    Mine are just about GD:
    1.you're during a hot discussion with someone and your favorite thread's suddenly closed!because someone doesn't care the rules of PF.
    2.Some super mentors are off even when they're on!
    3.there is no serious subject for some members like myself and there is no funny subject fr some people,too.
    4.most of replies to a thread are unrelative to the original post.
    5.we don't have some of our favorite smilies!
    6. multi user smily :tongue2: !the ugliest smily as a cool :cool: !
    7.some people have no pet peeve!
    8.the lack of my favorite members! :wink:
    9.too long usernames!
    (10.misspelling some words like coz/cos as because!)

    what I mentioned,makes here wonderful! :wink:

    I think my only pet peeve on just about any forum is when I find a thread where someone got out of control and whom I'd like to give a piece of my mind but I find it's already been locked. :devil:
    I'm sure it's better that way though lol.

    Worse for me is when I read all the way through a bunch of long replies and don't realize it's locked until I go to post a reply. Those light red lines on the green beakers just don't catch my attention (and I still haven't figured out why sometimes locked threads have that icon, and sometimes they have a padlock on them...I prefer the padlocks, I don't miss those).

    Oh, BTW, Lisa!, anyone who is a contributor can wander around in what I call stealth mode (be invisible)...that's where the little green light stays off even when you're online. It's fun sneaking up on people. :biggrin:

    maybe its just me... but i don't like when people post a ton, its annoying, and it makes less frequent posters seem... i duno... even less frequent... i even try to refrain from posting too much, because i also can't stand hypocrites...

    Sorry, I'll try to avoid annoying you. :biggrin: If it's any consolation, those of us who post a lot can do so because we live otherwise boring lives. :frown:

    hehehe, ok, well, having tons of posts isn't always terrible. mostly its tons of completely useless, senseless, or otherwise annoying posts... you know? like, people who just post for the sake of posting...

    sides, posts from interferring aunts don't annoy me anyways... you just get so used to ignoring them... "yes auntie... ok.... mhmmm..."

    I have the same problem. I sit here at work with little to do aside from talking to people here or on other sites.
    I'll try to refrain from posting too much Gale. I don't think I do really though I know I tend to post more than you do.

    arrrrg, ok, you know what else is annoying?? people thinking that they're the ones who post too much... when really, the people i'm thinking of in particular, will probably never get the hint!

    LOL!! sorry... :redface:
     
  12. Jul 5, 2005 #11

    If you're gonna try to make me walk a plank for that one then you'd better be ready for fight lass. :devil:

    #people who write alot in a single post!(honestly I usually don't read them!) :grumpy: :grumpy: :grumpy:
    #impolite members who say "shut up,stupid..." :wink: but of course these 2 examples are their most polite words!(for sure they say how high-strung she is! :grumpy: )
    #people who are so knowledgable about everything and of course opinionated
    about their ideas! :devil:
    #people who force me to stay here for a long time :wink:
    #people with ugly avatar
    #people who always want to say the last word in every conversation even if their last words would be "you're right" or "thanks"!
    the most important one#people who misunderstand you!





    You're so generous!you've given half of your photo to the monkey and you even want to give a piece of your mind to the threads.most of threads really need it because there is no thought in the subject,replies...(3 and 4 :biggrin: )

    Unconventional spelling and punctuation makes reading posts more difficult for me. That's the only pet peeve that I can think of- and it's not even a serious one. People making unsupported claims, i.e. passing off their 'mere' opinions or beliefs as undisputed facts, really bothers me, but that's much more than just a pet peeve.
