Page Action: Real Life Section Maintenance 13

Go To

What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

Deciding which pages should have their Real Life sections removed, and be listed on No Real Life Examples Please. Reasons to do so include contentiousness and high potential for flame wars.

Vote UP if you think the page's RL section should be cut.

Vote DOWN if you think the page should still be allowed RL examples.

Items with the trope name stricken (like so) have already been decided, with ten or more total votes, more than 48 hours on the crowner, and at least a 2:1 yes/no ratio. No further voting is needed on those items.

To check if something has already been voted on, please see Keep Real Life Examples.

Evil Old Folks: Calling people evil
[Added 9th Dec '13 at 08:11:22 PM]

Asian Rudeness: Calling real people rude.
[Added 14th Dec '13 at 10:30:25 AM]

Grim Up North: There are no Dark Lords, Undeads, hordes of evil etc in Real Life. Neither North, South, or anywhere in between.
[Added 9th Dec '13 at 10:55:41 AM]

Good Parents: Too subjective. It will only lead to endless debates on which parents are good and which parents are not. Plus, examples will be too common.
[Added 1 Jan'14 at 6:45:50 PM]

In the Future, Humans Will Be One Race: Future trope, real life examples are impossible. Examples can only be shoehorned in. Much of what is there can be moved under Analysis.

Mr. Seahorse: Speculative "examples", others are Square Peg, Round Trope.

What You Are in the Dark: By discussing who "fails" and "passes" this morality test, we are passing judgement on real life people's actions, which isn't what this wiki is about.

Jews Love to Argue: Ethnic stereotype.
[Added 24th Dec '13 at 05:47:59 AM]

All Jews Are Cheapskates: Ethnic stereotype.
[Added 3rd Jan '14 at 08:31:49 PM]

Those Wacky Nazis: Stereotyping real people as Nazis, and when they actually are real Nazis, we don't need a listing of them on the site.
[Added 14th Dec '13 at 10:33:32 AM]

Jewish Complaining: Ethnic Stereotyping.
[Added 6th Jan '14 at 06:47:21 PM]

Child Eater - Villain Trope.
[Added 6th Jan '14 at 06:48:20 PM]

Mighty Whitey and Mellow Yellow: Involves lots of fetishizing of real people.
[Added 14th Dec '13 at 10:30:57 AM]

All Germans Are Nazis: Stereotyping real people as Nazis, and when they actually are real Nazis, we don't need a listing of them on the site.
[Added 14th Dec '13 at 10:32:54 AM]

Wacky Americans Have Wacky Names: Mocking actual people's names, and we're not in the business of deciding if real people are "Wacky".
[Added 28th Dec '13 at 08:45:33 AM]

Cessation of Existence: Already devoid of real life examples and includes a hidden disclaimer forbidding them.
[Added 30th Dec '13 at 05:55:41 PM]

Dumbass Teenage Son: This wiki wasn't a place to call a teenage boy jerkasses.
[Added 7th Jan '14 at 09:09:14 AM]

Southern-Fried Private: The one example is misuse, and the trope relies on some rather unflattering stereotypes that should not be applied to real people.
[Added 28th Dec '13 at 08:44:31 AM]

Continue RL ban in Permanent Elected Official: Contradictory description on NRLEP page. (Positive: fix description; negative: remove ban)
[Added 29th Dec '13 at 11:09:15 AM]

Marry Them All: Narrative device, natter target
[Added 7th Jan '14 at 06:43:20 PM]

Mafia Princess: Prone to misuse and we don't need to be listing real people based on being related to criminals.
[Added 28th Dec '13 at 08:46:59 AM]

Please do NOT add new options to this crowner so that we can get it closed and hook a fresh one. It's far too long already, and the new entries get lost at the bottom under all the ones that have already been decided.

Operator from India: Seems to attract a fair amount of complaining.
[Added 14th Dec '13 at 10:31:38 AM]

Not So Different: Morality trope.
[Added 16th Dec '13 at 08:16:55 AM]

(re-listing?) Love It or Hate It: should have exemption from No Real Life Examples Please, (solely) for examples which are scientifically proven and hence objective.
[Added 25th Dec '13 at 01:03:36 PM]

The Mafia - We don't need to be listing real people and places based on being related to criminals.
