Top 10 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

This word is just so dumb! I hate seeing this word. In my opinion, itpretty much says that "I disagree with you, therefore you should like it less". It bothers me when someone uses it or any of the related words (underrated, overhated, and underhated (though very uncommon)). It bothers me even more when people call foods overrated, because everybody has different taste buds!

Who cares if the majority likes something? One person PERSONALLY thinks it's bad because of their PERSONAL tastes, so it obviously shouldn't be praised anyone who PERSONALLY likes said thing.

Seriously though, stop using this word, also 10000 cats are hit by jumbo jets every time it's used

Overrated =/= Bad

For example, Queen and Eminem are overrated but they good, Led Zeppelin and Linkin Park are overrated and bad. Kanye West is not overrated and is good, 6ix9ine is not overrated and trash. There.

Overrated doesn't mean bad.
Overrated = Gets a lot of praise, despite the fact that it doesn't deserve it.
If everyone liked Superman 64, then the game would have been overrated

2 Cringe

It started out as a relatively innocent word your dad might have used to describe a comedian whose jokes didn't quite do it for him.

Now it's everywhere - if you like a certain TV show or did something slightly out of the ordinary, the overgrown 10-year-old school bullies of the internet will start hollering 'CRIIINGE' live a caveman's mating call.

I hate this word, especially when it isn't even used right. people use this word to what they feel that is cringe. Remember cringe is an action not a adjective

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.

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."


Rofl sounds like someone pushing a guy eating a subway sandwich off a cliff.

People use it all the time at the end of their comments and they are
unnecessary, it's very annoying!

I admit it. I do use this occasionally but not in every single sentence!

I have literally never seen this before, it can't be overused.

4 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.

My sister is autistic, but the internet is so stupid, they use it as a excuse to why they are stupid. A guy in a fandom kept on being mad when you either correct him or say an opinion he doesn't agree AND WRITES ALL CAPITALS AND IN BOLD! He was so annoying, he got reported and he was arguing to one of the advisors, and he said "The truth is I have autism and I'm actually 28" Ha! More like "The truth is I am an attention seeker and I'm actually 2 or 8" Autism isn't something to give you more attention or an excuse to be stupid

Not only is this overused, but is morally wrong. It isn't their fault if someone is autistic. So don't use it as an insult. If you highly believe autism just makes someone look dumb, then that disgusts me, because I have high function autism myself, and I have an above average IQ.

My brother is autistic. And he won scholarships and a high ranking college. He has Aspergers, which right now is still on the AUTISM spectrum. So yes it's classified as autism. He is awesome. Also antivaxxers, autism isn't a disease.

5 Gay

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.

I hate this when it's used as a remark for bad thing's. Think of all the people you're offending when you say this word. And also, it is not a insult, it's just something some people are, and also, it mean's happy. So don't use this word!

I hate people that hate gays. What did they do to you? My idol, my hero, Freddie Mercury was bi, and that doesn't bother me a bit. Please, people, stop using this. Gay people are people too. You's are all so mean.

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?!

6 Cancer

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.

Can you guys stop getting so triggered over everything. Cancerous is a term that can also be used for stuff that is annoying and sucks but is all over the place.

I swear sometimes, but I never use swords like cancer. It's not even funny to make fun of, because it's a horrible disease. I rather drop f bombs.

As a girl who had a friend that died from cancer this being used as an insult just makes me depressed.


I really don't know why people tell me to kill myself randomly, like I want to, the only thing stopping me is being afraid of what happens next.

I have been told this once by a commenter on YouTube. I can't tell you how angry I got, I was so angry I could even turn to Super Saiyan! I've never been angrier than I was that day.

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

What I hear from modern cartoon fans,modern game fans and modern music fans all the time. Yeah...these idiots think that everything modern is God's gift to the universe,while anything clssic/nostalgic is garbage.

8 First!

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

My first youtube video no one comments, one hundred days later, one comment on video comment first.

I hate YouTube comment sections sometimes thanks to this.

YouTube comment sections in a nutshell.

9 Racist

Liberals call Trump this all the time and it lost it's meaning.

Especially when it's used wrong.

Let's just all get along, no matter the color of skin or where you are from. it's not the 1800s

10 SJW

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!

The Newcomers

? Sus
The Contenders
11 OMG

No one uses this apart from basic girls in 2015. But when they do it's so annoying.

It's really 2015 and only some phony teenage girls say that.

Nobody says this anymore, this word is so 2015.

Yeah nobody uses this anymore.

12 Sexist

Tumblr has left the chat.

13 Snowflake

Used by Republicans to take down any other candidate party making themselves look professional and so they protect trump even though trump is a dumbass b! tch racist narcissist xenophobic self centered idiotic loser and is supported by brainwashed folks who don't understand the negativity of the disapproval of a human being trump

Ah the insult, a rather stupid word to use as an insult.
Remember when snowflake used to just mean snow.

I always see people use this word when they're trying to insult someone who is calling out someone for making a racist/sexist/ableist/homophobic joke or something and it is so annoying. People always think they automatically win the argument by calling someone a "snowflake" when, in reality, this "snowflake" is just being a decent human being.

14 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.

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

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

Like those who call fictional characters "Daddy". "Mommy" is no better.

15 Sucks

Why It Sucks

Bullying is the most popular opinions on entire universe can go to heaven. Some good,friendly,nice,harmless people is so hated and will go to die in hell

People who complain about words suck.

I want to kill this word!

This word sucks.

16 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

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

Why is this an insult at all? caring about people as a whole is bad? why?

17 WTF

What is one supposed to reply to this?

Watch that family

Will that float?

18 Bae

This should be number 1. Pronounce it right, or don't even make it a thing.

It actually means poop in Danish.

Bad means asian pear in Korean (I think).

This one doesn't even mean anything.

19 Troll

This word died around the time that Rage Comics died. I hate the sudden influx of people using this word, thinking they're "trendy" and "cool" for using a word strictly used online. Any time I see the word "troll" on this website I cringe because it's old and dead and needs to stay that way.

Nowadays it seems like it's the only word people think they can use to describe any negativity whatsoever. Really, really stupid. I've been called a troll on YouTube for telling a user to stop arguing with another. Really, really, REALLY stupid.

If u hear these the person who said that is a troll:
Spamming a spammer?
Do you want to meet girls?
Go to my kitchen
Will you put some olive oil in my ear?
I will order a rocket ship
I'm looking for you
Friend me, stranger
I ate a cotton ball
You want some sirracha?
I bought you a thousand dollar truck
I'm eating frogs
My mom talks about you
Find me in Antarctica
I made mustard rainbows

I don't like trolls

20 Savage

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.

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

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

21 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.

So overused they made freaking girl dolls with the name.

It's a guy cheering.

22 Ripoff

Anything that is inspired by something else is a rip-off, apparently.

Copycat: Completely free no money requirement

People: Rip Off!

23 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

Its not a choice, do straight people choose to be straight?

Most obnoxiously overused word ever.

It gets annoying

24 F***

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.

Should be #1. Bad words annoy me so much. Why can't everyone be nice and use nice words?

I'm not offended by it, but it is really overused. It loses all expression.

Most people who use it as an insult try to be cool and fit in.


I've actually never seen anyone use this word, both online and in real life.

Who actually uses this outdated word after 2013?

Who actually used this passed 2014.

You Our lame obviously.
