That percented-out note about "will you still find this awesome" is really smarmy and condescending. It is subjective and people can disagree and those moments still have the right to be listed. Or is There Is No Such Thing as Notability gonna get tossed out the window now?

Eh, I actually agree with it.

People are so liberal with the Awesome pages that some of them actually wind up closer to a recap page. Seriously, the Game of Thrones Awesome pages are worthless because every single scene gets listed.

People list them out so freely that it kind of dilutes them so much that the honor of getting listed kinda disappears. I'm all for anything that sorta limits that.

Please forgive me because I haven't watched the show, but...a lot of these examples sound less like crowning moments of awesome and more "they covered this issue that I think is important and I agreed with them". Just wondering if some cleanup would be necessary.

I agree whole-heartedly.

How does one go about fixing this, then? Does a panel of people who've seen each moment get together and discuss whether or not something fits? Does someone make decisions based on wording? It's subjective, so I'd rather not go through and say "this doesn't SOUND awesome, so I'm deleting it".

But seriously, this is turning into a catalog for clever political rebuttals of "Jon pointed this out" rather than "gee that was sure awesome". But I'm hesitant to remove anything because then people will shout "IT'S SUBJECTIVE IT'S SUBJECTIVE" or just re add it without bothering to explain why.

I say you can start with taking out the zero-context examples (anything that's barely a sentence along the lines of 'Bullshit mountain again'), and if you're feeling adventurous, prune the ones that don't have some kind of effect, or don't otherwise showcase how far the show's gone. Them getting Crossfire canceled? Yes. Them getting that armed forces health care bill passed? Yes. Them getting the President to show up? Yes. Jon yelling for five minutes about something everyone agrees on? Not so much.

I'm sorry, exactly when did it become acceptable to start policing what people find awesome?

I think that part of this is "Jon said something I disagreed with and someone else listed it as an Awesome Moment and That Is Very Bad."
