What is your internet Pet Peeve?

What is your internet Pet Peeve? What drives you up the wall, makes your eyes cross and just want to punch the screen?


Mine is type that is in all caps, font color that's unreadable, every first letter capitalized, large walls of text with no white space, and text that contains texting shorthand and follows no attempt of spelling.

  • Really really long articles. I'm all about learning new information, but PARAPHRASE, people! If the person can't type, I don't pay any attention to it. People who substitute numbers for letters is super-annoying, and if you don't know your homophones, then look it up! "I new that the bill was do soon"...when you meant "I KNEW that the bill was DUE soon!" AAAAGGHHH!!! I have tons more, but those make me want to tell people to go back to english class.

  • I agree with pp re: the poor spelling and grammar. Typing in all caps doesn't bother me as much, but when I have to strain to try to figure out what you are saying I tend to not take what the poster is saying very seriously. I don't understand how some people can function with those skills.
