Ten Most Annoying Things People Do On the Internet


The Top Ten

1 Criticize your opinion

You see people arguing online, and rarely do you see someone going "I'm afraid your viewpoint is incorrect, and in my view this is why". Instead, we have a miasma of flames spewed over someone's viewpoint, and the rules of the discussion are completely thrown out the window. Bonus points if the one's spewing are well-respected members and/or moderators, if they do this continuously they ought to be the one's banned for their repetitive bad behavior than the other side of the argument. Especially if that side is actually reasonable to argue with. - Nonpointed

Conflicting opinions is good, it encourages debates and all, but calling people idiots because they don't share your viewpoint makes you look like a jerk

You can't stand conflicting opinions? Anybody will criticize you, and you will always have haters, no matter what. If you can't take these, then you shouldn't be online.

Everyone is entitled not everything is a fact unless proven to be incredibly troll-ish otherwise. - htoutlaws2012

Using caps means that you are yelling at people. - Kartman

3 Threaten to do something bad

Example of this is well ''KYS.'' Never what you wanna see a hater take it too personal. - htoutlaws2012

4 Trolling

These losers have no lives. They are the second worst type of person on the internet behind pedophiles.

There is a perk I have for troll I cannot stand the majority of them, and then there those who are actually pros like the ShigeruMiyamoto parody, but then there a ton of baddies that just need to fend outta here with there notorious history. - htoutlaws2012

Yeah, trolling can be a real pain in the neck most of the times, but not really if you're watching a video of a gamer trolling some douchebag in a game of Call of Duty. - AlexTopTens

5 ''Correct'' your grammar even though it was right

What is "right"? Anyway, people usually correct your grammar if they're aware that they are losing the debate.

People who use better grammar on the internet are seen are more intelligent. It's psychological and something people have to accept. We can be bothered to learn grammar instead of stupid acronyms. I don't personally use grammar online to impress people, I just do it because it feels more comfortable for me to. Why would you switch between using grammar at school and internet slang on the internet when you could use either one of these options everywhere instead? I use grammar so much outside the internet that I prefer using it inside the internet as well. It just feels wrong not using it. That's probably also the reason I commonly type my comments as if I'm typing an essay..-. - LemonComputer

Trolls who are grammar Nazis do it to piss people off

Granted I get made fun of when I make an obvious mistake I try to lessen that quite simply nobody is perfect. - htoutlaws2012

Please go home you grammar nazi

6 Hack into accounts

Hacking is not acceptable and the act should be banned, immediately.

When I first saw the end poem in Minecraft I thought my account was hacked and now I know I will hate it if I get hacked

Hacking into accounts is actually illegal. - LemonComputer

My aunt in a nutshell

7 Spam

I see this done on post comments either because they don't see the comment approved, or I'm outta town, and still have another rendition. - htoutlaws2012

Spamming is annoying. Especially bronies who are running around the internet, putting pony pictures everywhere they go. And then they look for a random forum website, discussion page, or the comment section in a YouTube video, and put some random my little pony comment even though the topic has nothing to do with ponies.

8 Post selfies

I don't like selfies neither, but when they're online, you can just ignore them and carry on with your day. However, its when your mum starts forcing you to have lots of pictures taken of yourself when it gets really annoying. Every time we're somewhere, even if it's a place we've been to millions of times before, my mum has to take lots of selfies and feels like it's her duty make me do the same. I hate having photos done. I even hate seeing myself in a mirror, never mind on an electronic device or on Facebook. I hate cameras and the ability to take them on phones. It makes me feel so anxious. Also, she sometimes does the most awkward poses that you could ever do while taking her selfies. Sometimes she does flirty poses, and keeping in mind that she's 41 or something, you can imagine that being very cringy. Selfies are cringy as a whole. She feels like an artist messing around with the filters on her phone but I don't feel good at art although I can do decent filters and stuff using ...more - LemonComputer

I really don't like this habit I don't give cafe whether it is a male or a female, they are annoying...
No one cares what you ate for dinner or where you were last night. - Ananya

I just don't get the concept of selfies. They're just weird (and sometimes disturbing) pictures. - FennikenFan9

Bathroom selfies are very annoying.

9 Act immature

Such as attacking others, or posting awful sexual conduct they should be banned. - htoutlaws2012

10 Repost a popular Picture/Comment

Not sure about 10 most annoying, but I have seen far worse then this. - htoutlaws2012

The Contenders

11 Post porn in chatrooms

Which is relatable by being a immatured ego maniac. - htoutlaws2012

*________ has been banned from the chatroom*

12 Trask-talk

Are people stupid enough to trash talk about a little mistake, when our world is full of rapists, murderers and robbers?

Arrogance I see, back it up why don't you? - htoutlaws2012

Trask is the new trash. - ACKREIK

You mean trash talk? -Vestalis

13 Give credit to hated things

I can't believe many people love junk adventure time fanworks!

The net is full of disgusting adventure time fanfics an fanart and a many people think they're masterpieces!

14 Try to win an argument they already lost

Jared usually comes victorious at most outcomes. - htoutlaws2012

That's very immature.

15 Hate popular things

Only hipsters like everything that's popular. It's not even real like neither, they just pretend to like it. - LemonComputer

People can hate popular things if they want to. It's their choice.

No one has to like popular things.

16 "Thumbs Up If..."

For example "thumbs up if you like cake" or "thumbs up if you hate Justin Bieber" and they somehow get a lot of likes because people can never recognize a scam when they see and obvious one.

No, I'm not going to "Thumbs Up" if I laughed at a certain part. No, I'm not going "Thumbs Up" if I think something is awesome - Hakros323

For example "thumbs up if you hate Justin Bieber" or "thumbs up if you like cake" and they actually get a lot of likes because people can never recognize a scam when they see an obvious one. It just makes me facepalm to see that people are that dumb to actually give it a thumbs up.

Thumbs up if you like dank memes.
ThUmBs Up If YoU lIkE pEoPlE. - ACKREIK

17 Bash someone for no good reason
18 Be sexist

For the last time, no gender is better, or cooler, or more this than that. It's just so stupid!

All genders are equal

How about equality, balance it all out. - htoutlaws2012

"All girls have to wear make up" But I hate makeup. I never wear it.
"All boys cannot like the colour pink" WRONG you can like any colour you want, no matter your gender. My favourite colour is black. - Lunala

19 Tell you to "KYS" because you like something they hate

I'm getting really annoyed with the KYS thing. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Its very common to see a hater make this comment, and its flat out wrong. - htoutlaws2012

20 Inappropriately message you

I've experienced this on a game before and it was annoying

Sending inappropriate content or just straight up attack you who expect to be a cyberbully, Yes it still exists. - htoutlaws2012

21 Respond to you without reading your comment

Irreverent random things being shoved out there pretty much. - htoutlaws2012

22 Be homophobic

What's so scary about gay people?

23 Capitalize the first letter of every word

Yeah, Who Would Capitalize The First Letter? It Is Really Bad Grammar.

It's annoying, for sure. It's hard to read, and like you start shouting, and then stop. - PastelFlowers

This is irritating when people do it. It also makes the words hard to read. - Lunala

Why Would People Do This? It's Really Annoying.

24 First Comment

Why do people do this? Does it really matter if you're first? - Hakros323

Relates to YouTube more than any other site not sure it has been a trend for this long. - htoutlaws2012

Mostly YouTube commentors always fight for first comment. Honestly who cares? And they only do that to seek attention. What matters is that the comment is interesting.

97th comment!

25 Record their every move on social media

That would be the gov't agency you speak of then. - htoutlaws2012

26 Grammar Nazis

They should die in the biggest chemical fire.

My classroom is full of these. When teachers make a typo on a PowerPoint everyone will call it out OVER AND OVER and it bugs me. - Lunala

27 Swear
28 Associate every monkey with Harambe
29 Tag friends in random pictures

This is implied in Facebook pretty much, and yeah It's pretty annoying to say the least. - htoutlaws2012

30 Writing Darude-Sandstorm when someone asks what the song is called

Especially when it's that catchy song you keep hearing and you have been trying to identify it for six months. - Lunala

Its hysterical actually, but the song has the awesome video game feel at least. - htoutlaws2012

31 Compare unrelated shows

Or even more off compare unrelated combinations. - htoutlaws2012

32 Hate someone that didn't do anything for you

Going out on a limb, and calling that person overrated despite critical acclaim, or they lacked something you hated with first impressions without the slightest hesitations. - htoutlaws2012

33 Stalk people

Hey buddy how's that arch rivalry going on huh? - htoutlaws2012

34 Harass people

Do you want to be put down for sexual conduct? I didn't think so. - htoutlaws2012

35 Use Your E-Mail Address to Register on a Dating Site.

Never happened to me, and never will. Being secure and unknown so no one finds you is the best option.

One time, I got an email for a website I don’t know about. I declined it because you had to use the email link to create an account.

36 Make gender stereotypical lists

In other words offend for the sake of being offensive of no fear bias. - htoutlaws2012

This happens a lot on the top tens

37 Using autism as an insult

Which is the worst kind of insult ever, I have seen autistic people go on to bigger, and better accolades. - htoutlaws2012

This is why the internet is bad

38 Say they were raped for attention
39 Searching porn
40 Call people who commit suicide coward or selfish
41 Post copypastas

The Rick and Morty copypastas are getting under my skin, as well as the "It's COCKtober! Share this with 12 of your closest Haloween hoes…" with the spammed emojis. There's also the "i'm DELETING YOU DADDY! " which was funny the first 3 times but is now irritating. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

42 Using 'Gay' to mean lame

Gay does NOT mean lame. Quit trying to make that a thing.

43 Steal people's posts
44 Spew out Vines

Nobody likes getting annoyed, we all know the old saying “Treat others the way you wanna be treated.” If people listen to that important statement, then they wouldn’t constantly annoy people with Vines endlessly! How would you feel if I said the same thing to you every single day of your life? At first, you think its just harmless, but after enough times, it will get on your nerves. And Vine has exceeded that limit, and does nothing but infuriate me, and drive me to insanity
