'''Basic Trope''': Discussing a certain topic online is an instant BerserkButton to the online community.
* '''Straight''': Someone brings up a topic only to be met with a tirade of angry comments.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Someone mentions a topic which not only started lengthy arguments, but also led the opening poster to be immediately banned from the internet forums.
** Someone mentions a topic and this has made him the most hated user on the internet.
** Someone mentions a topic and everyone posts hateful comments to the OP and [[FlameWar to each other.]]
** The topic is so heated that it only lasts up to 100 pages of angry posts.
** Full-on criminal activity, physical abuse, personal vendettas, death threats, bounties, lawsuits, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking negative vote spamming]]; all against the user, result from the topic's rage.
* '''Downplayed''': Someone mentions a certain topic; they give him a slight rebuke for mentioning it in their boards.
* '''Justified''':
** The online community sees the topic as offensive and inappropriate.
** The online community is just full of rude, hot-headed, and unpleasable assholes.
* '''Inverted''': An online community is full of rude, abrasive, and unfriendly users, but they're feeling in a good mood after a new user brings up a topic which everyone is happy to talk about.
* '''Subverted''': An angry internet response turns into "I was just messing with you, dude!"
* '''Double Subverted''': "...but seriously, GTFO and never come back, u noob!"

* '''Zig Zagged''': While in some areas the heat is vitriolic over the topic, in others the community handles the topic just fine.
* '''Averted''': Someone doesn't get heat for the topic they are talking about.
* '''Enforced''': ???
* '''Lampshaded''': "Now that's a lot of hateful comments all because of one topic."
* '''Invoked''': The user happens to be a {{troll}} who delights in stirring up conflict on the internet.
* '''Exploited''': The troll decided to get a bunch of users banned on purpose. So the next time they're banned, they're forced to remember of being banned for a while from the original forums and forced to go somewhere else entirely different...only for the same troll to do it again. Rinse and repeat.
* '''Defied''': The administrators make a list of topics that new users shouldn't talk about to make sure the forums is a safe and friendly place.
* '''Discussed''': "That's the internet for you. Full of users who haven't went to anger management classes because they don't like one mere topic."
* '''Conversed''': ???
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Most people were so angry at the person mentioning the topic that this affects their repressed anger issues and causes them to make horrible mistakes in their personal lives.
** People are angry for talking about topics that shouldn't be discussed, [[{{Hypocrite}} although it was seemingly okay for them to talk about said topics]] [[KarmaHoudini and never get called out on it.]]
** The moderators decided to block or ban the users who threatened the innocent others after a while who did nothing but making [[InternetToughGuy threats]], [[DudeNotFunny hate speech, inappropriate arguments]], and [[{{Troll}} trolling]] to an excessive degree, and made a note in bold that under no uncertain terms that if they behave like that again, they will not be just warned, but [[PersonaNonGrata efficiently banned from ever communcating in the forums again, along with being unable to publicly post]], after their intentionally repeated unconstructive behavior.
* '''Played For Drama''':
** The person on the receiving end of the backlash was the [[MuggingTheMonster WRONG PERSON]] to call out. Personal information is leaked, identities are stolen, and the forum/website finds itself inoperable due to a vindictive onslaught of DOS attacks and viruses virtue of a member of Anonymous in a bad mood.
** Because of the internet backdraft was with the particular wrong person, the vindicative person decided to expose their activities and indentities, legally or illegally. The people that gave serious threats to that user are now in hot water not only in the forums, but with genuine legal troubles. They are arrested, being exposed to the media, along with their [[{{GIFT}} GIFT identity]], and now incarcerated for attempted murder and serious death threats, as well as being forced to pay a fine, after certain unnecessary attempts they may have committed.
