Is there a standard word for nitpicking plots?
Having been told off very nicely for having pointed out a science flaw in the recent Star Trek movie, I'd like to do a public service and make a little money by offering a button that means "Don't nitpick plots around me"? Is there a zippier way to say it?

How does "DON'T tell me about the plot holes" sound?

twistedchick told me that "meta" is the standard term in fanfic fandom for any discussion that isn't a first level description, but I don't think the word is known in that sense to most of my customers.

"Don't pick plot nits"? or "I don't... "

or "friends don't let friends pick plot nits"?

or "Plot nit pick free zone"

or a circle-slash....

There could be similar ones for fanwank.

I have a zippy way to say it. In fact, I even have a t-shirt that spells it out.

"Your theory about the square-cube law and the density of dragon bones is thoughtful, scientific, and wholly unwelcome."

If you complain about plot holes, I will bury you in one?
