It's not a matter of being a doormat, it's a matter of precision
, both of which are sacrificed here in the altar of Snark and Cheap Shots. The more I look at this page, the more I see a problem of Misuse and Lack of Clarity. Obviously
a prose that obscures the meaning with Big Words
and overwrought metaphors is not
the best material to make a Self Demonstrating
description article from, because all people seem to have gotten from it was "this is for flowery prose I don't like", which, in practice, translates to "any flowery prose except for those of the Classic Masters, unless another Classic Master is insulting them for it, in which case I'll let them
do the bashing".
More importantly, I am 100% behind being a "doormat"; the content of a wiki stabilizes at consensus
. This wiki does not have an ideological mission, it does not stand for some cause, it wants to catalogue and classify the tropes in fiction, in a way that takes as little time out of its volunteer managers as possible.
