    Internet Pet Peeves :P

    Not to take a "holier than thou" approach, but this really rubs me the wrong way:

    LOL

    Nobody really "laughs" out loud. They should just have L for laugh.

    Totally...there should be a Snopes.com filter built into virus scanners.

    -A national gas fillup day doesnt do anything (in fact, hurts the local owner)
    -No emails can be tracked back to you to get you a certificate to buy Gap jeans or free Vista OS
    -No, thats not a pitcure of (insert latest hurricane here) approaching...its various thunderheads from the plains.
    -I know washington is full of crooks, but the email about all those crimes is not real...


    etc etc etc

    I'm calling for a moratorium on "not so much", "X say hi", "loves me some X" and "threw up in my mouth a little".

    I enjoy LOLCats, but I know they'll have a short shelf-life and I will find them annoying soon enough. In the mean time, I'm enjoying the spin the cartoonist Ape Lad has put on it:

    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Re: Internet Pet Peeves :P

    At some point everything on the internet has bugged me. But what really bugs me is how few really well-written non-fiction BOOKS are being written by very smart folks with a lot of stuff to say. I know I sound like a grandpa, but good lord, is it too much to ask that when writing a work of non-fiction, you make the work about the SUBJECT instead of YOURSELF? Man, that's the worst. I don't care about you; I care about your subject.

    Interesting subjects if you can avoid the constantly-intruding narrator.

    People who loudly and publicly proclaim that they are leaving a website because (insert reason here).
    Ironically, most return (sometimes under a clone) - however, they have achieved their original intent in getting attention.
