How does Snark Bait not apply?

Snark Bait, if you read the trope, is for works that are of poor quality, but are still enjoyed by audiences for the specific purpose of making fun of them. It is not a "whine trope" that you can list when you don't like something and want to complain about it.

Also, those "sources" are mostly weird, between-the-lines, conspiracy theory nonsense that I can't make heads or tails of despite the bitter red text screaming about the connections.

I just removed the link to ED, as I don't think we need links to that site. That site has more problems than just being "Full of assholes".

...Well, I'm just going to write that I disagree heartily with pimpdaddy's recent edits. I think that they encourage a reductive, "black or white" reading of a deliberately complex and ambiguous situation, and that they are more focused on swatting down analysis that the editor doesn't like than contributing to the trope page.

I understand the desire not to see the YMMV page turn into a swamp of incoherent whining, pimpdaddy. The Cracked.com version has needed fumigating for a while. But disagreeing with a particular kind of analysis is not always call for deleting it, particularly on a page specifically made for posting controversial tropes that everyone might not agree with.

pimpdaddy, this is the second time you've gone through a page that's supposed to contain opinion-based content with a meat-axe based on your own interpretation of the material. Please stop doing that.

Pulled this:

  • Unfortunate Implications: So, it's perfectly okay for two teenaged girls to steal literally everything a family owns of value and run off to Mexico to become lovers?'' Though, the game never says if this is wrong or not, so opinion differs on whether or not the game implies that this action is morally reprehensible.

As per the Unfortunate Implications page: 'no example may be added in this article or on a work article, without proof that it's not just one person thinking.' In other words, citation is required.

I am not even sure if that is an Aesop in any fashion; it sounds more like Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory to me.

I don't know about anyone else, but when I got to the "Waiting in the attic part," I was absolutely TERRIFIED of what I would find.

Yeeaaaah, me too. Sam's immediately prior entry of just going upstairs to the Attic to "sleep"...I was more than a little worried.
