Should we remove any entries condemning Steve Jobs now that he has passed on? Control Freak and and Executive Meddling to be precise, out of respect. Since we should Never Speak Ill of the Dead.

Definitely not. His death did nothing to change that those were things that happened, nor are they at all tied to the circumstances of his death. Were they jokes relating to his illness(es), sure, but these? Nope. Pointing out flaws in his actions does not constitute disrespect.

Also, Never Speak Ill of the Dead isn't a TV Tropes policy or anything close to such, last I checked.

Still doesn't explain what happened on the Michael Jackson page when he passed on (all negative tropes of him was removed by the tropers maintaining that page). I'm beginning to think that each page is based on the standards of the current active maintainer, but okay. Your call.

Hi, I created this page (though I didn't write the trope list) and I say, keep the tropes in there. What I see is true and not disrespectful.

Ok, but I will make a YMMV tab. As far as I can see, truthfullliness does not dispend from the Complaining ban - and some tropes look like Complaining to me or are already Subjectives.

I couldn't see a YMMV tab at the top, so I changed the page type to Work. Now there's a YMMV tab, and a bunch more tropes marked for moving. Care to clean it up?

The "Current low-end Mac" is slightly outdated, with the mention of a Core 2 Duo (Recent minis use an i5 or i7). I don't want to step on anybody's toes, so, what should be done? Should the entry just be updated, or a new one created?

I have updated it. Maybe a older Mac Mini entry should be created, but I don't see the last gen Mac Mini as significant.

Hi, I created this page (though it exploded in edits as soon as I posted it) and the Mac Mini entry, and I just wanted the last computer listed to be whatever is the latest Mac people are most likely to be playing video games on. Thanks for the updating.
