This page is full of general examples, aversions (in a trope that shouldn't have aversions) and cases of fansubbers being "purists"/dumbasses and complaining when something is changed.

It's also filled with the crap that was on Spell My Name with an "S" before we cleaned up all the misuse.

I've trimmed down the first entry to include only instances of untranslated words, and removed the unnecessarily negatively-charged phrasing.
