The Rule of Cautious Editing Judgment exists to prevent tropers from making agenda-based edits or bringing up irrelevant controversial issues, but it's not always obvious if something breaks the rule or not. This thread serves the purposes of:
See also the thread "Trump and ROCEJ" for the specific topic of tropers sneaking their political views (not just views regarding Donald Trump, despite the title) onto the wiki.

Worth noting that despite the title, the "Trump and ROCEJ" thread is about all current political figures, not just Donald Trump.
This thread is linked from the Administrivia page, so we might as well use it.
Does anyone actually care if the pages on Mein Kampf and the like are obviously biased? I came across another work of that type (though by an author with a small amount of actual talent) and the page is quite obviously written from a perspective opposite the work's, to say the least.
EDIT: Sorry, misread the thread title and posted something not related to misuse of Rule of Cautious Editing Judgment.

Should these Harsher in Hindsight examples be removed from YMMV.Ouran High School Host Club?
Kill It with Fire.
Also, I'm afraid that ROCEJ might end up being abused in case of something very, very controversial happened on this site.
Cut the Ouran examples.
If there's a controversy involving this site, we should let it be discussed freely on the forums, but it shouldn't bleed into wiki pages.
Yeah, why would we need to mention it on the actual site, anyway?
It would probably take something on the level of the Google Incidents before an onsite controversy bleeds into the rest of the wiki.
Yes, it's possible that something that big would happen, but if it ever does we can discuss it then.
Could I add this to Translation with an Agenda?
GamerGate is still a thing, but it's calmed down (relatively speaking) to the point where merely mentioning it won't set off a shitstorm.
This is just my opinion, however. Others may think otherwise.
FYI some other flamey examples about Funimation on that page were added and now removed.
This example was added a while ago, then deleted, and re-added (months later, so it's not an Edit War), and deleted again.
I'm not sure if it's possible to make such an example come across as 100% neutral due to the trope name "Translation with an Agenda". Any wording is bound to be interpreted as "Funimation had an anti-GamerGate agenda while translating this work", and "having an agenda" is usually seen as a bad thing when dealing with media that isn't explicitly an Author Tract.

Oof, that's as kosher as eating Bacon during Hannukah.
Burn it to the ground.
Edit: ...Welp, glad I at least saw the post before it was deleted.

I deleted it because I realized this was the wrong thread. I thought this was for actual violations of ROCJ. I don't know where to put it but it needs to be burned. That page might need some cleaning.. I guess I will repost some of it. From WMG.Real Life Someone on the discussion page said that the page had racism in it as well but they didnt provide examples
Edited by MacronNotes on Mar 1st 2020 at 9:53:15 AM
Yeah, that seems like someone trying to start a flame war.
(It's from WMG.Real Life in case anyone else wants to clean it up.)
Tossed them. I dunno if the rest of the page is fine but that stuck put the most
Hey. Just would like to report what I presume to be a violation of this rules on the page The Blockbuster Buster.
The Cinematic Mind has added an entire paragraph of accusations against several individuals on this pages, then kept putting it back three times, including one where a link to the Rule of Cautious Editing Judgement had been put to prevent from doing so and another time when an admin restaured the page to a previous version.
They’re definitely edit-warring, so regardless of content they need dealt with anyway.

I brought it up on ATT, as this was issue that's been going on for a while.
Welp, this is a Big-Lipped Alligator Moment if I ever saw one on the wiki.
I chopped it for being completely out of place.

How well does it match the trope?
