Have any of you guys met with this issue out in the wilds? How do you deal with it when it shows up at your table?
I haven't seen this in the wild, and almost all the talk about it I've heard seems to be third-hand stuff which is "I read a guy on a board saying that this happened to a guy!", rather than first-hand stuff like "this happened to me".
Only one person in my group watches CR-type stuff much, and he actually said he didn't like CR because it's "too serious". I will say his RP and character-design choices seem to have improved since he started watching them, though. I think the worst thing he's ever done related to that was a mild backhanded compliment about some aspect of my DMing as compared to some show, which just made me roll my eyes.
