I'm newish and unfamiliar with the community zeitgeist, so I'm not sure if I should make an edit. Under "Real Life," someone references a case where a person convinced others to perform a rectal exam using this trope, and seems to be implying that it was a ha ha funny thing. Is that something I should a) delete b) rewrite in such a way as to not imply that assault is humorous, or c) respond to with a sub-bullet indicating that assault isn't humorous. Or is there a d) that I haven't thought of.

Option B is correct. The example is valid, ruling out A, and C leads to Conversation in the Main Page and incorrect Example Indentation. If there is a D, I haven't thought of it either. Thanks for catching the problem, and welcome to TVT!

Is this related to Armchair Psychology in anyway? I think this or Politeness Judo is what makes that page so weird and aggravating.

Edited this:
In Sneakers, Robert Redford claims (and demonstrates!) that all you need to get into any building in the world is a clipboard and a confident wave.
Because it was Michael Keaton in The Paper, not Redford in Sneakers.

This seriously needs either a rename and/or a new description. It's not very clear.

The name is arguably kind of unintuitive (though it's also established, which should count for something). But what's unclear about the description?

For further reference: The name and the redirects were discussed in a Trope Repair Shop.
