Because in real life, if someone casually drops something into conversation, you can ask them about it, you know? If you walk into the room and your friend is saying, "And then they made me their chief," you can go, "Hey, back up, who did?" The information is accessible in real life.
If you want to make a troper tales page, go on ahead, but most Real Life sections on main pages are more objective than what most Real Life Whats A Secret Four examples would be.

Why hasn't this trope been renamed yet?

I don't know. I thought it was agreed that this was the worst-named trope here.

I'll put this back up on the forums.

There's too much overlap with Brick Joke here. The point of a secret four is that it's never explained.
TRS discussion that resulted in renaming of What's a Secret Four to Cryptic Background Reference.
