My only problem with the title is that Evil Bondage might not indicate that it's specifically about it being portrayed as wrong. Whatever the title was, it would have to be clearly outlined that having villain with a BDSM theme, or a morally questionable character who practices or appears to practice BDSM, doesn't count as an automatic attack on the entire thing.
I agree with Mikuru that "Evil Bondage" implies there's tropes (or should be tropes) for Good Bondage or Neutral Bondage. I think Bondage Is Evil could be a compromise, though. It implies the work is calling bondage evil instead of saying that this is the evil version/side of bondage.
"Bad Guys Like Bondage" could fit in Good People Have Good Sex, unless the bondage is shown to be more like Brains and Bondage (that is, a smart and good thing).
Bondage-Themed Baddies would probably fit into something like the following list. Just remember that it's a costume motif first and foremost—as far as I can tell from this entire thread. I listed personality stereotypes as optional to reflect that.
I think it's probably a good time to close it.
We'd need to go through the examples that are on Bondage Is Bad, and work out which ones meet the requirements of one of the new tropes and which are neither, for sorting onto the new pages. Does anyone else have any name suggestions?

What would be the best way to fix the page?
Bondage Is Bad has no strict guidelines on what it covers, and presently includes examples based on costumes, dialogue, the perceived attitudes of the authors, and other things. It is also being used as a platform for attacking works deemed to portray it in an unacceptable way.
Three tropes have been suggested; these names are not final.
BDSM Is Evil: The practice itself is actively (read: not just if you look at it a certain way) portrayed as base and immoral.
Bad Guy Likes Bondage: A villain is shown to have an interest in BDSM.
Bondage Themed Baddie: A villain has a BDSM theme or motif.
