I'll be the five millionth person to say: Lolita should be restored. Besides what everyone else says, it really hurts this site's credibility if a work like that is banned because it's considered "pro-pedophilia," both because of how it makes TV Tropes look bad to be censoring discussions of literary classics, and the fact that that seeing it as "pro-pedophile" is something that pretty much only people who have never read the book or any sort of criticism on it think, and it really makes it look like the people running TV Tropes do not know literature if they fall for a misconception that huge. The people who think Lolita
is pro-pedophile are pretty much exclusively Moral Guardians
who have never read the book. It's well known to anyone who has, or is even the least bit familiar with it, that Humbert is a Villain Protagonist
and an Unreliable Narrator
I understand if it had to be taken down temporarily to be cleaned up so that any pedo-related ads don't go on there, and I understand restricting the restored page so only certain people can edit it, but it really REALLY
should be restored when this is all over.
