Ok, here's one I thought of I don't think is on the lists --- Ranma being able to "control" the curse....but it's not considered a cure. If he can control it (especially if there's no water trigger any more which is usually the case), then it's hardly a curse any more, and can only be considered a positive thing.

(I don't have any problem with the author going in that direction, more the mentality of it)

Another one came to mind reading a story today: Jusenkyou imparts the spirit of the drowned victim into the victim. Often this makes no sense considering the amount of victims the Springs have had, or its used to justify rapid Ranma embracing femininity, or some other usually flimsy plot device. There are very few stories that do it well...and even then it's a very disquieting notion and likely better left on the drawing board in my opinion.

While not a huge fan of it myself, I can see some arguements to support it.

It would not stop me from reading the story. BUT, that does not mean the story is good... An example of this would be one I came across long ago that had *all* the ranma characters take on the drowned spirits of the Slayers cast... Bleagh...

You know none of this is saying something is wrong. Its just asking what you don't care for. Well I know a related one was in a prior poll but what is with all the stories where the only thing Ranma gets hit with, by Akane, is a mallet. I can only think of maybe 2 times where Akane even has a mallet in hand in the comic. Most of the time its a Boken, shinai or her bare hand. If not some weapon of opportunity like the table, garden lantern, big rocks, Bricks, etc.

Were I Ranma... I'd be far more concerned with the 'getting hit' part, not so much the getting hit with 'what' part...

Yeah but Ranma has been hit with a wash tub full of water more often than Akane has had a mallet. Or bath house bucket. Or even Soap!
