Anyone genuinely hate TV Tropes
« on: July 20, 2018, 07:49:45 PM »
That one website called TV Tropes, What things on that website that you disagree with them about and not trust them. It's really bad how they use the "Big-Lipped Alligator Moment" for everything. that unfunny joke is an outdated meme from The Nostalgia Chick and The Nostalgia Critic.

What are the things you hate about this website.

It's really addictive. I visit it for one show and suddenly it's an hour later and I'm several pages away having followed tangential links.

Yeah, but a lot of their shit is miscategorized or completely misremembered and understood

Same, it's not always accurate but it is fun to read.

TV Tropes tries to act like everything they say is always right. I don't really trust that website and what they say is not always true. When they say something about a cartoon, movie, comic or anime its only the websites opinion and seen nowhere else.

Nah.  I still visit the site.  It can be fun.  No reason to take it seriously.

Trust them with what?  It's a pop culture site, not a fucking news source.

^^^Same.

Like Uhtceare said, its addictive. Also very helpful on team builds, as they cover genres i’m not overly familiar with.

It's a good place to see what the hivemind of the Internet is currently thinking on a topic.

That said, I lost a lot of respect for the owners/admins when they purged the site of a lot of "controversial" content.
Truten forever!

Like Oats said, they miscategorize things far too often. The amount of things they've completely misunderstood is annoying because a lot of people take it as gospel.

They were weirdly inconsistent about the “controversial” stuff.  They scraped the Caligula page but they kept In The Realm Of The Senses, for instance.
