Removed, because this looks like normal atheism to me:
  • Hollywood Atheist: Played straight by Janie when she starts looking into religion, she decides they're all full of it.

There’s an It's a Wonderful Plot in the latest arc. It should be added.

The place to ask is here.

Something for the article when its unlocked.

Compressed Hair: here

How long is the article going to be locked? I was gonna add a Shout-Out to the list, since they sorta did a crossover of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and Skyrim.

Please ask for an edit request in the threads linked from Locked Pages.

I'm sure this comic has a trope attached to it, can't think of which one right now. It has a creepy rape face and the insinuation that you are nicotine's bitch in there though.

Try going to Lost and Found.

Imaginary Enemy seems a good fit, although the article is locked at present.

These entries have to be rewritten according to How to Write an Example:

I'd like to have the Parental Abandonment trope added (re: the 'lost boys arc' and the 'muffin arc'). The kids seem to left mostly on their own and without supervision, e.g.: no teachers in school to stop the muffin conflict and sack rampaging wannabe heroes.
04:17:25 PM Jul 11th 2011
Wouldn't the muffin arc be more of an example of Adults Are Useless? There's one mention of the teachers not being pleased with the various vigilante students, but they apparently can't do anything about a riot taking place on school grounds.
08:41:20 AM Jul 19th 2011
I guess that would work as well.
10:41:48 AM Apr 15th 2011
It's weird that there's no mention of Ayn Rand, Naylor's main influence.
01:53:46 PM May 6th 2011
I won't be surprised if the muffin arc culminates in a 70 page speech.
12:06:19 AM Jul 16th 2010
Why is the page locked? I keep wanting to add tropes from the new comics (and I'm not a hater, I'm of neutral opinion toward the comic). It just seems weird to keep a page off-limits for so long.
12:31:38 AM Jul 16th 2010
It's back.
09:20:24 AM Dec 1st 2010
And now it's off again. Damnit assholes, can we please, please just have an article without the soapboxing? It's not like the guy's the fucking Antichrist.
07:49:31 AM Dec 2nd 2010
Last time I checked there wasn't any "negative" stuff, but really who knows that that means anymore
07:48:43 PM Feb 16th 2011
So... Why does the article say "Be cautious while editing" while it's locked?

At least delete that. This comic sounds like a load of crap, but that doesn't mean the page has to be a load of crap
01:59:17 AM Apr 1st 2011
I vote for, if we can't unlock this, for one of the mods to make some edits to this page. At the very least the whole 'muffins' arc has a lot of tropes to add to this entry.
01:49:27 PM May 6th 2011
To be fair, it's neigh impossible to comment on the current arc (the muffin one) without trashing it (unless you are a Rand-worshipping libertarian), so it's probably for the best to keep it locked until it's over, just in case the author is planning a major subversion (although I don't believe it).
05:09:53 PM Oct 3rd 2011
Either unlock it or update it, FCS. I understand that you're trying to keep the page from becoming a battlefield, but if it's not being updated at all that's even worse. The point of locking it is to make sure the page is good, but how is having tropes from only the first two chapters any better?
06:44:14 AM Jul 4th 2012
The Muffin Arc ended long ago. I, for one, am in favor of unlocking this page. I think enough time has passed for the wounds to have healed, and people will be much less negative in updating this
05:43:18 AM Nov 12th 2012
And now the comic is about a kid genius / drug baron and how universal health care creates a nanny state in which the free market is unfairly oppressed by the government.

Just keep it locked.

I, uh, wow, I've only read the first category and it seems pretty biased, or it looks like someone took humour too seriously.

  • Judging by this comic,◊ Elizabeth's hatred of children reaches far beyond her own flesh-and-blood. - Um, what? I thought it was a joke; the child is looking for donations to combat global warming on what is shown to a freezing cold day.

In the very first comic, she shows a clear favouritism towards her daughters over her son. - I might be a little slow on the uptake, but this just looked like humour to me.

Hilariously enough just above this I've seen my first ever link to "Rule of Cautious Editing Judgement".

Needs to be made a bit more neutral in tone, I'd say. Perhaps moved to WMG or ACI.

Was going to remark on this myself. Either someone's been reading WAY too much into things, or a member of Jay Naylor's Hatedom has gone on an editorial rampage. I don't know about the rest of you Tropers, but none of the things remarked upon in the Abusive Parents category strikes me as remotely appropriate, barring perhaps the comment about Charlie's football game. Example, the fact that Elizabeth didn't make a fuss over Janie's black eye? Mayhaps the fact that Janie herself didn't even care about it and did her little gloating dance might've had something to do with it... And as for Elizabeth getting angry at her kids and telling them off? She had reason to, as far as I have seen. Hell, can anyone honestly say they've never had the "Sunny weather, get out there and play!" fight with their parents when they were little?

Personally after this arc it seems clear why Thomas is the Unfavorite.

First, this is not the place to bring the argument about global warming "denialists". Stop trying to bring it here.

Second, because some "deniers" use an argument does not equal out to all of them using it, and thus it can still be used as a strawman, especially if it's presented in an extremely insulting way.

Third, if you disagree with the second, then I move that we delete all references to Hollywood Atheist being used as a strawman, as I've actually met atheists like that, and thus by that logic they all are and the portrayal is Truth in Television.
