I've done some of the preliminary work on this one myself this morning, but as I've been working on it I've come to realize exactly how much help this trope needs.
The root of the problem appears to be that the title seems to have lead quite a few people to confuse it with Mundane Utility
and/or Simple Yet Awesome
, dispite the article clearly explaining what the trope is actually about, things which are awesome with no downside, the inverse of Awesome but Impractical
The result is a sprawling tangle of examples that need to be shuffled around to their proper places in these other two articles and there are quite a few inexplicable examples I can only assume are there because someone decided that they were an awesome thing.
The quote for the page also has nothing to do with the trope itself(and odder still, nothing to do with the incorrect views either...???) which I think is only adding to the confusion, and there's an ongoing discussion for an image, but I'm not sure that the one the crowd seems to be going for fits the trope. Some intervention may be needed there. I've done some of the weeding and pruning, and made an attempt at some "this is not..." red flagging, but this one needs love from the repair shop crew pretty desperately.
