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

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. - masongilbert74

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!

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

Oops, my system crashed, I lost my data but I have an antivirus - SpectralOwl

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. - PotBellyPup

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

do they want me to join thier cult? - moose4life19

Come on last level of Mario cart 8! (Pop up appears) me: noo!

3 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... - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I hate it when people say "u" instead of "you" and "r" instead of "are"
Do you even go to school? I understand being lazy but, typing JUST 3 letters can be done in ONE second.

4 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.

They say really mean things to people, like “kill yourself”Cyberbullies aren’t just annoying, they are an extremely big problem. If you make a list called “ things on the internet that should be stopped,” definitely put cyber bullying.

5 Porn

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*

Looking for pictures of snakes for a school project. Naked women pop up!

This thing shouldn't even be a thing.

7 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.

I have autism, and this comment sickens me. - PhoebeThunderman

I agree. The reason I sometimes cause trouble on other sites it's because I have autism. I do wish to behave better though :/ - RB-Number1-fan

When did I have the choice? And if I did, I would chose Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

8 Trolls

just a bunch of virgins with no life - LucasMota

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

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. - allamassal

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

Ugh. One word: VIRGINS

9 Advertising

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!

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.

Hi would you like to buy a PianoQueen music note for only 7 easy payments of 79.99! Get a free t-shirt if you pay shipping and handling! (With an added fee of 4.99! ) Buy it and I won't be financially screwed! - PianoQueen

Yeah, advertising is so annoying, every time when I watch a video of my favorite Youtuber, TheDiamondMinecart, it stops in half of the video and sometimes it doesn't allow me to skip. Not only that, when I watch T.V. and my favorite program is about start, I have to watch at least 50 to 60 ads. When my least favorite program takes 5 to 10 ads. SO ANNOYING! >:<

10 Hackers

The Newcomers

? "Waiting for cache..."

For Chrome users, this shows that Chrome doesn't want to load any page. - NuMetalManiak

The Contenders

11 Fanbases

Fan bases. Annoying ones like brownies.

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

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

I really really hate these guys

13 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. - allamassal

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? - NuMetalManiak

Sometimes TheTopTens has server errors. It's annoying.

14 People take it too seriously.

I agree. if you can clearly see a guys deluded or misinterpreting don't make such a big deal out of it and which they died or you could torture them. many of the deluded guys are nice people but maybe a bit stupid, naive or maybe more experienced. nobody should be hated for being stupid or having different views. if you hate others views it just goes to show that your inconsiderate and think your views are right. believing is feeling I say

Like when people take a joke video seriously on youtube and go "FAKE! " - AmINumberOneYet

Learn how to take jokes, please.

15 People who use hashtags outside of Twitter

You can use it on Google+ and Instagram too, I believe,

Like using them on TheTopTens?

16 Pop ups that say you won a million dollars

NO I did not win a million dollars. And no thanks, I don't want free viruses on my device, thank you.

More like a free virus. - PianoQueen

Don't trust these it just a scam

Me: "Uhh... I don't even know this web-"
Me: "Er, I think I'll just go now." -begins to walk out internet door-

17 Nostalgiatards

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. - NuMetalManiak

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

18 Error 404 : Not Found

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 - RustyNail

19 Racial and Prejudiced Comments

You can have whatever opinion you want, but I don't want to read about it every time I read a news article or watch a video online. And there are usually numerous grammatical spelling mistakes. - kiwigreeneyes

I hate it when those racist trolls pop out of no where. - SapphireGrim

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. - Lunala

21 Plagiarism
22 Slow Loading

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

23 Biased People

You know, those people who are all like
You get it by now.

24 Memes

Agreed, dumb memes suck. Funny memes are great.

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

Some people use memes that are dead, and it gets on my nerves - FuffleyandPeetah

25 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. - Nonpointed

I mean, this is obviously bad.

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

Internet: Please do this survey to download.

Guy: NO - tent2

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

Seriously close-minded people.

27 Spelling mistakes

If someone doesn't know the difference between their, there, and they're, I automatically thing they're a little child that shouldn't be using the internet at their age - kaitlynrad11

I find it very difficult to take someone seriously if they can't spell.

Minor ones that meaning can be still understood should be fine. Also, how about American/British spelling, which is an entire different story.

Its ez too spel rite. - PianoQueen

28 Dumb Users

That think good users and bad users exist.

oh yeah

Sexists(especially if they're hypocritical), racists(consciously or unconsciously), homophobic people(especially those who use "gay" as an insult)

29 Getting banned

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 -_- - RB-Number1-fan

30 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?

It seems racist but probably not - mayamanga

That is so annoying

I just want the article! Oh, just subscribe to 1000000000000 mailing lists!

33 Littlest Pet Shop videos

Used to play with these when I was little. Seeing cute designs being drenched in neon pink paint and turned into customs annoys me. The fandom is very cringy in my opinion. - Lunala

Often it's just young girls having fun. Yes, it might be a little cringeworthy to some, but they're usually not hurting anyone. - Entranced98

34 Fan art

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. - naFrovivuS

What? This is actually fun! - RB-Number1-fan

35 Wars between Emoji Movie fans and Emoji Movie haters
36 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!

37 Connection Problems

It especially sucks when you have connection problems. I'm glad that we don't use dial-up anymore.

This should be number 1

38 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!

I just can't write windows vista on Google. But I Can watch horrible things.

39 Facebook

Who invented this stupid thing? - donrodrigo

Facebook is underrated!

Worse than Google+

Facebook is a nest of gossipers, attention whores, and advertisers.


They take too long and are annoying and the picture clicking ones make the pictures take FOREVER to load - Lunala

Luckily, Google changed that a long time ago

Finally a list that have reCRAPTCHA. That thing is forcing you to click the pictures of the things that it says. I did it, but it said me to try again. THAT reCAPTCHA IS PURE BULL CRAP.

Yeah, they're so annoying.

41 Web sites that you frequently visit that suddenly upgrade and you find it harder to use now.

YouTube Facebook Google! For the win! YouTube used to be so awesome! Now it's crap.

Yahoo used to be good. But it sucks now.

Examples: TheTopTens,YouTube,etc. - GrapeJuiceK

This is a reply to whoever typed the 1st comment:

Yeah, Ikr? YouTubers need a Google+ account, which raids you for your personal info AND puts up every stinking comment you post on your Google+ profile. And if you get rid of the G+ account, you can't use your YouTube without without one.

42 Stupid Websites
43 Nobody takes anything seriously

I won't take this item seriously :D

44 Using numbers as a replacement for letters

Seriously, I don't remember zero being part of the alphabet. Besides, it just makes it more difficult to read. What has society come to?

Oh, like that kind of numbering speak? Oh, there are a lot here. It's just something you have to get used to. - Fandom_Lover

I love 2 use numbers 4 letters. - PianoQueen

Haha that won't apply to names. Deadmau5, keycha1n and stuff like that.

45 Annoying Internet Girls

What really sucks is that sometimes they can get away with bullying by pulling a "girl" card. I've seen happen before and it's honestly unfair treatment of an actual minority of people - NuMetalManiak

Popular girls from my grade. Put up a selfie and say "lol I'm ugly" for attention.

I don't do that. I'm one of the good internet girls, not an attention seeker. - Lunala

I hate it when you get the girls on social networking sites where they put up a really nice photo of themselves with the comment of Ugh... Look how Ugly I am withoput makeup on. I'm just sat there like, its called natural looking biatch, get used to it

Or Internet Sluts?

46 Lag
47 Dan and Phil

Who cares about these guys anyway, apart from crazy teenage girls?

To be honest, I really love Dan and Phil, they're really funny, nice guys. But even if I do, I'm not an insane fangirl. I just really enjoy watching them. :) Don't hate on me, please, it's just my opinion.

I hope I'm not the only teenage girl who hates this youtube channel.

Good news: I'm pretty certain there are other teen girls who hate this channel as well. - Lunala
