Quite a number of examples seem to be just "the number 3 appears in this work" or "something is done 3 times" rather than being true examples of this trope.

If nobody minds, I'm going to bookmark this page and do some pruning on it occasionally.

This is listed under Self-Demonstrating Article, but I don't see how it is one.

The page quote doesn't have a source—it looks like a troper just made it up. (The only Bing hit for the quote is the TVTtropes page. I'm going to replace it with Lewis Carrol's "What I tell you three times is true" from Snark—is that okay?

"This Youtube video." Entry from Real Life.

The video that it led to has been removed due to repeated third-party copyright infringement.

Since it seems unlikely an acceptable substitute for the entry can be found, I removed it.

"The Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The first sometimes is represented by an eye set in a triangle."

If you read the King James, the New International, or the New World translations, none of them actually use the word 'trinity'. The Holy Spirit is represented more as a active force of Jehovah God rather then independent entity in its own right.
