ninja Clan before being stopped. DOA fans also get mad about the fact thier side seems to be the villains and FF seems to get all the attention from the creator, FF fans get mad that the Team DOA is anything ''more'' than the DesignatedVillain and that they're taking up screen time from the FF character of choice.
** This doesn't even begin the touch on [[KingdomHearts Kairi]] and [[NinjaGaiden Rachel]] showing up and the various the {{Flame War}}s the crop up around them.
* The new layout of the comment section on Website/{{Youtube}}.
** ... or for that matter anytime there's a change on youtube, there'll always be someone complaining about it.
** YouTubers are still divided over the ratings system: the original star ratings system vs. the current likes and dislikes system.
** As of recent years, the integration of Google Plus has caused massive outcry (though not enough apparently to change the design) seeing Google Plus' integration as a way to rejuvenate a failed social network (which caused it to fail even worse in many people's eyes)
* Wikia's new layout was not well-received by the majority of the wiki community, especially those with bare-bones knowledge on how to customize their individual wikis.
* This happened with the huge change in layout and use of [[http://thesixtyone.com the sixty one]] a music site. Some people absolutely hated it, making songs about bringing the old sixty one back and the [[http://old.thesixtyone.com version of the website]] is still up for use (though a lot of the old tools have been cut out) because if it was deleted so many people would leave. On the other hand other people have enjoyed the change.
* The Internet itself has a broken base. There are those people who hate how self-absorbed and insular the Internet has become since the advent of social networking and people becoming famous for being online and wish the Internet was as it was before 2001, where it was about people from far-flung parts of the world connecting with each other over shared interests. Then there are those people who are only familiar with the Internet since it's become about self-absorption and "chatting with your friends" -- these people tend to be in the demographic that would've been the original target/base for Facebook, love to spend time on Facebook, have thousands of Facebook friends consisting largely of high school and college friends, etc. -- and who would HATE for the Internet to be as it was from the ARPANET days on. Then there are the people who were too young to experience the Internet as it was from 2000 and earlier, who utilize the Internet as it was meant to be (that exchange with people from throughout the world over shared interests) via Tumblr blogs and the like; they tend to disparage Facebook and similar sites. Then there are the people who were old enough to be online since before 2001 who have always been self-absorbed and uninterested in any exchange of ideas, who love to use Facebook, have thousands of Facebook friends, have always used the Internet just to chat with high school/college friends and work colleagues, etc., who prefer the Internet as it is today over the pre-2001 Internet.
* Just about anything about Website/{{Tumblr}} is this. Was the purchase by Website/{{Yahoo}} the only way to save the website from shutting down, or is it what will doom Tumblr somewhere down the road? Then there's the situation with "Social Justice Warriors" and the way they handle things. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement The less said about that, the better]].
* Website/{{Twitter}}:
** Official clients (such as the website itself, [=TweetDeck=], and official mobile clients) vs. third-party clients (such as Tween and its forks, Tweetbot, and the [[LostForever out-of-user-tokens]] Janetter). Those who use official clients consider them good enough for everyday use and don't have to worry about refresh limits[[note]]Twitter's API, used by third-party clients, limits users to 15 timeline, mention, and message refreshes every 15 minutes, among other things[[/note]] or limited features such the lack of group messages or favorite and retweet activity. Those who prefer third-party clients prefer them for the lack of ads and addition of extra features not found in official clients such as choosing third-party image hosts, live streaming of tweets, and muting tweets by keyword or tweet source rather than just muting users.
** Subtweets, i.e. carrying a public conversation without @-mentioning whoever you're talking to. Some get some giggles out of exchanging conversation and being sneaky about it, but others consider it timeline clutter and a nuisance especially to those who don't follow every user involved in the conversation.
** The practice of replying to someone but putting their @-username somewhere besides the very beginning of the tweet, so that everyone following the replying user--not just those following the replying user and the recipient--sees their side of the conversation. Some don't mind it much and feel that it encourages them to discover new friends, but others argue that if they really want to see conversations involving people they don't follow, they'll just view the replying user's timeline instead.
** The 140-character limit for tweets. Opponents don't like how it makes meaningful posts and conversations difficult to carry out, while proponents point out that Twitter began as an SMS-based service--hence the character limit--and that the character limit is here to stay as long as Twitter offers the option to send and receive tweets via SMS, as uplifting the limit would be unfair to those who can only afford texting plans.
