Agree, completely.Too many people give their characters an over-the-top dramatic flaw and think it saves them completely. Or too often their "big flaw" is 98% of what makes them a Sue (think Wesley Crusher's attempt to enter Starfleet and failing the test).A Sue is a too-perfect character that is some self-inseretion for the author (or designed to be that for the reader). Being an orphan, or a non-magical person in a magical world, or the only part orc-draenei-human (who's rejected for that, mind you!) in no way saves them.Sue is a case-by-case basis. There are no hard and fast rules. And it bothers some people more than others, etc.
