As far as I can tell, Grandfather Clause is the only
decent argument for keeping the name.
Not the only
one. Lack of misuse is another. Many inbound links is one more.
Really, lets remember why
we rename stuff in the first place. To get less confusion right? To have a name people remember right? If so, why rename a Trope that is both well known (here and elsewhere) and there is no misuses? What are we accomplishing here? Because maybe
, someone might
confuse it? Because the name is not "intuitive"? Look at the Cue Cullen
/ And The Fandom Rejoice
, for example. The previous name was not intuitive, but (apparently), there were no many misuses. The new name, appear
to be clearer but only caused more
misuses. It was a shot in our own foot. And about not being 'intuitive'? What is the problem? If people are not getting wrong, but are
getting it (proven be the many inbound links), shouldn't it be OK? It is not like every name of every concept is easy to understand if you don't read the definition, anyway.
