To put it simply ;
* I hate excessive use of outdated memes. But, I honestly still use 'em, but not too much.
* I hate wanna-be trolls.
* Pop-ups who somehow force their way into my window. O:
* I do not mind people's way of typing as long as it doesn't give me a headache trying to read it. O:

Meh, I hate lots of things, internet-wise and RL-wise, but I'd hate to be bitching on this forum topic. So, etcetera etcetera.

Where do I begin. This might be long...

- It's not that people are mistyping a word by accident, it's that most of them do that on purpose just to try and "feel" cool.

- Memes. Enough with the dumb memes.

- Trolls and psychonuts who think they're big time, when they aren't.

- The extremly overused term "noob", said often by people who don't even know what it is or uses it when they can't get their way in online gaming.

- Pop-ups. Especally the ones that try to force their product, movie, etc on you when your trying to read an article!! The forcing their way through, as the last poster said.

- People who can't type some english words and uses a letter instead ('u' instead of 'you') just to "feel" cool.

- Text speak.

- Leet speak....which should die in a fire right now. Anyone that attempts to use it is just making themselves look and feel retarded IMO.

- Anyone talking about their dirty laundry or whatever during an online game where other people they don't even know are listening!! Xbox Live is nortorious for this.

- e-thugs. Seriously, that is cowardice. And half the time they don't even spell!

-....so is getting a bunch of your friends on someone because they said an opinion you didn't like, or some other crap. I've been a victom of this on YouTube, where I said something true about an ex-friend, and then the next day instead of confronting me about it himself, he gets his so-called internet friends to attack me in videos!! And yes, some will even go as far as getting your account suspended.

- People who chat away more than play during an online game. I mean shut the hell up and focus on what is going on. You're standing there getting your ass kicked and yet you're typing or chatting away. Give me a break.

- People who come into an online game party and purposly hold things up.

- Anyone that types like this in message boards:

"yeah I like that game it is the bomb diggity i don't know about you but i will play that every night shut the hell up you don't know nothing even though i cant use punctuations in sentences i am more relevant than you just cuz i am."

- Idiots who don't put up an away message on instant messenging and get mad if you try to talk to them. They also don't go "offline" ether. It annoys the hell out of me when they do that. If you don't want to be disturbed, then put the damn away message up!!

- Music or videos that play whenever you read someone's blog or look at their facebook, etc. That slows down PCs and internet connections, and really distracts the reader.

- People that quit or cheat in online gaming.

- Computer Viruses, Spyware, Trojans, Adware, and such.

Most advertisements, any any time I have to type in words in a box to proove I'm human. The most annoying advertisement ever had these two lesbians in it advertising gay porn. I only like advertisements if they are really, really, good.

- The JEJEMONS, and Wapanese.
- Those people who don't know how to use the right Internet Memes in a current situation. :] (OH YES I KNOW WHAT I JUST DID)
- Trolls.
- Chain letters.
- Too much "........". "..." Would be fine.
- Cyber-Dating. :|
- People who act smart. -_-
- Sarcasm that's not funny. .____.
- Those people who act "different" just to be "unique". >_> Has anyone noticed this? Like when there's a new fad and they say they don't like it, or hate it, but the truth is, they just don't want to try. They want to look "cool" and their "taste" is too good from the common. Well for SOME? :D
- No offense? Pfft.

That's all I can think of right now. 8D;

Also, those damn talking ads that come out of nowhere and scare the shit out of you when your headphones are at full blast:
"Congratulations, you just won a free Ipod Nano."

When moderators act as foul-mouthed conceited trolls.

Bad grammar gets on my nerves and acronyms, especially in sites where there are no character limits.
Trolls and people who call other people newbs/noobs.
People who write with caps on all the time. I feel like they're yelling at me.

No, so I'll go on just to piss you off, jerk.


- This huge deal about "bumping threads". I don't know if this place has some policy on it, but if it does then it's ridiculoius. Wouldn't new people coming to a message board want to look at existing threads , instead of creating a new one on the same subject? Saves time...right? But no, moderators and such have to complain about it.

And I'm not saying all threads should be bumped...just the ones that aren't full of stupity or drama. Those should be locked. But if they are not and are bumped, andthe mods or whoever complains, well that's their fault for being lazy and not closing it.

So yeah that's another internet pet peeve I forgot to mention (just to get under the skin of the last poster).
