"Increasingly Common"

I'm finding it increasingly common that "increasingly common" is an example of this. Of course when it ceases to be "increasingly common"... I'm bringing it up here instead of a massive purge folks may decide to revert.

Some examples I found: below is PAGE:Example from page

  • School Study Media: "Anthem and other Ayn Rand books are becoming increasingly common in the U.S."
  • Wuxia:"Kung-Fu Sonic Boom: introduced in the late 90s, this effect is increasingly common in recent series."
  • LARP:"The inter-nordic "Meating Point" or "Node" convention in particular strive to advance LARP as a medium in many ways, and serious academical papers on LARP is becoming an increasingly common phenomenon.""
  • Power Metal:"It has become increasingly common for modern power metal vocalists to employ gruff, throaty vocals similar to thrash or, as with some bands, Harsh Vocals."

Sounds like a legit gripe to me. I'll add it to the page description.

I think it's also a marker of weak or general examples.

Added a ""...came out X years ago...", some Tropers say things like this, but as Time Marches On the number of years ago changes, too.

Or, even worse, examples that use future tense to refer to things that have already happened.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
