Definitely Agenda Driven.

I'd question the entry's legitimacy as an example in the first place since even the original form reads as "this thing happened, then this other thing with no direct connection also happened".

11th Feb, 2019 11:21:46 AM

Is that a "Yeahhh..." of agreement or a "Yeahhh..." of skepticism or something else?

11th Feb, 2019 11:42:13 AM

^ Agreement. I shoulda been more clear, my bad.

I guess it's verifiable in that the example refers to the #MeToo movement, but it's way too much of a stretch to count since both events do not involve the show itself so much as the creator. I took the liberty to cut the example, bad English and all.

  • The original text:
    • You think itís worse when the series reputation being almost easily damaged by sexual allegations pushed against Page, come by three years later by the late 2017, many (male) celebrity are being accused of sexual harassment, misconduct and allegations from many affected female victims.
  • The modified text ("celebrities" was changed by someone else entirely):
    • You think itís worse when the series reputation being almost easily damaged by sexual allegations pushed against Page, come by three years later by the late 2017, many (mostly male) celebrities are being accused of sexual harassment, misconduct and allegations from many affected victims.

My own point about why it's not an example is that the second half of that doesn't involve the creator. It's just a similar themed thing that happened to occur. Unless it splashed onto him and/or the show, which the entry does not describe, the two things are not directly related.

11th Feb, 2019 06:07:10 PM

Yeah, that's pretty nattery in and of itself.

Not all of the victims were female though; what about Kevin Spacey?

11th Feb, 2019 10:24:32 PM

Does the troper in question have a history of contentious edits? Given Kevin Spacey and also Asia Argento (?), the edit itself is not necessarily bad but if it's part of a pattern.

...Honestly, do we have any sort of cleanup effort for Harsher in Hindsight? Because this kind of discussion - someone removes an example in a suspicious agenda-based way, but the example itself was really tenuous to start with - keeps coming up. I know people have often shoehorned HIH and "Funny Aneurysm" Moment, but I'm starting to wonder if it's even more common than I had thought.

Jaded is actually pretty new, with their edits starting on the 7th. The only other troublesome things they've done are removing an example without reason on OneHitWonder.Rock Music, and adding an uncommented zero context example to Moe.

Out of curiosity, could this be Neoplan Dan 3440 ban evading? He was suspended recently, and the edit history shows that he has previously made edits regarding the same subject on the same page.

And Jaded's edits begin a week after Dan's last edit and just a few hours before their last post in edit banned, in which they cuss out the mods and site.

That does line up with the Ban Evader's typical lack of subtlety.

Jaded Streak isn't banned, and they don't have any IP correlation to banned persons.
