What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

Deciding which pages should have their Real Life sections removed. Reasons to do so include contentiousness and high potential for flame wars.

Adorkable - It's mostly listing editors' Celeb Crushes and projecting their ideas about famous people. Not relevant to this wiki's mission.

Putting on the Reich - The trope is about using uniform designs as a shorthand for "evil group". Not only is the wiki not for calling real life people evil, but most RL people don't go "hey, let's make it obvious we're evil".

Everyone Has Standards - In Real Life, this is People Sit On Chairs, and the Real Life section is being used as a thinly veiled place to house examples of Even Evil Has Standards.

Being Evil Sucks - because we don't call real people evil.

The Chew Toy - The related tropes Butt-Monkey and The Woobie do not allow Real Life examples because they objectify the person.

If You're So Evil, Eat This Kitten - Yet another Evil Trope.

Ambulance Chaser - The term is an insult as used in real life, and the RL section is plagued by Natter.
[Added 4th Jun '13 at 06:21:53 AM]

What Could Have Been - The trope requires a writer or director, which real life doesn't have.
[Added 7th Jul '13 at 06:18:23 AM]

Villains Blend in Better: Villain trope.

Hysterical Woman - Potential Flame War. Real Life examples were added, but were removed.
[Added 11th Jul '13 at 06:00:10 AM]

Foreign Culture Fetish: The RL section is limited to cultural or country level examples, but the wiki isn't for talking about RL peoples' fetishes.
[Added 29th Jun '13 at 11:27:47 AM]

The Bore - It's not a good idea to call real life people boring.
[Added 20th Jun '13 at 08:25:02 AM]

Unwitting Instigator of Doom - The "doom" part is too subjective.
[Added 20th Jun '13 at 10:09:44 AM]

Stay in the Kitchen - the real life section is being abused as a soapbox for tropers' personal opinions and views.
[Added 14th Jun '13 at 06:11:54 AM]

The Alleged Computer - It's not complaining about computers you don't like.
[Added 20th Jun '13 at 08:26:39 AM]

The Alleged Car - It's not complaining about cars you don't like.
