The Fine Brothers may very well qualify for this page, given enough time.

Definitely way premature. They've had backlash, sure, but I doubt they'll hit that point.

Does Bob Chipman really count as being Deader Than Disco? He's always been a divisive figure, even before the Metroid/Mass Effect episodes.

Getting pulled from The Escapist might have something to do with it.

I'm pretty sure that blip.tv qualifies. Once the go-to site for online reviewers like the Nostalgia Critic, it eventually reached the point where the website went defunct in August 2015. If anyone can help me with a longer write-up, that would be great.

No, it doesn't.

The trope is not "thing isn't around anymore."

It's when something fell so out of favor that people are embarrassed to have liked it in the first place.

Do you think famous brony musician Gabriel Brown (AKA Blackgryph0n) could be added to this list?

Judging by some recent Equestria Daily commenters, people are starting to like him less due to his huge ego, and are creeped out by the fact that his best friend is a 16 year-old girl.

(Note: these are their words, not mine.)

"Famous brony musician". Really.

The trope is not, "people are starting to like him less." It's when the vast majority of his fans are embarrassed to have ever liked him in the first place, and admitting so is embarrassing.

I mean, it probably should be, but that's beside the point.

Regarding the Edit War: I'm pretty sure that "Over 9000" is actually still a pretty common meme and not a discredited one.

Yeah, much to my dislike. I did message them as well.

Would Something Awful and Xanga fit this category? I haven't heard anything about the former in years while the latter seemed to lose steam after MySpace became popular.

The item for Windows operating systems includes the following: " . . . and it [XP] is also still used by consumers who do not wish to upgrade their OS, even though Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft."

This is technically an error, at least at the moment when I'm writing this (March 6, 2014). Microsoft support for XP will not end until April 8, so it has one month of life left. But this is an error that will correct itself, so it hardly seems worthwhile to do anything about it now.
