* Creator/JamesNicoll indulges in this often when posting reviews. Particularly when reviewing older sci-fi books with tons of ValueDissonance.

Dewicking for cut.
* '''[[SingleIssueWonk Negative Nellie]]''': An online personality found on message boards. Complains constantly about the flaws in a show or book, achieved record time for plot-hole spotting and just will ''not'' let [[ParvumOpus that episode]] [[FanonDiscontinuity that everyone pretends never happened]] be forgotten. Yet strangely enough, these are rarely the members who terrorize the newbies, or the board's resident Rottweiler. They leave that to the resident [[HairTriggerTemper hothead]]. Actually, they're pretty friendly, usually long-standing members whose grumbling is met with amused tolerance by everyone else. Their temper is reserved for their least favourite parts of their favourite show.

This was "six years ago" by 2012 standards. (And Really Bad Voice Acting is a pothole to a SBIH subpage, which is a no-no.)
** The [[ReallyBadVoiceActing voice-acting]] of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' episodes from Season 9 onwards is constantly panned by fans of the old episodes and is definitely the absolute ''biggest'' complaint about the anime now. Fans hated the new voice-acting six years ago and they still hate it now.

** Website/SomethingAwful has interforum rivalry where everything coming from the all purpose forum GBS is hated by the subforums, and everything else is hated by PYF, but the one thing SA loves to hate ''especially'' is FYAD (SomethingAwful's /b/, except even more random, elitist, and vitriolic), where it's not uncommon to have the disparate arguers of a thread team up to wail on the FYAD-er... and, oftentimes, vice versa. 4chan has the same issue. Something Awful has its own negativity brigade in the form of the Something Awful Sycophant Squad, dedicated to mocking the mods and goons. It's a negativity loop!

* Any perfectionist will not see the finished work afterwards because it will make them notice the flaws that still went through, as noted by [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/04/22/ex-metroid-prime-dev-thinks-his-games-suck this interview]] with ''MetroidPrime'' designer Mark Mancini.

* In ''LetsPlay/LetsDrownOut'' Grand Theft Auto', Gabriel stated that he did not trust Yahtzee's ZeroPunctuation reviews due to its cynical nature, which Yahtzee admitted that it was a bit of an exaggeration and stated that he likes Wolfenstein: New Order to prove said statement.

* {{WebVideo/SFDebris}} began by taking potshots at [[Series/StarTrekVoyager the wackiest iteration]] of ''Star Trek'', then gradually expanded to the point where the entire Federation of Planets is portrayed as a third world commie dictatorship. The only competent characters are macho man James T. Kirk and Ben "Don't Fuck With The" Sisko's [[BiggerIsBetterInBed penis.]]

* Things like FanFiction and [[OriginalCharacter Original Characters]] get a ''very'' bad rap. Of course there are amazing examples of both (some of which have gone on to become AscendedFanon or [[CanonImmigrant Canon Immigrants]], it's being [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13095679690A52580100 discussed here]]), but let's be honest. It's a ''lot'' more fun to act like every fan fic is as bad as ''FanFic/MyImmortal'' and every original character is as cringeworthy as ''FanFic/{{Sonichu}}''.
