Top Ten Things Bad TopTenners Do

There are the good TopTenners and then there's the bad ones. You may be surprised about this and you may even do some of the things that bad TopTenners do.. If you do, consider this list as a way to improve and not as if I'm picking on you because I'm not.
The Top Ten
1 Not accept others' opinions

I’ve someone in a YouTube comment section make death threats to someone else for even making a reference to fortnite. While the fortnite fanbase is bad, the hatebase is 10 times worse.

Well, if you know the reason why I am a TopTenner, you know, that for me this is unnaceptable. If you don't accept other opinions, you are against liberty of expressions. Not that you can't criticize other's opinions to create interesting discussions. As long as there is no insult and that you accept any form of counter arguments it's okay.

Scroll down on Sword Art Online's Greatest Anime of All Time comments section enough, and you'll see a visitor calling the anime stupid, the author stupid, and worst of all, for the fans of Sword Art Online to go home and die. That is the worst comment I have ever heard in my life.

One User Who Is A Rabid Hater Of Both Finding Nemo And Finding Dory Disrespected Disney1994's Opinion On Finding Dory And That Comment Said Something Like People Who Like This Movie Are Idiots,That Was Not Nice Even Though Disney1994 Is Not The Best User

2 Make lists about killing people

I know that these are jokes, but these lists seriously need to be taken down. For joke lists, these go WAY too far and are pathetic excuses of lists.

If I ever see someone make such a list, then I legitimately never want to lay eyes on them for as long as I live.

I've been sick of everyone complaining about such lists because they get butthurt over such jokes.

Danteem: Everyone should visit my killing list called Ways to Kill Scarlett Johansson.

3 Bully fellow TopTenners

At least the rustlers, as they're known as, the main circle here of these have exiled from TTT since the middle of 2019 when they got bored..., unless they unexpectedly decide to return.

Luckily I haven't been attacked by anybody but plenty of people have been quite rude or just enormously jerkish. I won't say who.

I apologize in advance if I hurt you in any way. Just to let you know, I will not respect you if you can't respect me. Watch what you say towards me, along with anyone else.

I've been told to kill myself, go die in a hole, and die of AIDS. So immature. Also things to know if you're being cyberbullied, don't let others control your life. Your life is yours to handle! - Joshtition24

4 Make lists to promote themselves

I think this one needs some clarification. If you end up on a list you made (without self-submission, obviously,) it's okay, but it's a whole different story if you make a list of best or nicest users of the month or year and put yourself as top dog. That is arrogant and annoying.

Why *insert thing you like* fans are better than their haters list or even vice versa list are annoying and useless. Most of the time they are never based of true facts, No one should be considered better than each other because of what fandom/hatedom they are in!
This is probably one of the reasons some websites call this place TOXIC!

These lists all scream out the same thing: HI GUYS! I'M AWESOME AND HERE ARE TEN THINGS THAT WILL MAKE AN ARGUMENT IN MY FAVOUR SO OBVIOUS THAT I DON'T HAVE TO BACK IT UP WITH ANYTHING! There are users who have actually made interesting arguments, but it's one in a million. The ones that get attention are the ones who say "I like video games" or "I make millions from YouTube."

Although I am guilty of doing this on my Pug account, I regret that. The point of the user ranking lists is to try to rank users based on the subject of the list and you could possibly promote other users. Instead, if you put yourself at number one, you're a selfish narcissist. Put others before yourself.

5 Make lists on their political/religious beliefs

As long as you realize some people don't agree with you or believe said religion, this is actually fine, although I'm yet to make a totally politically or religiously motivated list.

This is especially directed at a list called "Changes America should make" This list started with some user giving stupid examples like "Ban the Theory of Evolution" Well, evolution has evidence to back it up. Stop making lists off your religious beliefs and give better ideas. Good news the community could fix this list up and give more realistic changing scenarios.

Okay, this isn't aimed at lists which are like this for example: Top Ten Flaws With the Theory Of Evolution. This list would be a fine list to make and I'd have no problems if such a list was made.

It's not the fact that one makes a type of list like this, it's that the people involved in those subjects rarely can ever respect other beliefes

I don't like these "top 10 best religions" lists. It's mostly people saying that their religion is the right one and that everyone else is a terrorist

6 Blatantly rip off lists from other websites

I have a book called "Children's Miscellany" and its all 3 volumes.
If I used it, I can easily make lists
But I have used it to create JUST ONE LIST. Then I realised that it was boring to receive votes in such a way.
That list is" Top 10 countries that begin and end with the same letter"
I guess I am a bad user after all

What does the fifth rule of making a list say? Exactly.

It's okay to make a list which is the same as an external one but don't copy the order and descriptions. That requires no effort and puts you in the group of bad users.

I can HONESLY say I've never done this. All my lists are unique to me. Albeit weird, they're still my own. I will however admit to submitting a few list without a description. I guess that makes me baaad! What's my punishment?

I take help from other websites for information. For example I search on Wikipedia for information about their formation, legacy etc.

7 Troll other users

Right now in 2020, trolling and trolls have luckily become irrelevant, since the main trolls, rustlers left the site..., that is unless they decide to return.

Most users troll other's lists when they are logged out. But still I can guess who is trolling with my list. Because when users trolling they act in different ways. Not all trolls do the same things.

These crazy frozen fans troll all of the frozen hate lists and they cannot accept someone hating frozen.

SpongeBobSuxx can be found trolling SpongeBob lists all the time.

8 Not accept criticism for their actions

So many users on this site have not wanted to take criticism at all for anything. What did this lead to? Well a couple of flame wars, I remember

If you do something you know is bad you better expect people to criticize you. Sometimes you just have to take your medicine and move on don’t make excuses or blame other people for your actions

I've received some criticism lately about spamming messages, so I will do my best to not do that again. I will simply just be patient for my lists to become popular. Thanks, PositronWildhawk.

Criticism is there to help you become a better user. If you ignore it or deny it, you won't improve.

9 Put zero effort into making lists

Again shows laziness and really makes me lose respect for you honestly at least show some semblance of effort

Bonus points if the list seems eye-catching yet there's no description on each of the items.

This Shows I Really AM A Bad User

10 Dislike comments for no reason

I sometimes do this, but on accident, I do not actually mean it. I only dislike on purpose when I do not like something.

On my old account, I got dislikes for liking Doc McStuffins, Lion Guard, and CRITICIZING a pointless comparison list.

I hate it when it happen! Whoever dislike his comments is a jerk! I hate whoever disliking one of his comment!

I hate when people do that. Its ok to dislike a comment if there is a reason but not when there is no reason.

11 Publish lists without descriptions

I'm going to make an exception for this one. If it's something very obvious and everyone who would see that list would know what it meant, then fine. Lists like Top Ten Yo Momma Jokes don't need descriptions because everyone knows what it is. What does tick me off is when people don't put time into making good lists and just shovel rubbish lists out there trying to get popular. These lists are often confusing and you don't know what the list even means sometimes.

Now this I disagree. Lots of good users don't put descriptions in their lists

Not always lists need description. if the title is clear then you don't have to repeat anything

I do this with practically all my lists.

12 Not put explanations for their ordering on their lists

For a list that is completely based on opinion and is about a serious subject, leaving comments on your submissions can give other users an idea of why you have that opinion. That's a good thing. People can see where you're coming from then.

Again, not all lists need this, only the more serious lists require this reasoning for your choices.

There's a list of "Food you thought were vegetarian/vegan" and they had no descriptions. The list baffled me. I think explanations make a list much better in terms of quality, and on an opinionated site, gives the list the base it needs to become a popular list.

This is the definition of low-quality stat-padding. It ruins what could've otherwise been an interesting list.

I don't do this because I'm bad. I just do this because I'm too lazy to write a description for every single item.

13 Submit ridiculous items onto lists

Seriously it’s not funny at all. I’ve seen Golden State Warriors on an NFL list and I had a Mario Kart themed list and people added stuff like guns, blood, death, etc like SERIOUSLY?

Thank you. Just, thank you. This happens WAY too many times. Someone stop it before I lose my mind.

This is so annoying. Someone added Dipper Pines onto a list about Warrior Cats =_=

Someone submitted Hank Hill in "Top 10 Cutest Video Game Characters".

14 Add Justin Bieber to every list

Exactly. This needs to stop already.

He is added to every hate list

Can't we just leave him alone?

It gets old

15 Threaten other people

Haven't been threatened, myself, (although I would happily swap places with TopTenners who HAVE been threatened since I don't care if I'm threatened,) but I imagine it's not the epitome of "a fun, enjoyable experience."

16 Spam messages to TopTenners about your lists

I did that a little bit of. But not for seeing my lists, I messaged them because I made some (2 lists) lists that included them. And then I made another list about users, but I didn't send them messages. And now I don't make any user ranking list. We all know who is a good user or bad user. If I make a user ranking list then it may miss many good users. That's why I stopped making those list.

I do the same thing but only with my followers, since I deduct that if you are a follower of me, you should like my content, so I want to announce them when I do a new list that might be interesting for them. Does that count? If it does I will stop doing it.

Yeah really it’s okay to lightly advertise but don’t go crazy overboard it makes you look desperate for attention. If you make a high quality list people will find it

I know this, because I just did so. Luckily, PositronWildhawk taught me that I shouldn't do that just to become popular.

17 Act like a grammar nazi

Well is this really bad? They are only helping you to correct your English. What if you're learning a language? I'd rather be corrected rather than just disregarding it for whatever reason.

I feel like this item is directed at me.

I feel like this directed at me?

18 Act like they're superior to others

This is mostly bad people in general

19 Fake their death to get attention

This is just plain weird. Generally speaking, it's rather easy to get popular so don't do this. You get the bad kind of attention, anyway, I am assuming.

20 Tells others to die

This Just Shows How Easy You Can Make Me Leave This Site

The fact that this one has happened makes me sad.

If someone do this to me. I'll leave this site.

21 Idolize one TopTenner over the others

It's okay to like [insert popular TopTenner here] for their personality and content, but there are also strange ways, such as an anonymous individual obsessing over Finch.

These users would idolise the first popular people on the site they find. Most likely Britgirl, Positron Wildhawk or some other popular user.

I idolise Britgirl but I looked at PositronWildhawk and MatrixGuy and a few others before

It's ok to be closer to some users more than others, but when you obsess over them it gets a little creepy...
I think we all know who I refer to here...
And I rest my case.

22 Type in all caps

I realized I do this too much. I should do this less often.

No introduction needed.

Yeah, These People Are Just So Annoying. If You Do This, Just Stop It.

*grabs popcorn* That'll get 'em going.


23 Post bad comments

I'll admit that I actually wrote some bad comments on here and trust me when I say that I highly regret it.

24 Spam vote

The Thing That Every TopTenners hate ~ Sealseason

25 Obsess excessively over their favorite characters

There are normal ways to say your favorite character from fiction is so, (like Connor Lassiter is my profile picture and on maybe three lists of mine,) and there are bizarre ways that say you need a psychiatrist. (For better or for worse, I can't think of an example in any specific users,)

Does this count toward me? Or is my obsession completely normal?

We all know who this user is. He's obsessed with Luigi.

Is this directed at me?
