I wasn't saying I was right with those. I was saying your arguments don't make sense, and that they're unfounded. It's not like I was saying you're wrong and I'm right because you spell "does" as "dose".
You say it's complaining, and that's as far as your argument goes. As I said before, if the examples aren't of a complaining nature, but are still legitimate examples of the trope, complaining is not inherent in the trope.
No, it's not Appeal To Majority
, since it's not a logical true/false argument as such. It's an argument of
majority. To change or cut a page on TV Tropes
is decided by a majority (generally a 2:1 majority).
This is a Subjective Trope
, so an absolute definition of what fits or not isn't needed, as long as the example explains why it fits on the page.
Now, Inferred Holocaust
or No Endor Holocaust
having too much overlap with this for them to be considered different tropes is a valid argument. It is, however, a different argument from "complaining" or the concept being wrong. It's still not an argument that holds up, though. Both of those tropes are much more specific than this one. They both specifically refer to End Of The World
scenarios and other catastrophic events. Esoteric Happy Ending
is about any
ending that may not be as happy as first thought.
