Does this really need examples?: Love It Or Hate It get usage counts

Slashed down to In-Universe examples only. The page is much shorter now.
Rhymes with "Protracted."

Reopened because apparently this isn't quite done?
So, now we have an issue, which is that someone took off the YMMV banner. Now there are over 600 wicks hanging around, and all of them except for a small handful (there are fewer than a dozen in-universe examples on the page, so there can't be many in the wicks) are used for the Audience Reaction. So.

I made this thread because the Real Life examples on the page were getting out of hand—not to redefine the trope to be completely objective. That's why the crowner points to Discredited Meme (which is YMMV) as a model. Simplest fix is just to put the banner back up and let those wicks naturally migrate back off of the main page onto YMMV, where they belong. In-universe examples still go on the main page whether it has the banner or not, just like with every other Audience Reaction. So that's what I think we should do. How's that sound?

If we don't do that, then we need to do something about this 99% misuse rate.

This page definitely needs to be YMMV. It's an audience reaction that sometimes pops up in-universe, not a trope. I think it's fine to have examples on the YMMV subpages.

Leave as an audience reaction, absolutely.
Neoclassicism, AKA the Tinkerbell school of economics.
Agreed with YMMV, since its still (mis)used as such. Also, should this be in the No Real Life Examples, Please! list, since we dont allow Real Life examples for this anyway?

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

What would be the best way to fix the page?
