And how does she know Satan isn't using him to confuse and dishearten her? Does that sword not cut both ways?

Not to mention that the article uses such an alarmist headline, and then in the article basically says the problem's boundaries are well known and that a workaround exists. Click farming at its worst.

That has the danger that if the "getting a bit intimate during the movie" part didn't go well, the dinner part would either have to be cancelled or be quite awkward.

In other words, I satirize your point of view and you tell me I understood it perfectly.

So, who made you arbiter of what is allowed to be thought in the US?

Ah, I see. The Spanish language equivalent would probably be forocoches.es, which given its name is ostensibly a message board about cars, but the actual car content is about 10% of the site ;).

No, but seriously, what is it? I'm afraid to go there now, and the definition in TVTropes is not very informative (to me at least).
