So if more than one point of view is present, it's Natter, but we don't want edit wars... but no one description of how a trope fits into a work will please everyone, even if the trope is squarely in the work. Maybe with a trope about a visual device, yes, but with more substantive tropes, it's not so clear cut. Any character who's a Jerkass Woobie to one reader is just a Complete Monster to another, and any All-Loving Hero to one reader is just a Smug Super to someone else... it really does a disservice to both the work and the wiki's goals to only show one point of view.

You can give alternate viewpoint without nattering. Just use proper Example Indentation in Trope Lists and focus on writing your own example instead of talking to another. For objective tropes, there's discussion.

I understand why the page was locked, but it really should be "...try to disarm such conflicts..." not "...try and disarm such conflicts..." :)

...did I actually post that? *facepalm*

I guess the real question is, what's it doing on the page? It's pretty random, and the staff don't usually approve of randomness on trope pages.

Honestly, I'm not sure either. I came here looking for that actually. *laughs sheepishly*

But really, almost every other page has an actual quote. There is an alternative "real" quote. Why are we using this one?

Good point, and it's a better one anyway, IMO. I'll ask for a swap.

Most edit wars only get the Real Life sections of articles removed, and prohibiting them from being put back in.

I wonder if it's locked specifically to prevent that.

If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.
