Did you send them a rudeness notifier?

As it stands. we're already in Edit War territory.

Note that their edit reason when they originally added the example is "Shot fired. Havoc!" For this reason, I do not believe this person is editing in good faith.

It looks as though they expected someone — maybe a fan who cares about this work — to complain about the entry. Their response to Mag Bas's removal seems to support this as the rude edit reason is appealing to the content in the work rather than the mutual exclusivity of these tropes.

Weirdly, this troper has never edited the article for Drow Tales (the work whose entry is being edit warred over).

Edited to Add: Looking at their most recent edit on Woobie.Web Comics, it looks like they are having a bit of Complaining About Shows You Don't Like. Their edit reason including the phrase "in typical Drowtales fashion."

While they're probably going to be suspended for edit warring anyway, the hate-on for Drow Tales seems to be another significant issue.

Permission to zap that example, again?

The mention of the word "misanthrope" like that is very much a rudeness rule-breaker. And that's attached to an Edit War, so this will require a mod.

Go ahead and pull it. Be sure to put the pulled content into discussion.

I've cut the example, noted it was in an Edit War and that it and the rude edit reason led to this query, left a link back to this query, and put the example on the trope's discussion page. I probably will ask in Trope Talk or Is This An Example about it as well.

That guy keeps sending me insults in messages.

I knew of his existence when he started messing around DI Dnapper pages by adding complains as tropes

Guess the suspension needs tightening. Done.
