Unfortunate Implications Citation Discussion

I mentioned this earlier on this page (this is a slow moving thread so it was a while ago). The point of the citation rule is to show that it's not just some random person who's getting offended by something. If the writers themselves acknowledge the issue and apologize, that's a good sign that there is some legitimacy to the example, so it should be OK.

EDIT: So I'm the page topper. By "earlier on this page" I meant the previous page.

Does this entry on YMMV.Unshaved Mouse meet the "more than one person's thought" requirement?

  • One of the biggest criticisms he has with the Ant-Man movies, especially the first one, is that the only non-Caucasian members of the cast are outlandish comic relief who exist mainly to be put in their place by the white main characters.

[up]If I understand this trope correctly, that would be an in-universe example as the page is for a personal blog as The Unshaved Mouse is stating their opinion of the Antman Movie. Thus does it even qualify as YMMV? It's not really something up for debate or interpretation, it's their stated opinion.

In fact, does it even qualify for this trope? As the Unfortunate Implicaitons aren't on the page's work (the blog by the Unshaved Mouse) but on another piece of media (the Antman movie).

But it can't be added to the Antman movie YMMV page because it is a single opinion from a blog, thus would need more credibility.

YMMV.Unshaved Mouse seems to consist mostly of the reviews' own opinions, including some that readers might disagree with.

A lot of those could be moved to the main page as in-universe tropes. I'm sure it's alright to list YMMV tropes on the main page if it's a critic discussing their feelings on a work in-universe.

The entries I think can stay on the YMMV page include:

[up] Actually, Critical Research Failure should be cut, too, since this isn't a matter of basic knowledge.
