I don't see any internal contradiction to the Mantra and the point of the show. I think it's perhaps just lampshading the fact that people take the issues of bad movies too seriously, instead of just taking the mick out of them as part of the entertainment.

Then again, I haven't watched much MST 3 K so I wouldn't know...

Why no examples? Or did it have no examples to begin with? Or maybe example sectionectomy occurred, and there is NO evidence left?

I prefer to think that the sheer number of examples crashed the Internet, causing the collapse of Western civilization, and we now exist in an alternate universe where last-minute actions by travelers from the future preserved us all.

Is there a particular reason why we can't mention this on other pages? It's pretty much a central tenet on my Times Like This webcomic (though I call it the "Mystery Science Theater Defense").

Do ymmv's on other pages contain anything leading back to this trope?

I'm wondering if the image of Spike from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic with the YouTube autocaption "it's a cartoon show" would be appropriate as a page image.

I feel like the trope name relies too much on people being familiar with Mystery Science Theatre. Can we at least get an alternate name for the trope?

This is a site made by and for pop-culture nerds. I don't think it's unreasonable for trope names to refer to well-known series within said culture — particularly when the entry itself explains why the trope is called what it is and where the name came from.

When did this page get hacked down to a dry Wikipedia entry? =/

Please tell me that the latest crusade isn't to try to make TV Tropes entries humorless echoes of The Other Wiki.

Um, the page's just like it has always been.

It is just like it has been since the last time it was edited.

That's not the same as "just like it has always been".

Well, guy, this is a wiki. You can always "change it back" yourself.

While your first answer was only inaccurate, your second answer had nothing to do with my questions. I asked when it happened, and whether the current fad is to Wikify TV Tropes.

However, I should give you credit for sorta answering the second question (though not intentionally or directly), by giving me the standard answer to blow someone off on Wikipedia. Even if it did have nothing to do with my questions.

Alright, I'll answer your "questions".

1) The page, as it is right now, is more-or-less just like how it has appeared ever since August 2010 at the latest.

2) No, the "current fad" isn't to "Wikify" Tvtropes. The current plan is to bring some more order and more rigid standards to the main wiki pages. The "fun" is not going away; that is, unless your idea of "fun" consists of bashing works you don't like.

This page is responsible for so many Sink Holes, it's not even funny.

I don't care what the main page says, the "La La La"s are not optional.

Someone please hyperlink "It's just a week in the desert," because I may be Late to the Punchline. Part of me is thinking about the Six-Day War  *, part of me is thinking along the lines of A Simple Plan (the trope)...
