Writers who only seem to tell stories to get on their particular hobby horse?
Gratuitious gross-out gags?
Gratuitious sex scenes?
Sex scenes that aren't gratuitious enough?
Protagonists who are irritatingly flawed?
Protagonists who are irritatingly perfect?
Weak female characters?
Strong female characters?
Airhead bimbo characters?
Panelists from Chelsea Lately selling sitcom pilots at an alarming rate?
People who use the comment sections on blogs to either shamelessly plug their 50 unsold scripts or state their personal pet peeves as if something that offends them was put there as a direct attack on their values?
