Most Overused (and Annoying) Words Online

The use of certain words that we use unnecessarily. LOL. Especially on chats, MySpace comments, texting, etc.

The Top Ten

1 Overrated

Overrated: a word idiots use to describe things that they hate, not because it's bad, but because it's popular.

(People are entitled to their own opinions, but I think it's stupid to hate something or someone for that reason) - Kefka

You know what's annoying? When people keep on saying something's overrated over and over to the point that it becomes overhated. - Misfire

People say this way too much

I'm guilty of using this word a lot, especially for music. - Soulstealer


I don't care - Pokemonfan10

This is overused & really annoying. - jdramirez

Well original text words so whatever.

I'm guilty of using these words quite a bit...

3 Gay

It's not "True," it's offensive, to say someone is gay and making fun of them.

Why in the heck is this an insult?! People should take pride in their sexuality and using this word in such a demeaning way is not helping. What is wrong with people?!

Only bad if used unironically and being hateful. If it's joking then there's nothing wrong. - DarkBoi-X

People see being gay as the most obscene think in the world. You don't like it when your persecuted for something about you. How would you feel if you were gay and you were seen as the lowest thing on earth. It also sucks that religious books tell people to hate them and kill them simply for who they are.

Especially Christianity. Just read Leviticus. People shouldn't be wasting so much effort on taking away gays rights and been nasty. If you're not gay you have no rights over a gay's life.

The lowest people on earth are pedophiles not gays anyway. At least taking away their rights will protect children.

We Christians don't hate gays just because we disagree with their lifestyles.

4 Cringe

This should EASILY be #1.
I remember those times when I used to hear someone calling something "cringe," "cringy," and "cringeworthy."
I was fine at first, though I've always find it stupid. But then, as it noticeably got ridiculously overused, I just wanted to say "oh my god just SHUT UP! "
Like, seriously, if you want to say that you dislike something, don't use a word that's not synonymous with the word "bad." It literally should not that difficult. - Jasmine21064

This word has been beaten into the ground so bad just looking at it pisses me off, especially all the people mooching off cringe comps and making people be embarrassed to have fun.


Cringe in the Past:
"To cower or shrink in fear or disgust."

Cringe in the Present Day:
"To define something that you dislike or do not understand. Internet trolls use this word as an insult towards people in fandoms, with bad grammar, or both combined. Trolls, edgelords, and children also use this word to describe memes on some occasions."

5 Autistic

Listen, folks. Autism is a real thing. It doesn't mean "stupid" or "cringeworthy". Rather, it is a mental condition/disorder that acts as what I call a "tilt". One side (for me, existential and linguistic intelligence) is better than average, at the cost of social skills. Now, don't get me wrong. It can be a curse far more often than a blessing. This includes when people use it to insult random things. It's offensive and outright cruel. - Cyri

As someone else on the spectrum, I agree. It's insulting and stereotypical and I cringe whenever someone uses it incorrectly. - al1070

Only bad if used unironically and to be hateful. - DarkBoi-X

Guys, we should seriously stop using this as an insult! Please check the dictionary for the meaning before you even use this word! - EllenseaFornost

*climbs up on Empire State building holding a megaphone, and holds the megaphone up to my mouth*
AUTISTIC =/= STUPID! - RoseWeasley


Ah, the replies I get from any classic rock fan whenever I express my opinion, sweet eh? - AlphaQ

Keep your sanity. - Vancedapurpleguy

Kick Your Salami - AlphaQ

Keep your socks - DarkBoi-X

7 Cancer

My grandpa has cancer, this word is offensive to those who have it or know someone who has it.

No. It is a good way to describe things that are cancerous. - DarkBoi-X

It is pretty much used by edgelords, still not the best word to use. - AlphaQ

Whatever happened to cancer being defined as a serious health disease that people are suffering from rather than a stupid term to describe anything people hate. This can actually be very disrespectful to people who are suffering from cancer and those who had to go through losing their loved ones that suffered from cancer. - HoldenFanatic

8 First!

You want a medal of something? - RogerMcBaloney

I hate YouTube comment sections sometimes thanks to this. - AlphaQ

God so annoying. And it's even worse when these comments are the top comments on YouTube videos and have over 1,000 likes. - DaWyteNight

YouTube comment sections in a nutshell. - Userguy44


SJW: Kill all men/cis/straights, all men are evil, extreme views, etc.

Not an SJW: Someone with common human decency/someone who wants actual justice.

Type it and it feels like your IQ is dropping logarithmically.
Most people who say it put an apostrophe at the end, too...cringe! - emraldYE


10 OMG

Yeah nobody uses this anymore.

Nobody says this anymore, this word is so 2015. - DarkBoi-X

Who uses this anymore?

I say this a lot haha - Luckys

Actually, it’s actually an actually overused word actually; actually, you can actually see this actually everywhere in group chats actually. Actually, people actually use this actually unnecessary. - Leafeon

Actually, this word is good and if you actually went to a school that actually had a class that actually taught you, you'd actually know that. And actually, overusing words isn’t actually bad and actually helps people. - RoseWeasley

17 Troll

Trolls are good - AlphaQ

I don't like trolls - Pokemonfan10

Not a big deal. - Userguy44

But trolls are amazing. - DarkBoi-X

18 Daddy

I've been called "daddy" by my own classmates, its creepy but funny at the same time. Oh, and its always used in dumb fan fictions. - AlphaQ

Nothing wrong with calling your dad this, but please stop calling fictional characters and school shooters "Daddy." - RoseWeasley

Like those who call fictional characters "Daddy" - ElSherlock

Everyone calls people this and I'm just confused, like what is the point?

19 Liberal

Liberals, what cool people. Or at least better than Conservatives. Honestly many ignorant people think Liberals and SJW's are the same even though they are different - DarkBoi-X

I'm not even a liberal and dear god the word has pretty much lost all it's meaning. - Swellow

20 Bae

Bae means poop. (To all the people who think bae means dear)

Bae actually means sh**. - HistorianaPhilippiniana

Yes, one of my friends (now my enemy) used to use this too much. "HOW YOU GOING BAE? WHERE'S MY BAE? CAN I HAVE A HUG, BAE? " - WheresMyGuitarPick

It actually means poop in Danish.

21 F***

Amazing word! - RogerMcBaloney

It's not that overused on childish sites, if you go on Reddit though expect some f-bombs but on Tumblr it's a whole other level. - AlphaQ

Yeah it is overused plus it's rude

Amazing - DarkBoi-X

22 Savage

Another amazing word. - DarkBoi-X

Online, the word savage means going up to a dude from the hood and kick them in the balls. - VeganTurtle

Savage nowadays just means annoying behavior that is somehow considered as awesome. It really isn't. Annoying is annoying no matter what it is. - NuMetalManiak

I don't why people see this as a compliment. In fifth grade, there was a group chat that everyone always talked about called Savage Squad that everyone was in except me. Oh well, I wouldn't want to be in it anyways. - sadical


Who actually used this passed 2014. - DarkBoi-X

I say this a lot in person or when texting - Luckys

YOLO=You only laugh once - Pokemonfan10

YOLO = I Want To Kill Myself

24 Homophobe

WARNING: If you can't handle an opinion, don't bother reading on and getting offended. This word is so damn over used! I actually don't just hate the over usage of this word. It also makes no SENSE! If you have any intellgence whatsoever, you will recognize that 'Phobia' is a suffix that is strictly used to mean 'a fear of something'. Not 'something that you find nasty or unnecessary'. So if you think about it logically, this word is dumb. As for another irritating and over-stated comment, 'Being gay isn't a choice.'. Being gay is in fact a choice. An animal or human being is designed to be physically able to reproduce with the opposite sex. NOT designed to be able to reproduce with whatever gender they prefer at that time. No animal is 'born gay' even if there are same sex animals that care for abandoned babies. The animal CHOOSES that life for itself. Just as us humans do. However, a persn can decide to date among their own gender. Also, before every comment calls me 'predjudiced' ...more

It gets annoying - Crizz

Most obnoxiously overused word ever. - Soulstealer

You get called that if you diagree with there views. - Crizz

25 Ripoff

All I hear is Fortnite battle royals is ripoff of PUBG(it is a ripoff, but people keep repeating it) - VeganTurtle

26 Epic Fail!

2011 just called. - shiftaltkey

This fad is an epic fail! - Ashes

I want to punch someone in the face when I hear this the fad just won't end and it's not even cool. - happyhappyjoyjoy

Say this all the time...

27 -Ass

Ass, what a cool word. Amazing. Shouldn't be here. - DarkBoi-X

Goodass, fatass, kickass... Can you stop adding ass to every word?!

Any word that has ass in it is seriously annoying. The word badass is extremely overused.

What a Bad-Ass idea. (It's bad.)

28 lol

The most annoying one (particularly when used sarcastically) ever since it was introduced, and it just won't die. I'm surprised it isn't ranked higher.

I hate it when people use this word in real conversations. - RogerMcBaloney

It's a guy cheering. - Cyri

"LOL" is so overused that it's here twice. And yes, I feel like it's overused because it ruins the meaning if the slang abbreviation is used to respond to: EVERY. SINGLE. MESSSAGE. - Kwaysar

29 Elitist

I've seen this word a few times and I'm guilty of using it to describe people who are pricks about music. - shiftaltkey

Aka a word that has no meaning because everyone can be considered one - christangrant

30 Salty

Salt is salty. - RogerMcBaloney

I can be pretty salty, if I do say so myself. - IceFoxPlayz

This describes some poor English teacher's tears. - Cyri

That describes my fries.

31 Butthurt

I don't like butthurt people because they get offended so DAMN EASILY - AlphaQ

32 Noob

Thanks Roblox... - RogerMcBaloney

Me when the ice cream machine is broken.

2013-esque insult - DarkBoi-X

So Overused

33 Literally

This is literally the most annoying thing ever. I am literally dying inside reading this. - Cyri

This literally should be no. 3 on the list. - PageEmperor

I hate the fact this word is losing its meaning thanks to people using it for things that aren't literal. For example if someone got a bad grade on their essay, saying 'my teacher literally took a dump on my essay' is essentially saying their teacher pulled their pants down and pooped right on it. Just take 'literally' out and that statement would be fine. - Entranced98

34 Terrible
35 Bro

And I thought the words "buddy" and "dude" were annoying

You should only use "bro" if you're African American. Nothing more pathetic than little white kids trying to be as cool as black people and throwing "bro" in every sentence. Ultimate cringer : "U mad, Bro? ". Awful.

I don't think its annoying when they say it in a positive sentence, but in a negative sentence, and if they use it all the time, its annoying!

I am not your bro. Especially if it's to say "F you, bro"

36 Poser
37 Swag

I'm glad nobody uses this anymore. - RogerMcBaloney

It’s a great word

What does it even mean? - blackflower

SWAG means secretly we are gay

38 Dank

Amazing complex word, only people with an IQ of 420 can understand the true meaning of it. - AlphaQ

No. This is amazing. - DarkBoi-X

Good memes though. - DarkBoi-X

What does this even mean?

39 Holla

Well. If you are writing something one can reply to, then obviously one will write back. No need to state it.

I'm confused does it mean hello or reply?

What does it mean? - 0744rose

Holla sounds like both Hola and hula, and it is NOT a word.

41 Bitch

Lasagna - Bammer73

Bitch please, this isn't a terrible word, bitch. - AlphaQ

42 Illuminati

Oh, well I like conspiracy theories about the Illuminati. - sadical

Not the word, but the theory about it is kinda annoying, because it doesn’t make sense at all. - Userguy44

There's like, these really annoying (whatever you want) is ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED! videos on youtube where they put unrealistic reasons that don't even make sense why something is illuminati. It's so annoying!

43 Obviously
44 Yo
