Buttercup_

when people type things like this
"prolly"
"I dunno"
"dat"
ect

and when people ask a question like "is it wierd that I'm really good at chemistry"
it's obvious they think their amazing and they want other people to praise them for it, oh! and when desperate girls answer questions from guys their age and are like "I'm blah blah age too and looking for the right guy to come along...a guy like you, but oh well" UGH!! it's annoying and idiotic

Me, too! I do a lot of debating on forums and copy-and-paste answers I think I might want to use again into Word documents. There have been a couple of times I spent a fair amount of time composing what I felt was an copy-and-paste worthy answer only to have the question deleted before I could save it. Grrr!

It annoys me when kids ask questions that are obviously their homework questions word for word. If they can take the time to type it into Ask.com, they can take that time research it online and maybe learn something in the process. I think it's laziness.

I know exactly what you mean.
I actually had one last week where I posted links so they could get the correct info regarding some plants. After 6 days the piss-ant has the nerve to comment: I don't want no links just give me the names I need them now.
Report as
Yeah, there was a similar one which not only wanted the homework information, but had the nerve to "tell" us the answer needed to be two pages in length and that s/he needed it in one day.
Report as
I had one where the charming person wanted a two-sided brochure done by that night. Ugh!
Report as
The guidelines actually say that you can't copy out your homework word for word, you can ask for guidance but not make us do it for you; so if you see that you can report it as Community Guidelines and hopefully get it removed.

When someone answers a question by copying and pasting the answer from a Google search without citing the source, First, that's plagiarism. Second, the person who asked the question can most likely accomplish that. They usually answer with the first entry, which is usually expanded, hence, it can be read without clicking a link.

Questions like "Does he like me", "Am I pretty" "What is he thinking".."How should I do my hair", "What should I wear to school tomorrow",.....UGH! Really??? Or, I hate it when I see somebody copy word for word somebody elses answer, and they obviously did it. I have seen people write one answer, and then "edit" it, only to come back with an answer that was answered 10 minutes before theirs. If you don't know, skip the question.......

I really hate the "does he like me?" Questions. Isn't it not allowed by the guidelines. I hate the people who actively try to shove there beliefs down you throat, but my biggest pet peeve is the trollers. When some one asks a genuine question like "could my ankle be sprained" and someone answers with something like "you have a flesh eating disease that will kill you if you don't do something right away. I suggest you amputate you leg right now" really?!? People like this are just idiots.

Anything god related, especially when everyone depends on "god" for everything in life...like use common sence and be the creator of your own destiny! Don't blame all of your problems on somebody that may not even exist...Evolution, Science, and proper thinking makes more sence to me other than some magical bearded dude in the clouds judging our actions all the time! If you do good in life, life will do good for you, if you do bad in life, the same will come back on you, it's just Karma! Live YOUR life according to YOU and stop being fearful of some so called omnipotent being from thousands of years ago saying, "Don't do that, or I'll F***ing spank you!!" That's a horrible way to live in my opinion!

Since half of my avatar is wearing horns (and the other half a halo) I'm gonna play Devil's advocate and say that very little about this site ticks me off.

Sioux Bee Honey has picked one that's annoying -- people who never respond to help given. It'd be nice to know if our effort was useful but, regrettably, bad manners are a part of modern living.

The extreme fundamentalists are hard to take, too, but they wouldn't like my answers, either, so one cancels the other out.

I guess if we can accept that we're all different, most of our peeves are a bit pointless.

Considering how diverse a group we are, I think we get along remarkably well but that is a tribute to those Jiminy Crickets of the cybersphere, the Mods, who do a remarkable job of keeping us all civilized.

Mods? Hmm. Pet peeves? Hmmm...

1. When someone asks a question which should easily be answered by anyone with a fourth grade education. Like "Are Muslims real?" or "Where did the water go after your hair is dry?"

2. Not just poor grammar, but a complete lack of punctuation, capitalization, and spelling by someone whose mother tongue is English. I will never know if they have something important to say if I can't make sense out of it.

3. Asking a question which is obviously fishing for compliments.

4. Bothering to answer a question with, "I don't know."

5. People who think debating or challenging an expressed viewpoint is the same as arguing and being hateful and disrespectful. It's a public forum. Expect to defend your viewpoint.
