    It's not really. If you say "I'm a DPS", it's like saying "I'm a damage per second". DPS refers to the amount of damage a damagedealer does in a second.

    Inferno is Italian for Hell, according to http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/inferno#English coming from Latin words for "lower regions"

    The more recent "fiery conflagration" comes from depictions of hell being, well, fiery. I don't think Dante's Inferno had much fire at all.

    Well when i was a kid i used to think Autistic and Artistic were the same thing,it wasnt until in my teens i realised the difference.

    I did indeed say many things like *Them "I feel sorry for him he's autistic" *Me "Why? I bet he makes loads of money from his pictures!"

    I didn't, random typos are just easier to forgive :P

    There's some raining fire and rivers of fire, but on the whole? Not too much fire. Lots of awfulness, but not much fire

    That makes the difficulty wording in D3 super cheesy.

    Hell -> Inferno... Wat?

    As I said, action house isn't a random typo, it's something I see on a regular basis.

    Honestly I can't think of a single term or abbreviation that annoys me, I'm also not a grammar nazi like most of the people I meet on the internet tho ^.^

    ok, here we go. I did some research:

    x has been used as a substitute for the term "trans", "cross", etc... for a very long time. It is based off the graphical representation of a cross (i.e. 2 lines crossing). Often times, trans = cross. Example - transatlantic = crossing the atlantic. Even the Los Angeles airport is LAX - which is an abbreviation for Los Angeles Transcontinental airport (predating international airports).

    Now, back to the term xfer. -fer is from the Latin word ferre, which means "to bear" or "to carry". So to carry across from one place to another = transfer. Hence - xfer.

    Now, someone asked about Xmas. X is the first letter of Christ...in Greek. Chi is the first letter, and the upper case Chi is pretty much an X. So X has been used as an abbreviation for Christ for hundreds of years.

    NOTE - This was done doing research on the internet....so take it with a grain of salt :P

    lots of things annoy me. Rouge instead of Rogue. everything being claimed to be OP. PvP claimed to be broken, when it's 90% people unwilling or unable to adapt, or lacking the intelligence to do so. Inscriptionist bugs me. Would of/Would have. Your/You're. Their/There/They're. Jelly. CRZ in its current state. LFM DPS FOR X Y OR Z RAID, LINK ACHEIV AND HAVE ILEVEL 50 LEVELS OVER WHAT IS REQUIRED PLOX! Also, Plox. PST. Mages overcharging for portals. The way people pronounce Auchindoun or Karazhan or Camp Mojache incorrectly. People's hatred of Sylvanas. I could go on for a while, but i won't.
    "You are not prep--" *ROGUE BURNS PREPARATION* "Aw shit."
