    I love tvtropes. I heard about it on here sometime late last year. Now after I watch any tv show or movie I check if it has a tv trope page

    I do that all the time. And I always end up with multiple tabs open on that site.

    Their forums, due to their moderation policy of "no criticism, ever," have become kind of a safe haven for neo-nazis and pedophiles. And worse than that, really bad advice in their creative writing threads due to a lack of constructive criticism.

    Well, the website's mission statement is to be a tool for aspiring writers, so it is kind of a big strike against them.

    But joking aside, seriously, their forums are a wretched hive of scum and villainy.

    Also it kind of bugs the crap out of me when people quote their articles in real life.

    I don't ever use their forums, so you've actually given me good reasons to never go to their forums.

    Don't know about the forums, but the main site is fantastic.

    I've read some movie threads on their forum and I've never seen neo-nazis or pedophiles. Admittedly, I haven't gone there in some time.

    See, Manic, The Question just used the Arson, Murder and Jaywalking trope.

    Completely missing the point was also averted (or subverted).

    Yeah, you see, this kind of thing actually bugs me, when I'm talking about something and nearly everything is broken down into TVTropes article tittles.

    Also, white supremacy and sexual abuse of children aside, their community is just kind of... weird.
