I've seen this several times lately, which is why I have to rail on it a bit now, but it really isn't aimed at any one fandom or author, as I'm sure most of us can testify. 

Yes, I realize that not everything a character says is indicative of the writer's feelings.  I'd go so far as to say that most things they say aren't.  However, when you randomly have a character ranting about something that's almost completely removed from their daily existence but far more present in yours*, it does kind of seem like you're putting your thoughts in their mouths.  Also, derailing the story.  I know it's usually pretty petty and not a hugely offensive or anything, but it's still annoying. 

*I remember a Fullmetal Alchemist fic I once read, for example, where Edward Elric starts in on romance novel tropes for no adequately explained reason.
