Page Action: Completely Missing The Point

Go To

What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

Completely Missing The Point is currently massively misused as a complaining gateway, or as "anyone missing the point about anything at any time." This trope is really supposed to be a humor trope in which someone misses a glaringly obvious point no matter how often it's brought up.

What should be done about this?

(Note: feel free to add pros and cons.)

Leave name as is, clean up wicks and potholes, and appoint a curator to prevent further abuse.
