We know that, mate. We just don't have the workforce to do it.

Yeah, I know. Just trying to keep it in the public eye, is all.

Checked up to and including "Al". The ones remaining in that segment are all legit usage.

Out of curiosity, what does "A character takes refuge in audacity, " mean, exactly?

[up]I'm glad you asked because I'm wondering the same. I thought it meant a character would do something considered uncouth and or shocking, not just for shock value but because the action would made make him/her feel better (despite deliberately upsetting or making everyone else uncomfortable). However, it's been used in so many different ways, I honestly decided to hold off using it until this all get sorted out.

^ That's... not the trope at all.

RIA has nothing to do with making the perpetrator feel better. It's basically taking the opposite tack from Getting Crap Past the Radar for the same ultimate goal: get away with something that wouldn't otherwise fly with The Man(tm).

People in general tend to overlook things that are so ridiculously over-the-top because they can't (or don't want to) accept the notion that what they saw happen actually did happen, due to it being so beyond any sense of reason, logic, or expectations of a given scenario.

I failed to mention this earlier, but I marked the trope as In-Universe Examples Only because that is how the crowner and discussion seemed to interpret it.

Wait, there is a problem with this trope?

Please read the thread, Cloud.
'He strutted across the bedroom, his hard manhood pointing the way' sounds like he owns a badly named seeing-eye dog. 'Sit, Hard Manhood!
Sorry! -embarrassed- I just came here from reading that page and noticed a link at the top I have never seen before. I was a little surprised.

Well... I guess I want to help. Though I don't think someone like me with no editing skills and short attention span would do much.

Any progress on this?

Clock is set. Does this need to be moved to Short Term Projects?

The clock is up; I'll ask: Is there a point in still trying to do this effort? It's been stalled for almost two years, and has never moved forward at all.

Apparently not. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
