For me, it's not running up the score on it's own that's a problem. It's how the superior team handles it.

As a goalie, I hate it when decent players celebrate like it's the Stanley Cup final after they've had 10 minutes to dally around in front of me, or were the backdoor player on a 3 on 0. And it makes it 10-0. This one skilled, sand-bagging woman I used to play against used to scream and throw her arms in the air every time she scored in beginner house league. Yeah, get a grip lady.

I play with a mixed bag of players, and I can appreciate if a more beginner sort scores their first goal due to my team's ineptitude and wants to celebrate, though.

It's also annoying, mind you, when the superior team makes an obvious display out of "not trying". Just play an honest game, don't showboat, and hope the next one is closer.
