Recently, I removed an example that doesn't seem to fit in with this trope, as it was a square peg, so to speak. I thought it would suit better for the general Berserk Button page as the group is too broad. Unfortunately, it's a Real Life example, which was advised against for that page. So where does it go?

The example in question was public transport.

Keep it off the wiki altogether?

May have to resort to that, yeah.

In the meantime, the page might need to be checked for other examples that misuse this.

(This is no longer needed since I added the examples here to their respective pages.)

What does the term FAWK mean? I've never seen that term before, and the word is only used under the video game folder.

  • Similarly, it is pronounced Neh-va-duh not Neh-vah-duh.

Can someone who knows clarify this? As written the distinction is a little murky. I assume it's the difference between and ɑː (for most Americans, a as in "pass" vs. a as in "father") but as written I can't tell for certain which is meant to be which. There's also no indication of stress, though I suspect it's on the second syllable in both cases.

Did a little research, and you're right, the "a" in the first pronunciation is meant to sound like that in "bad." Ironically, both pronunciations are etymologically wrong, as the state was named after a Spanish word pronounced subtly differently from both, but closer to the latter (quote-unquote "incorrect") pronunciation. Added more clarification to the example.

Is it just me, but has this drifted from "common mistakes that set fans off" to "anything that sets dedicated fans off".

Because the latter seems to be covered by Internet Backdraft while the former needs its own trope.

The difference is pure YMMV. I am not sure if I would even try to differentiate.

I'm on the fence about this, but would calling D&D out as satanic qualify as a Fan Berserk Button? I imagine it would get you kicked out of most gaming establishments.

On a different note, would the whole "sex scene" scandal qualify as a massive example of a Fan Berserk Button being pressed? Just an afterthought.

The moral of this page is, "Fans take the things they like way too seriously."

Also, anyone who thinks punk is centered around the fashion (as the "Fashion" section states) is probably not an actual punk, and is more likely to be into Green Day and blink-182 than Minor Threat and Bad Brains.

Am I the only person who don't get the tattoo part at the end of a Real Life section?

On the subject of the Wii U, would "it's not next-gen" and "it's less powerful than the PS3 and Xbox 360" count as berserk buttons?

Is the title written as "Fando M" to be self-demonstrating?

Nope. That's just an error in whatever link sent you here — Fandom Berserk Button and Fando M Berserk Button are the same page.

Could we at least have kept Nerd Rage as a title? I'm really, really starting to hate SPOON.
