    Internet fads that annoy you.

    I'm talking about all the crap like MLP and the obsession with cats.

    For me:
    Nice guys finish last and all crap related. All the stupid meme pictures like "Reasons why I don't have a GF" the major being "Because I'm nice"
    MLP; self explanatory.
    The masses suddenly addressing themselves as introlovents.
    The majority of memes.
    A new fancy word being used somewhere major and suddenly everyone uses that word anywhere they can.
    And much, much more that I can't think of right now.

    those e-card things. Funny at first, ridiculously overused.

    I hate when people take to the internet to tell us what they hate. Yeah, that's right, I hate myself as well.

    ...you must be pretty young if you believe that's an internet thing.

    That's been an ongoing social debate LOOOOONG before there was even an internet. :P

    9gag. People linking and talking about trends months after the spark died out.

    I understand that, but I mean its popularity on the internet over the last few years.

    The "deep" messages people like to put on Facebook and other social shit, they always come out, for me, as shallow people just trying to sound profound and wise or whatever the fuck. Also hate the same but in the romantic variant, that's what really annoys me. Can't stand internet philosophers.

    As for the subject?

    For me the internet annoyances aren't many, but here's a few:

    Seeing the words "Google is hard", "Just Google it", or "Stop being lazy and learn2google!" on a forum when a question is asked... seeing that... written on a FORUM! A place DESIGNED for creating a community based around mutual interests and communication of said interests! >_<

    Calling somebody "Brah"... so glad that one seemed to have mostly died out...

    Ad-Hominem attacks, particularly ones like "Have you created a multi-million dollar company? Then your opinion is worthless!"

    Somebody posting insane political rhetoric, weither on Facebook or Forums.
    "Tell them only that the Lich King is dead... and that World of Warcraft... died with him..."

    Most of them are just a mild annoyance, nothing that really sets me off.
    But I find the gameplay videos where the guy/girl talks 100% of the time and sounds like some sort of idiot, annoying. They manage to dig up some pretty odd indiegames then somehow turn it into a small time fad itself. o_O

    The /10char thing at the end of a post as well as including the posters name at the end of every post.... Not like I can't see your avatar ehh?

    The trolling and troll baiting in forums.

    Brand bashing (this is mostly in the hardware section of things.) It gets annoying listening to people brand bash something then calling it junk just because it may have fell a few points in a bench mark. (Also funny how quickly it turns into a flame war.)

    FaceBook posts where someone (usually female) says something about "having hard times" then
    replies back to anyone trying to help,"I don't wana talk about it."

    The whole mustache thing has begun to annoy me to some degree. I know it started out as awareness for prostate cancer but... now it's just annoying and overused. I doubt many people know exactly what it really meant at first.

    Ecards. So overused that they annoy me on sight.

    People that are just now discovering memes and feel the need to spam every social site with them.

    Twitter.

    This might offend people, but... I've never seen a single episode of Doctor Who, I have no opinion on the show because I don't know anything about it, I'd love to start watching it one day because I hear great things, but...I hate that the Geek section of Pinterest is chock full of Doctor Who references and what not. Pinterest needs a filter.cao I can filter out Doctor Who, Ecards, Grumpy Cat (love him but I'm tired of seeing the same two kitty faces everywhere), and other stuff regarding tv series I've yet to see.

    on that note nation bashing threads really are annoying.
    also those lame # things at twitter. now i see people using them in place of speech....that is truly truly sad.

    Nah - it's because us geeks who grew up in the 80s now can get together and talk about it. Times have changed for the younger generation - I'm SOOOO envious of you all! :P

    To think that today there's an age where you can be a fan of Doctor Who AND Anime at the same time and be considered COOL. Back in the 80s when I was a fan of both, I got shunned by the majority and was considered weird, nerdy and - above all - VERY unattractive and UN-COOL...
