View Full Version : Things on the internet that annoy you

Hello! I got this idea from another forum I visit, it is a great stress-reliever! Basically, you can just come in here to mention bad habits/behavior or memes that are common on the internet and that just bug the crap out of you.

One rule; if something that bugs you happens HERE, on THIS forum, please don't feel the need to come here right away and post about it. That sort of passive-agressive behavior just leads to hurt feelings and disruption. For that matter, you shouldn't mention users from OTHER forums by name either (famous people are, of course, fair game).

I'll start: People who use the ol' "It's just my opinion, get off my back!" trope to avoid arguments or discussion. I KNOW that it's your opinion - by the world's very nature, 90% of what you SAY is going to be opinion. And most of what I say is opinion too! But If we just leave it at that, then what are we supposed to talk about? And, anyway, if you can't muster up the strength to DEFEND your opinion, you don't deserve to keep it!

I HAD A BIG LONG POST ABOUT THIS CRAP BUT I ACCIDENTALLY DELETED IT SO ABRIDGED

- Memes
- the kids that perpetuate said memes
- random humour
- lets not say trolls, the entire point of trolls is to annoy people so it doesn't need to be said
- constant white knighters annoy the &&&& out of me
- the attitude that being emotionally detatched is super cool
- i can't think
- of anything else
- bye

I can see this potentially getting out of hand at some point, so I guess I'll just chip in and say don't go too far, peoples.

Anyhoo...
People who become famous on the Internet with little to no effort
You know the ones, the people who post up one video/comic/whatever, it becomes viral, next thing you know they're collecting royalties for doing next to absolutely nothing. Even worse is when it's not even their content that's attracting the views. Doesn't help that some people do it willingly these days.
I never thought I'd miss the days of the Numa Numa and the Star Wars kid.

Quite a lot of YouTube Comments
There are occasionally funny lines in YouTube comments, or some simple praise and all that, but the majority I've found are either just random flame wars about nothing, offensive opinions, or "X people are [derogatory comment relating to the video]", the latter of which is based on that little "Like or Dislike" bar thing. It was kinda cute for the first month, after that it just becomes tired and annoying to see it as the top rated comment on every single video ever.

And something that is technically not "on" the internet...

Bringing the Internet into the real world
T-shirts, stuff like that, they're fine. Nothing wrong with saying you like something on the internet.
But when you say things like "lol" in real life, or yell "OWNED"... Urghghghgh.
Also in my opinion hearing "derp" in real life is perhaps the most cringeworthy thing in the world. Same goes for any meme for that matter.
If you ever say "puddipuddipuddi" in real life most people will just think you're having a bloody mental break down.


There's more... Believe me there's more. Buuut I'll hold back on them.

Hum...Rage!List.

People who can't tell between trolls and idiots (http://lol.i.trollyou.com/LOL-I-TROLL-YOU.png) Trolls themselves. Why are you pretending to be an idiot? Idiot! People who think that ten-year olds cannot be mature Ten-year olds who are not mature who think they are People who cannot spell People who think that because I'm half-crippled in a social sense, I am stupid

Let's make a TF2Rage!List, too.

People who can do nothing but spam stickybombs Micspammers who don't care about the quality of their spam People who cannot appreciate the occasional funny sound effect from me after a funny thing happens Hyperactive children with admin powers Having to become serious on a non-serious server

Right now, the only thing I can think of is that I agree with the OP. If you can't be bothered to back up your views, I can't be bothered to accept them. It's even worse, however, when the other person is expecting others to agree with him/her.

well we all know who that view is aimed at now don't we thank you very much

I agree with the whole "bringing memes into the real world" thing from Fellow
every single freshman in my school is like a meme powerhouse, you'll see a herd of them coming down the hall of the school screaming out stuff about 9001, Chuck Norris, Captain Falcon, any general phrases such as "fail" or "pwn" (which is even worse than saying "own" irl I think), DERP, and CD-i Zelda. Then once you get through this herd you find yourself trampled with things that you once forgot were supposed to be funny on the internet. Even my mom tried to say "derp" irl but I tried my best to set her straight and never mention the internet again
it makes me feel like everybody around me is stupid
it's even worse when you hear that 44% of the freshman are flunking the whole grade in my school

- Not enough Mario stuff (yeah, there's the Weegee meme, but it comes from such an awful game it doesn't deserve to be somehow related to the Mario series). At least aside from the Japanese Internet.
- The fact you'll be laughed at, insulted, sometimes banned if you say you like Nintendo or like any Wii game.
- Internet isn't famous enough in real life. At least where I am. Nobody knows a single Internet meme in my school.
- Trolls who you want to punch in the face but who are too far away from where you live.
No need to mention 4chan nor Encyclopedia Dramatica, too. And there's STILL not enough Mario (imo).

I don't really have anything against memes, actually. They're extremely interesting from a sociological standpoint. And I don't really care what you say in real life, even if it is from the internet, though you can sound like a flipping idiot when you say 'derp', 'lol' and 'pwn'd' in real life.

But stuff that does bug me are stuff like Youtube comments, and trolling, naturally. And people who ignore spelling/grammer, mainly because I'm a grammar nazi. I don't mind lack of punctuation for some weird reason though.

- Shipping.

It's just a pet peeve of mine, but I don't like it when I see otherwise sensible text without capitalization or punctuation. Using it deliberately for effect is... possible, but it's not normally the case. If, for instance, someone quoted this post and said "lolwut", but then went on to make a sensible post, I'd laugh. If they did so but then didn't capitalize or punctuate a thing, I'd begin to question either my or their sanity.

As for why I don't like it: when I see proper capitalization and punctuation, I tend to read the sentence just like I would imagine a real person saying it. If it's not capitalized or punctuated, I tend to read it with the same kind of rhythm and flow as the lyrics in this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ozs079hRq8c&t=0m10s) (20 seconds is plenty). That alone makes it hard to understand what someone is trying to say.

EDIT: And site crashes. Site crashes are annoying.

Since I have occasionally come across very interesting sites via ads, I do not block them. However, this does make one vulnerable to a particular blight: ads for dating sites. Since far too many sites that are used often allow them (obviously because they generate many clicks), they are ubiquitous. That wouldn't be much of a problem per se, but for some reason whoever creates these abomination seem to get a kick out of making them as uncanny as possible. What particularly irks me is that whenever I watch metal videos on Youtube, there's a decent chance an ad for alternative dating pops up.

[/villerage]

Another thing that tends to bother me greatly is Jesus Mythicism. It's more of an intellectual issue, one of adhering to the wrong ideology/taking it too far/extremism, so perhaps it is more of a case of "let it be", but I have the bad habit of lashing out at it. More or less the same goes for the conflict thesis here.

I don't mean to bash anyone over this, but seriously? Is there really a demographic of people who enjoy watching random screaming and explosions, filled with over used memes, and words stringed together to form gibberish. Obviously there is, as its so successful. It may just be that I don't get it, but it just doesn't make that much sense to me.

Again, I don't want to bash anyone, but I just don't see the entertainment value in cartoony men, making creepy, nightmares for eternity faces, pulling off painful looking poses, and yelling gibberish. It's just, it feels so wrong.

- Memes
- the kids that perpetuate said memes

yep

other things include:

-the inability to convey emotion through text which makes it difficult to know if what you're saying is being viewed in the way you intend it to be
-people who say that you're wrong if you disagree with them
-people who can't accept constructive criticism
-people named mackenzie hummel

that's all i can think of at the moment

(i'm probably being hypocritical on a couple of these things without realizing it but oh well)

-people named mackenzie hummelSonic, that's a really strange way to spell your name. I thought it was spelled "Ian Naff".

hi Agent Gold I often disregard commas and periods and instead hit the enter key when I'm done saying a sentence
which really is probably not a very good thing but I think it happened when my life kinda crashed about a year ago and then started up again, otherwise I used to have real good grammar and I mean I'm not stupid or anything I just disregard it and type what I think as I think
I've been trying to get out of my habit but it's really difficult when one's talked like this for a good year long period of time.

I dunno why I threw that out there, but uh. Yeah I dunno.

EDIT: huh, it's actually been an exact year since then. Well gee wilikers.

-people who can't accept constructive criticism
;C


Absurd and Over-Used Memes: About everyone should know where this is coming from. A meme is funny the first few times used, but will soon be used way too much and just be an annoyance. Like the Troll Face, for example. Websites like Funnyjunk have nearly every comic with the Troll Face in it. Same goes for the "FUUUU-" guy and variations of him.

Trolls: You saw this coming. I just don't like people who abuse the ability to be anonymous and the freedom to say what they want. I have a friend who's friend actually trolled some one too much that they went suicidal. Being a sensitive person, the simplest insult can get me into a depression...

Abusive Hackers: People abusing their intelligence/equipment just for the gain of "lulz" infuriates me. They couldn't have just gotten a career in something useful, but they prefer to irritate others. I do admit it is funny when people over-react, same with trolling. But I know how it feels to be trolled or hack and just prefer not to make others feel the same way.

Ignorance: Speaking your mind ignorantly can really irritate others, obviously. Some one hating a game just because of its name or something is an example, kinda.

Braggers: I just don't like people who taunt me D:

People who cover their posts in typos. I'm fine with the occasional "hte" or "a apple" or those kinds of things, but it can get bad.
People who don't read OPs.
People who consistently post in the wrong topic when there are clearly marked topics for what they're looking for.

I really dislike ads. Like, You may be trying to listen to some music and some ad pops up like "Congratulations! Blah blah blah" I don't mean the pop up ads that you can block, I mean, the ads that come in the corners of webpages and make noise.

I also have a think with grammar. Not a serious thing, really. I'm bound to have a typo, or maybe a wrong word choice in about every post I make. But I attempted to fix them *cough* (For the most part). But you'd be on the 'net, and a whole bunch of losers would be posting using the worst form of chatspeak, 1337speak (or something), and it's like, Grow up.

I also hate it when people just feel like ranting their opinions without hearing anyone out. I mean, if they are disagreeing with you, the least you can do is see they're point. You don't have to accept it as your own, but don't be a hater.

Oh yeah, and this is sort of unrelated, but I hater the cowardly haters. You know, the ones who hide their Identity and flame you. But they don't have any guts to come out and say it. I don't even bother reading things like that. Haters gonna hate.


Well yah...

Alrighty

- 1337 speak and anyone who uses it. Seriously, since when was it cool to "misspell" (and by misspell I mean "you fail English forever") on purpose?
- Trolls. For obvious reasons. Although I probably don't mind trolling as much as the next guy. (Not severe suicidal trolling, just the regular trying to piss this guy off kind of trolling)
- Memes. Some of them. Saying stuff like Derp, pwnage, and LINK MAI BOI in real life isn't so bad as long as you don't abuse it. In my school the people who know of the existance of memes are the only ones that won't hate for no particular reason. So I really only hate when memes are overused.
- People who rant about how Black Ops is sooooooo much better than my petty Mario games.
- 10 year olds with no brain. When they have a brain I can get along fine with them.
- People who compare you to Hitler when they are losing an arguement

Actually, you've reminded me of another thing that I don't like to see on internet forums (and, once again, this is something many people are guilty of): sarcasm. Posts are made of text and sometimes pictures, but neither of those two things can convey sarcasm unless it is explicitly stated. The only way to denote sarcasm without actually saying that you're being sarcastic is with a particular tone of voice. You don't get voice in posts. Therefore, you should refrain from using sarcasm in posts, because I can guarantee someone will get the wrong idea. That someone is usually me.

The following both annoys me and scares the crap out of me:

When I'm watching a seemingly harmless video on the internet and then suddenly... BOOM BAM BABY! This face that is as scary as all hell appears on the screen and screams an ear-piercing scream that rocks you to your very soul! They really piss me off.
Now when I watch a video on youtube I scroll down so that I can only see the bottom of the video and I move the little bar that changes what second of the movie you start from, so now I can find out the easy way if it's one of the aforementioned type of video.

Awwww, I like memes. Not ALL of them, but I think some of them can be funny.

And while "trolls" is a valid response - I'm annoyed by them too - it's kind of redundant, ain't it? It's like the internet's equivalent of saying "Man, it really annoys me when people come up and punch me in the face for no reason" or "Gawd, don't you just hate people who steal your car?"




-The way that it allows me to waste 5 hours and getting totally nothing none.

Oh yes. I've gotten better about it recently, but there was a time when I could get on at 12 and do absolutely nothing until 6. And not even the "Play a stupid forum game, read an interesting blog" kind of nothing - LITERALLY nothing! Most frustrating.

I mean seriously? Ew! No one wants to hear about how you look at innapropriate pictures on the internet. And if you do, don't go around flaunting that fact. Porn habits should almost never be the subject of conversation on the internet.

-People who sugar coat everything.
If people can't draw to save the life of an innocent bunny, it's probably better to tell them that. Don't act like you like it if you don't. If something's bad, say so. I get improving and getting better, but if you let them believe only a few things are off, no one recieves any benefit.

-People who argue over ships.
The idea of opinions was established forever ago. People can like an write any form of couple they want. Just because you ship a and b doesn't mean anyone who ships b and c is a Nazi. You can argue for different emotional points among other things, one character isn't set to be shipped with another for all eternity. On the subject, people really need to stop whining about slash ships, there's nothing wrong with them!

Like countless others have said before me, I hate it when Internet stuff is brought into real life. It's just annoying. Where I go, most of the people who say those things are Asian and have big glasses and lisps... (I'm not trying to be racist here, OK?)

Just look at the top of my signature... yeah.

People who discriminate against (vidya game) hackers. Most people seem to think that all hackers are losers who love to give others pain and have no life. That's not true at all, that's just another unjustified stereotype. There's a difference (a huge one) between hackers and cheaters.

Hackers that hack unfairly (cheaters)

People who say tl;dr, even when the text wasn't even that long to begin with.

People who discriminate against furries. Not all furries are those creepy magical perverts that everyone seems to think they are. Not all furries are yiffers, there are some clean furries out there as well. Maybe it's a bit of a stretch, but it's like saying that all Catholic priests are pedophiles or all Muslims are terrorists. Both of those are obviously not true. Like for instance, I think that the Mimigas from Cave Story are the most adorable things ever, so technically that makes me a furry, right? (or am I just completely misunderstanding what a furry is?) But I don't look at the Mimigas like... that... *shudders* Eww. I'm not a lesbian or a pedophile, I'm better than that... I'm clean, I guess. Well, at least cleaner than most furries.

And then everyone looked at me oddly and my ears started burning.

...why do I suddenly have that feeling like I just got reported?

Like for instance, I think that the Mimigas from Cave Story are the most adorable things ever, so technically that makes me a furry, right? (or am I just completely misunderstanding what a furry is?)

From what I can gather, to be a furry is technically to have an interest in the design of anthropomorphic animals (i.e. the combination of animal features on a human body). Of course that doesn't really fly since I like the design of Sonic the Hedgehog and the aforementioned Mimigas but I would never call myself a furry. Something I've personally also noticed is that more self-professed Furrys have their own "furry-self", as it were. That might have something to do with it too.
So there might just be varying degrees of it.
Of course there's always the sexual side to it, but that's more of a fetish if anything.

Although one thing relating to furries that does annoy me... How some of them react to the criticism. Well, the sexual furries at least. I've seen some of them act as if they're some sort of race that's being discriminated against, when in all reality, they're just engaged in a fetish that obviously some people will take issue with, as is the case with stuff like S&M. Sure, they have the right to disagree with their opposers, but to act like you've suffered years of repression or something is just plain wrong, really.

that's unfair (maybe i'm doing this to piss gold off on purpose now doop doop)

sometimes people prefer to be who they aren't (okay stopping now). They may have a bad home life, or feel unfulfilled in who they want to be so they go online and try and be someone different. I know I do it, you probably do too; I am nowhere near this outspoken etc. in real life. If you had met me IRL first I would probably be VERY shy.

I've noticed some other subjects other people said that I forgot about/wanted to say.
Furry Haters: I'm kind of a furry and just don't see why people hate all furries when they aren't all bad. I originally role played as a completely furry character, but was afraid of the hate and changed it to become a cat-boy.

Screamers: Those frightening faces that scream at you in random videos to scare you, you've heard of these. I do the same as Benno said, I constantly check the comments of any video I don't trust very much. People viewing videos with me at the same computer get annoyed from me doing this....

Sarcasm: I'm not saying I hate sarcasm, I just don't like it when people think I'm stupid because I didn't understand their sarcasm. I can barely ever tell when something is sarcastic.

Pop-Up Ads: Half of the time when I try to close these dang things, I close my own window. I honestly hate these. I just don't even see the use of them much, either. They don't seem to be too interesting to attract people.

JSG
March 7th, 2011, 07:22 PM
I'll just mention things everyone is saying too, I guess, and adding a little more:

Screamers: So, I was once searching up on YouTube when I was a young lad, browsing through general videos, such as "funny" or "cool" non-gaming videos. So, I found this video, where the thumbnail was a cat, where it was titled "CAT SINGS". I clicked it, and I guess you can figure out what happened by then.

Pop-ups: Yep. Especially if they are "1,000,000th VISITOR!!!". BLASPHEMY.

Seizure Videos: Pretty much the same as screamers, only you can actually get HURT physically in this one.

Internet Stereotyping/Prejudice: Yeah, basically people who judge you to easily. You could have a 12 year-old user come in and everyone will thing he is a total n00b and such, just because he is not "old" enough. Nope. Just don't judge a book by it's cover.

The Internet Itself

People Who Don't Give Credit: I don't mind this, regarding to me, because I just make small userbars. But usually if it ranges from pro art and such and they just claim it as they made it, it ticks me off as to how they get all the credit. Even plagiarizing ideas.

- Trolls.......You know why.
- People who give trolls the reaction the troll wanted......They don't help much.
- Memes that go out of hand......Over 9000 is one of the best examples of this, but thankfully the usage is getting lower making the use of the joke more funny sometimes.
- LOL cats.......Just annoying.......For other people who don't like LOL cats this (http://averagecats.com/) site is funny.
- Web comics that end when it wasn't time to yet.......I wanted to know how it ends or if it does, not have it just stop!
- Internet rage......Yea, why do people have to get SO mad?

-Perverts. (Or at least people who are open about it.)
I mean seriously? Ew! No one wants to hear about how you look at innapropriate pictures on the internet. And if you do, don't go around flaunting that fact. Porn habits should almost never be the subject of conversation on the internet.

I just had to..

As for my list:

- Trolls. See everyone.
- Pointless adds. "YOU JUST WON 99999999 EURO!!!" I mean, seriously. What the hell....?
- Haters. There's really no point to rage so much over a person holding a kitten for 15 seconds...
- Overratings. When a person very proffesion at something, it doesn't mean he/she is directly god. *choughchuggaaconroyfanschough*

And worst of all...

FANBOYS!

These are those people that just ADORE someone and that what they're doing. *points to various Partner LPers*
You can't make a SINGLE statement or joke about them, or you comment box is full of flaming 12 years olds who think they know said person.
Another thing is when people think that, just because they watch all of their videos and/or artwork, they are their friends. Even when the person has never said anything to you. This mostly results into spamming said person on their page with various small comments about nothing. And when you decide to tell them they aren't their frieds, you get tons and tons of flame from a single person. It also seems that most of these people are 1) Not from the same country. 2) Don't care about their spelling. 3) Are younger that 12, or 4) All I just said. I've even seen fanboys who decided to spam said person's page in their own language.... yea...

I'm done for now.

Ugh, if this were an essay in English I'd score 100 right off the bat...

-Usage of memes. They can be funny if they are used right, but we don't need to see "OVA 9000" every time we start a "first" fest. Speaking of which...

-"First" posts. I can handle if someone just throws that in along with a smart-sounding post on the subject, but don't post simply for the sake of saying "first".

-1337 speak. Apparently people use it because they want to prove that they know something others don't. The reality is that you're being an idiot and annoying everyone else that speaks like a normal person.

-...See my signature.

-Grammar Nazis. I fully support good grammar on the internet, but we don't need people pointing out every single little typo people make. That, in my eyes, is just as bad.

Mine would just be
-Stupid Ads: YOU ONE THIS THING FOR FREE!!!! Sure I did but I don't want it.
-Trolls:Some can be funny I suppose but There are some that are annoying.
-I'm not a fan of shipping. It's ok sometimes but not all the time.
-People who correct your grammar. I understand one mistake and they fix it. Not all the time that's just annoying
-People who think there better than you because *insert here*.
-Annoying Noobs nothing to be said but...annoying noobs
That's really mine. I know that the annoying noobs thing kinda it like trolls but still both can get annoying.
EDIT:Irony forgot to space

I just had to..

You don't count. You just seem to go "Well I'm a pervert." You don't really go around saying "VAGINAPENISBOOBSLOL" You just seem to take pervert as a title, not a lifestyle.
What am I typing.

Though I did remember one.

1. People who use gay or retarded as a derogatory term.
You know what, I don't even care if you're joking, this isn't even cute. Gay is someone who is attarcted to people of the same gender. It does not mean bad or effeminate. Not all gay people are extremely girly/extremely masculine, depending on the gender stereotype. You can't take one member of an entire sexuality and say this is the base for them all. The same logic applies to retarded. Retards are people who face actual diagnosed learning disabilities, you're implying that it can just be thrown about as stupid. They can't help their learning dissabilities, they have to accept and face them. These expressions hurt people, it doesn't matter that you're just joking or anything.

/rant mode off.

Being the non-Englishman I am, I once thought retarded was just another word for idiotic or stupid. When I once looked it up in the dictionary for some reason, I believe my heart stopped for a few seconds. Luckily I never used that word outside of a forum infested with other idiots.
So that's the thing that annoys me the most about internet. Me and my terrible, terrible English. I never had decent English at school, so everything I learned came from games like Pokemon. So overall my spelling is slightly decent, but my grammar... I wouldn't be surprised if this post has at least 30 grammatical errors or something.


Screamers: So, I was once searching up on YouTube when I was a young lad, browsing through general videos, such as "funny" or "cool" non-gaming videos. So, I found this video, where the thumbnail was a cat, where it was titled "CAT SINGS". I clicked it, and I guess you can figure out what happened by then.

Always check the comments first. If comments are allowed, you will be warned. If there's no comment section and you don't trust the user who posted the vid, it's probably a screamer. I believe screamers often have a lot of views as well. This should save you from a few heart attacks.

For other things that annoy me....
- Memes. When executed well some of them can be funny, but for each funny use of a meme, there are 4000 others that fail. Except in the case of over 9000, FFFFFUUU guy, seaking, Mudkipz, Chuck Norris and some others. They are never funny.
- Internet talk in real life. I once played a game with a guy who said things like LOL I PWND YOU! I DIDN'T JUST OWN YOU YOU ARE OWNED SO BAD IT'S YOU'RE PWND LOL! all the bloody time. To make it even creepier, I didn't translate that. There wasn't a single living being in the area who was English, and yet he kept talking exactly like that.
- Ridiculous fan theories. Sheik is a boy is the most annoying one I know of. It's never said that anybody in LoZ has the ability to see through clothes, so Sheik is female, just like Zelda. But people keep saying ridiculous things like 'Ruto says he's male' or 'the Manga says otherwise', it's so annoying.

Well, that post is longer then I wanted it to be. I oughta stop now. Maybe post the rest later.

three things:
bad trolls (the ones that try to troll but fail, making people mad instead of laughing.)
hypocrits. (usually tied in with bad trolls)
things that have no quality, yet they are the top rated thing. when was the last time you found a quality piece of music easily? I can't do that until at least the 3rd page of a google search.

Pop ups annoy me so much. I'll just be doing something and I will hear, "you are a winner." Then I will look around the website, until I can't find it, then I see a pop up window flashing; They just annoy me so much. And websites that play songs that I don't like.

Ressurecting this thread to bring up something that's really been bugging me lately - people in political discussion who inisist on making up hee-lariious insulting pun names for the people/things they're discussing, as if this is something people over 9 should be doing. We've been getting an absolute PLAGUE of this in American ever since our president's name was "Obama".

I feel sorry for the people who actually fall for those.

That reminds me. My brother told me that one of his friends had clicked on an ad that said, "Click here and receive a free iPod!" He followed the instructions, submitted his address, answered some questions, made an eBay account, then he waited. A few weeks later, in the mail he found a little mini-figurine of an iPod made out of cardboard.

Probably. But "Obama" is a very punnable name.
