Sometimes people have an ideological axe to grind, and when they grind it in public, sparks can fly.

One person I know is trying to replace 'childless' with 'childfree' in the vernacular, so she starts every other sentence with "Well, I'm childfree, so..."

Another guy is an open-source software advocate, and won't shut up about Richard Stallman.

Depending on where you live and the circles you travel in, the things you hear will vary, but what remains the same is that people react negatively to this axe-grinding when it becomes habitual and predictable, unless they agree with it.
