Reasoning for pulling this entry from the main page, and suspicion that it's an Unpublished Work despite clear sourcing.

Mild annoyance at the mover of the page forgetting to holler for it, and a notice that it should be fixed soon.

Demand to cutlist the trope or at least banish it to Sugar Wiki because it is too whimsical and unbecoming, followed by a minor rant that troping is Serious Business and humor has no place here. Ends with a demand that if it isn't going to get deleted or hidden, to at least change the name to something less fun.

Complaint in response to the above troper. Accusation of above troper being a Stop Having Fun Guy.

A suggestion to change the name of the page to Self Explanatory Generic Trope Name, in a desperate attempt to prevent the page from being sent to Sugar Wiki or cutlisted, placed by someone who never looked at how old the above comments were.

Comment about how stupid the new name for this trope is and that there was no reason to change the old one.

Heated argument between two opposing shippers who each think they're being completely objective in their character interpretations.

Comment actually pertinent to the trope page that's been buried beneath the novel's-worth of text that makes up the heated shippers' argument.

Largely nonsensical response to pertinent comment that contains several baffling suggestions and is written in only a loose approximation of the English language.

Heated demand that shippers take their petty arguments elsewhere, if not disappear totally; loud declaration that non-shippers are better than shippers on the basis that they never get involved in petty arguments and are totally self-aware, unlike those idiots.

Question I asked on many other pages on whether the current stinger is better than the old Statler and Waldorf one.

Indignant post about there being no need for multiple stingers. Request to pick one only. note 

Relink of removed stinger:

Statler: And us!
Waldorf: Saying something funny!
Both: Do-ho-ho-ho-ho!

(Note that this was edited by another troper over a year later to improve the formatting.)

A commend indicating that another stinger was added that fits more closely to the page's style.

Announcement that this troper will make any number of well-intentioned but nonetheless absurd changes to the page unless someone happens to stumble onto this discussion in time to tell me not to.

Reply indicating that it's totally okay to proceed with absurd editing plan, due to This Troper having little-to-no experience with wiki etiquette.

Complaint that this article is the most poorly-edited page on the entire website, invoking blatant hyperbole but showing no incentive to repair the page.

Insinuation that everyone but this troper is lazy for not having fixed this already, likely in the form of an ultimatum!

Complaint against the shoe-horning of how the trope is used in Anime and Manga on the main page.

Passionate defense of said shoe-horning, attempting to justify it as showing that this trope is used ever-so-slightly differently in Japan than it is in the West.

Rant or misplaced review that has nothing to do with the trope, any tropes like it, or even the TV Tropes website itself, written by an unknown Troper.

Link to the Image Pickin' forum claiming that the trope image is Just a Face and a Caption and needs to be changed. The suggested replacement image will invariably be from a show being entry pimped by the OP (and may or may not illustrate the trope better).

Mr Death: Response to above, mistakenly put in by editing previous troper's post rather than hitting Reply.

re:Cut

Thought process behind decision to not cut page, described in an elaborate manner, detailing positive and negative aspects of the current format of the page, comparisons to other similar tropes, a short catalogue of similar decisions and an admonishment of an overeagerness to use the Cut List before making a forum thread.

Opinion from a guy who didn't bother to even check the timestamps or discussion link and thus doesn't know that, in fact, the matter has already been resolved for months.
