Has anyone else referred to this as the "pedestrian effect" or is that me mistaking "pedestrian" for "bystander"? I think whether works and gets the idea across.

You could. It would actually make a better name, since this one sounds like dialog.

Bystander or pedestrian? Bystander is the more common name whereas (though I use it) pedestrian may confuse people (sounds like a car trope, I suppose)...

Why no real life examples? The whole basis of S.E.P. is the bystander effect, and no one would have really known about if psychologists hadn't articulated it from the Kitty Genovese case. I checked the reason, and it's simply "too controversial." Why is it too controversial? Is it just too uncomfortable to talk about or something?

Just list some examples here if you feel like it.

No. The Discussion pages are not for getting around the no real life examples rules.

There are a few examples on this page that have been mis-filed, and really belong under Perception Filter. I've removed the entries about the Knight Bus in Harry Potter and the Tardis on Doctor Who. If you see any other mis-filed examples, please move them too.
