Does it count as what an idiot if someone in universe lampshades how moronic it was?

That would make it an In-Universe example, so yes.

Think we should take all the advertising examples from the "other" sub-page and give them their own sub-page? Considering that this could include people Too Incompetent to Operate a Blanket, that could fill up pretty fast.

Who else thinks this should be renamed to avoid any ? If it should, perhaps something along the lines of Unsympathetic Stupidity would fit well?

Nah, I don't think there is a problem that requires renaming, and we've pulled this page already once through the Trope Repair Shop.

We seriously need to put the "NO Justifying Edits" rule on all pages as well because its getting a bit silly.

Why do some real life examples don't identify the person? Like the one about the teacher abusing her sick leave? Please reply, or else it makes me mad

removed the following from the anime page
- Love Hina: When Keitaro had to choose between Naru and Mutsumi and decide which of them truly was his long-lost childhood friend, who he made a promise to get into Tokyo University with and eventually wed.
You'd expect: He would pick Mutsumi, who is not only the second nicest person to him of the whole cast in general (Shinobu is the nicest), she's the only one who does not hit him when he does something that looks wrong. It's even explicitly stated she is a female version of him!
Instead: He picks Naru, who beats him regularly, calls him names, and once refused to study with him for fear of catching bad grades! Anvilicious is an understatement, here, people!!
However: It could be argued that the question isn't necessarily who he would decide to make that promise with now, but rather who is his Old Friend that he made the promise to then.

Alright what is the difference between this trope and idiot ball?
