Page Action: Shilling The Wesley

Go To

What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

Shilling The Wesley is supposed to be about shilling characters that are reviled by the fanbase (hence the trope's name containing a reference to The Wesley), but it is misused to mean shilling any character, hated or not.

Related: The term "The Wesley" is character-based and is not in common use as we define it. TV Tropes is, in fact, the originator of the term as we use it.
