There have been a few exceptions, like Obscure Trivia Lad's first death -
but, importantly, these were almost all deaths and resurrections that
occured as part of the same storyline.

Another category of resurrections I don't mind: Ones where the death was a
stupid shock thing in the first place. (In actual comics, I'll bring up Ice
as a for-instance.) We don't get many of those in the LNH itself, of course
- barring times when an author is ashamed of their previous work and
decides to drop a bus on those characters.
