In only the second entry on the Anime section, Allen Walker from D. Gray Man is referred to by the male pronoun but he's listed in the Female category.

A lot of the page links are Red Text like they're empty but clicking on them shows they're just fine.

The redlinker thingy changed how it worked recently. If you edit the page (even a null edit, opening the edit screen and saving without making a change), they'll turn blue.

Does anyone else feel less comfortable receiving service from a Stepford Smiler than someone who's not smiling?

no Forever Alone?

That guy's the most miserable man ever, yet he smiles.

I think that this article should be split into the 3 kinds of smiler. There is enough examples to make 3 full articles.

Do we have some sort of rule against Real Life examples, or were those all deleted in another one of those weird glitches that come as the result of someone not knowing how to edit the page? I'm putting them back in for now, because I don't see anything about it here.

Not sure of how to handle this, well, tastefully. Putting it up here.

  • The daughters of Amy Chua, a woman who wrote a book extolling the virtues of totalitarian Chinese parenting.
    • Careful there, Your Mileage May Vary by a LOT on how to interpret that article. Your interpretation will change whether or not Chua's daughters are Stepford Smilers. Also, be VERY VERY careful about using "totalitarian", as that make people think of Nazis, which is not necessarily true.

I dunno. I'm pretty sure it'd be impossible to crack a genuine smile if your parents refused to let you live out your childhood like an actual child.

"One of the reasons for the "grim Russian" stereotype is that in Russian culture anyone who smiles when talking to complete strangers is assumed to be either a Stepford Smiler or just an insincere person. There is an old Russian joke about this: "Americans look at you with phony politeness. We look at you with sincere hatred"."

So does this mean that, in Russia, one has to be a Stepford Frowner?
