Most Annoying Things About The Internet

The Internet is one amazing thing, but just because something's amazing doesn't necessarily make it good. This list was made to show some of the dumbest or most annoying things about the thing you're using right now, the Internet.

The Top Ten

1 Viruses

How to not get (most) viruses:
1) Don't download things illegally 2) Don't click shady ads 3) Don't visit suspicious websites 4) Don't plug in random USB drivers you happen to find. But even then, you may end up getting a virus from something, if you're unfortunate enough.

Yes I guess pop-ups are annoying, but when a virus has crippled your computer to the point where pop-ups can are the least of your worries, I think the virus is the one true annoyance when surfing the internet.

Yep, that's far worse than a pop-up. Viruses can be dangerous, whereas a pop-up is only annoying. A virus can destroy your computer and give all your passwords away, a pop-up can be closed with only one click!

It all depends on how severe a virus is. But generally speaking, most computer viruses are designed to use excessive amounts of memory, invade the privacy of others and steal identity.

We just want to download something but a stupid virus comes along and ruins it for no reason!

Just make sure you are on a safe website and that the file you're downloading is legit.

2 Pop-ups

If I see one more paper clip come up and ask me "i see you're trying to get the sex tape of your teacher in school, can I help? ".. well I lost my Train of thought but there still annoying.

Why isn't this number 1? Sometimes those fake virus scams pop up MULTIPLE TIMES and I CAN"T EVEN CLOSE THEM AT ALL unless I force my computer to restart...and also whenever my parents see them, they automatically think it's a real virus and freaks out!

Worse than these are those pop under ads. You get a sudden surprise when you close your browser window.

do they want me to join thier cult?

3 Porn

Porn is sinful, and garbage. I hate porn with a burning passion and I wish porn was banned globally. I'm a boy by the way.

Horrible. You're just surfing Google Images for a pic and a naked girl shows up. A great use for the back button!

Let's say Gardevoir wanted to look herself up: Gardevoir:... Why did I ever look myself up? *scared for life*

Ha, more like the best thing about the internet.

(It's a joke don't get mad. Although I do wholly believe that porn is great for people who are not kids as long as it doesn't become a problem or addiction in their lives.)

4 Advertising

Stupid people who invented ADVERTISING. What is the point anyway? Its just annoying and interrupting. WHO WANTS THEM ANYWAY? ADVERTISING IS HOPELESS IF THIS IS 4TH ON THE LIST!

Your playing web game, and suddenly a pop up ad blocks your game. This is annoying, especially when your playing an online racing game. An ad comes out of nowhere and completely covers your game. So you need to slow down because you can't see where your going and you don't want to hit anything. They also slow down your computer and your game. I hate those waiting ads. On most websites, you need to wait half a minute for the video ad to end just to play your game. I had to sit through a makeup ad just to play a racing game. What the hell! To make matters worst, the web game doesn't even load during the ad!

Ads are so annoying, same on youtube and stuff, And on mobile video games

99.5% of ads are ones we don't care about/ have seen millions of times. And even if I see one I DO think is interesting, still I just wanna see the video/ play my game.

5 Trolls

just a bunch of virgins with no life

There is nothing wrong with being virgin. You don't need to worry about HIV if you are virgin!

On January 18, 2015, when my YouTube channel was in its infancy, a troll disliked every single one of my recent videos. I had a whole temper tantrum after discovering the dislikes.

A lot of them should get hit in the head with a shovel

Ignore these people.

6 Fanbases

Fan bases. Annoying ones like brownies.

At my school there are kindergarten kids who hang around older kids and they think they are so "swag" because they like minecraft idiots

Pseudo adventure time fans of course:those people behave like (beep) s to my cutie pie marceline. I had the guts to name a couple of them and some pseudofanworks in "most annoying fan bases"(the comment "it's my favourite animated series etc." is mine). So my "dear" pseudofans, I want to tell you one thing:take a backward step, and just for once in your life... Feel ashamed

The Fortnite fanbase is a good example of bad fanbases

7 People can't spell/use proper grammar.

The best thing to do in any chat room is when someone gets made at you, point out all the spelling mistakes they made. They'll keep raging, making horrible spelling mistakes which you keep pointing out, etc.! It may seem annoying at first, but trust me, it's hilarious!

ASL has to be the most annoying and overused acronym ever on the internet. Whichever chatroom you're in there seems no escape from it. Can't people learn to actually have a conversation instead of asking this all the time?

I don't have a problem when people use abbreviations, and to some extent I'm okay when people don't use punctuation, but some posts/comments are so ridiculous it's hard to take them seriously. Like on TTT you'll see a long-winded comment with absolutely NO way of telling where the sentences start or end so you have no idea what they're talking about. And other people make you wonder if they passed 1st grade english...

It's really funny when such people expect you to take them seriously or be offended by their "insults".

8 Server Errors

Only 77?! Fake end of the world videos are annoying but not more than server errors! Come on, I got a server error on the Minecraft Forum just yesterday and every time I closed my eyes for the rest of the day I would see it again. I was that annoyed that they just happened to be down at the right time for me to see the error, complete with the same old uninformative 500 code. Add an uninformative code that you've seen 100 times to an error message and it becomes unbearable.

All of my favorite websites get this error anytime I want to do something. ALL OF THEM. HOW DO THEY HAPPEN AND HOW COME I CAN'T FIX IT?

This happens to me every time I'm in the middle of multiplayer mode in a game, and I said I hated the internet connection on my Kindle because of that.

Sometimes TheTopTens has server errors. It's annoying.

9 Anonymous/Internet Tough Guy

I really really hate these guys

Looking at you jidf

retards

10 Surveys

Picture this you're listening to music on Pandora and all of a sudden it stops, and then you see where it went and all of a sudden you are on this survey page yet you never even touched anything. Whoever redirects me to the survey page needs to die. Honestly, I wish I hadn't said that, but I've been driven to the limit enough times already. It's a scam anyways.

Someone on this website sent me a porn survey 😑

I mean, this is obviously bad.

Guy: "*reads* download online cool game! " Yay! *clicks*

Internet: Please do this survey to download.

Guy: NO

The Newcomers

? Being in Small Fandoms

The Contenders

11 Error 404 : Not Found

It's even more annoying when the internet bar is filled and it still says, "no internet connection". But this isn't a reason to hate the internet. Nobody can really control it.

What? What do you mean NOT FOUND? Where's the help link? Nobody's explained this to me! Anybody? Ugh...stupid errors...

Aka, my life

12 Parental Controls

Parental controls in schools are the WORST! Anaconda by Nicki Minaj is allowed in our school computer's YouTube, but Peace Sells by Megadeth is NOT!

This just annoys me. When I want to go on a cool website. It just blocks me. If you're a parent that does this to there son. Just stop

Its annoying absolutely, but it at least has a purpose. No parent would want to treat their young ones with bad material from the internet, especially under 5s. The thing that makes it annoying is that some parents are way too depending on parental controls, so they might end up blocking access to a majority of anything!

My school will block any fun website. They think that kids can't have fun anymore. Some tech people are just jerks!

13 Slow Loading

Slow loading due to linking to advertising may not be worse than viruses or child predators, but it's pretty bad.

Ugh I hate it! >:(
1. It's a waste of time
2. I hate the stupid loading circle

14 Cyber-Bullies

I bet these cowards would be too scared to come out from behind their computer screens and say cruel things to someone's face.

Somebody said something rude about my drawings on another website one day.

Bullying is NEVER the answer!

People cyber bully you if you are a labour (UK) liberal (USA), a feminist, like stuff from a couple of years ago Twilight Saga, like topless men but are fine with boobs big ones, if you say My Little Pony is for girls, enjoy mainstream pop music 90s, 00s, nowadays, watch reality T.V. of talent shows, don't spell/use grammar properly. That is enough.

15 Jake Paulers

Consists mostly of preteen girls.

16 Lies

yeah I hate it when people spread lies about others, set them up, and make them look bad, it makes me feel so sick, really sick, thats like real pain,,,, horrible just horrible, for a example, people bashing other religions and making stuff up about it!

It's a shame that Wikipedia tends to be editable by anyone. I wonder if the facts I got weren't really facts? I know it's moderated and all, but you never know.

Lies make people dumb anyway.

17 Biased People

Biased people drive me insane.

You know, those people who are all like
"MLP IS THE BEST SHOW EVER AND SHOWS LIKE LOST, X FILES, OR BREAKING BAD ARE TERRIBLE AND ARE JUST COPIES OF MLP"
You get it by now.

18 People who hate on something without even trying it or watching it

I hated Jake Paul strongly before I watched any of his videos. My instinct was correct.

Seriously close-minded people.

This is why you should never judge a book by it's cover.

This website also has it's fair share of such people.

19 People who use autism as an insult

I'm autistic (ASD), and it hurts me how ignorant people are about autism. Usually, people use this to describe something cringey or stupid, when most of us autistics are actually really talented and smart. They used to use the word "retarded", which is quite insulting, but they decided to use another disability group to disrespect. Autism can be such a struggle, but people choose to insult us, comparing us to all sorts. People need to become more aware of disabilities in general, physical or mental. If you're someone who insults autism, take a moment to imagine how hard not being able to socialise might be, how hard controlling your emotions can be, how hard dealing with blaring sounds and extremely bright light could be. And imagine if someone was joking about you and making fun of you for that. How would you feel? You wouldn't want people to laugh if you were crying, would you? So why would you do that to us? Sorry if that got heated, I just needed to get my point across. Thank you.

What's even worse is that there is the autism challenge on Tik Tok which is where people make fun of people who have autism and it's very cruel.

I hate when people do this. Making fun of someone for having autism is just cruel, and not funny at all. I have lots of respect for people with autism, and I would NEVER make fun of them. Treat them how you'd like to be treated

We should be helping autistic people, not insult them.

I actually am autistic. The fact that people use this so often while I have to watch sometimes (for example, online games), just makes me want to break my computer sometimes.

20 Screamers

I hate these. Once, I was watching a World of Warcraft video on YouTube, and at the time, YouTube recently updated their site with the inclusion of Google Plus, and at this time, you could post literally anything in the comments section. I clicked on a very convincing yet deceiving link supposedly about World of Warcraft's next expansion. Instead, I was abruptly greeted with flashing lights, an ear raping scream, and Jeff the Killer's face blairing on my screen. Screw screamers.

Screamers can cause seizures, paranoia, fear, shock, etc. They're not fun to experience.

People call these "jokes" or "pranks", but what if I get seizures from flashing lights? Screams? HE-LLO, people! A lot of us have phobias and health problems with loud noises and flashing lights.

Heart attacks from scary faces and seizure attacks from flashing lights like in porygon episode of pokemon.

21 Memes

There are good memes, and there are bad memes. Why has god abandoned us?

Memes are so annoying, especially the dead ones. And they can also be racist and offensive.

Agreed, dumb memes suck. Funny memes are great.

Memes have become such an internet norm that they suck now.

22 Nostalgiatards

I listen to a lot of old music, but there are also new songs and artists I like. It's so annoying when you're just listening to an older song and you decide to scroll through the comments and cancer just hits your face. "I was born in the wrong generation", "Music today is trash", "the 60's were so much better", "I'm only 13 and I like The Who". It's so cringe and annoying. The fact that you like older things that your parents or grandparents like doesn't make you more intelligent or a better person. I wish they could all be transported to the middle ages and burn for being witches. Literally the only good things that come from them is that its fun hating them and you can also make ironic comments like "I'm only 2 minutes old and I enjoy listening to the silence before the big bang".

They suck. But there is this one user who keeps on complaining about nostalgiatards because of hating the new stuff while not recognizing the fact that old stuff could be better than the new ones in many aspects. As an old saying goes, "The classics can rival the new ones." Of course people who are the opposite of nostalgiatards would say that the saying I stated was "old".

Anyway, both people who either complain about the new stuff and the ones who are narrow-minded towards knowing about how the old things are better are equally annoying.

These are the same kinds of people who prefer dial-up to wireless, if I'm not mistaken.

The 90's were so great. I'm such a 90's kid. (Even though I was born in 2004.)

23 Fan art

There are some good, but mostly are bad. Search for Zelda fanart to see a bad fanart. I never saw more than 1 good fanart. The good was about Luigi from mario bros in THIS website.

Sometimes you'll have really good and creative fan art that makes you want to give up drawing altogether. Oh, and then there's the really confusing and dumb fan art that makes you either cringe, hurl, or both. Frankly, I'd prefer the first one.

Fan art takes over the internet, and quite frankly, I'm really tired of seeing it.

Even though there are many questionable/bad/disgusting fan art, I don't think that fan art in general deserves to be in this list. Why? Because not all fan art are bad. In fact, there are a lot of amazing art out there based on T.V. shows, movies, video games, etc. I would only agree to this IF all fan art are bad, but, hey, that's not true!

24 Getting banned

I'm banned on scratch for no reason and my username is abualrob

Being banned is your own fault

Some people even get banned for no reason.

I've once had a toonzone account with a different username but it had my main email. When I looged into my Banned Toonzone account (which was Mordecailovesrigby) I was completely unable to do anything. every time I tried to contact the help desk or EVEN tried to log-out, it kept giving me this error message saying that I was banned for the following reason: Rules violations.
It was a disaster, and I couldn't even do anything about my email being there!

Just an example of why I can't stand getting banned on several sites of the internet -_-

25 Blocked Videos on YouTube

YouTube has been blocking Vocaloid videos due to fake copyright reports, or "this can't be viewed in your country" even though it never said that before!

It's sometimes good, like what if it was porn?

Alright Youtube, you better stop blocking videos right now! I JUST WANT TO WATCH SOME MUSIC GAME VIDEOS!

I hate blocked videos, that should be higher up on the list.
