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 Things Bad TopTenners Do

1 Not accept others' opinions

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. - Eclipsmon

Opinion disrespecting is fairly rare, only the bad users do it. However, haters take it out of context, and shine a bad light on this website. - I80

Even if you disagree with opinions, respect them in a nice manner. - Userguy44

I've been told to "Die of cancer, bitch" I've been called a "retard" "Why don't you get off this site and die? "

Yep. I'm a really bad TopTenner for not accepting 'opinions' like these. What is admin even thinking of anyway, letting comments like these through? - Britgirl

2 Make lists to promote themselves

I did made a list of why I'm a awesome user. But I regret making that list. - MorlaTurtle8

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." - PositronWildhawk

I don't make any user ranking list anymore. But I made two or three lists. But I didn't include myself. Well, one particular list I included myself, something like movie lovers. But I included myself at last. But I have never made a list about myself. And nor did I ever put myself on top of a user ranking list. - zxm

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. - Puga

3 Blatantly rip off lists from other websites

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. - Cazaam

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 - Animefan12

You learned from your mistakes! Good job! And you're a truly underrated user, even if you have 142 followers! - PizzaGuy

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

I'll be honest, I do use items on lists fro other websites, but I don't rip them off. I add my own items mixed in with those. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

4 Not accept criticism for their actions

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

If you get criticism, you probably deserve it. - gemcloben

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. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I'm getting over 9000 - Chaotixhero

5 Make lists on their political/religious beliefs

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. - Cazaam

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 - Phillip873

Religious debates are pretty much pointless. Let the people decide, and don't be too aggressive with your stance.

I get annoyed by religious comments always getting the most thumbs ups - SpectralOwl

6 Bully fellow TopTenners

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. - MaxAurelius

I know 2 bullies already. And I just joined 3 weeks ago. - NoOreoForU

And there is one user who reported multiple users for "bullying" him while he himself is the most immature user on the site.

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.

7 Troll other users

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. - zxm

These crazy frozen fans troll all of the frozen hate lists and they cannot accept someone hating frozen. - Gamecubesarecool193

SpongeBobSuxx can be found trolling SpongeBob lists all the time. - Goatworlds

Should be #1 - NoOreoForU

8 Make lists about killing people

Those people should get arrested. Unless it's about fictionnal characters. - Eclipsmon

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. - Jasmine21064

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.

Unless It's Dora the Explorer

9 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.

The irony of this visitors comment. - Minecraftcrazy530

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

I Get A lot Of Dislikes For No Reason And I'm Just Saying An Innocent Opinion

10 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. - Cazaam

I do this all the time - gemcloben

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

I do this with practically all my lists. - RiverClanRocks

The Contenders

11 Spam messages to TopTenners about your lists

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. - Eclipsmon

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. - zxm

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

I don't do this and my lists don't receive votes, so epic gamer time yeah - styLIShT

12 Tells others to die

The "This is a good show DIIE" and "That's shows amazing diEe" comments... - Sprightly

If someone do this to me. I'll leave this site. - Userguy44

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

13 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. - Cazaam

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. - keycha1n

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. - RockFashionista

Sometimes when I'm just feeling really lazy, I won't put comments. - theOpinionatedOne

14 Put zero effort into making lists

This Shows I Really AM A Bad User - Oliversky

15 Idolize one TopTenner over the others

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

They actually need a therapist. - Ananya

I idolise Britgirl but I looked at PositronWildhawk and MatrixGuy and a few others before - jmepa1234

I am nowhere near "popular". I joined today so I'm not surprised. - FennikenFan9

16 Spam vote
17 Obsess excessively over their favorite characters

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

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

Is this directed at me? - RiverClanRocks

18 Type in all caps

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

No introduction needed.

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

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

It's not a big deal, but don't overuse it. - Userguy44

19 Whine about everything

Not to be confused with wine. - Merilille

I'm looking at you BigBrotherSucks - bobbythebrony

20 Submit ridiculous items onto lists

I wonder which list has this...

21 Flaunt their fetishes
22 Hate users

I don't "hate" any users in particular, but I do have some, erm, displease, for some users' actions.

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 Threaten other people
25 Rely too much on a gimmick

This is an example of trying to look different from other users when really they're just another user who is the same as the others except they rely on a gimmick such as pretending to be something that they're not. It would be like if I made a new account called MrKitty and made cat jokes in every comment. - Cazaam

26 Nitpick every little thing that bugs them

Personally, you can nitpick, if you consider those nitpick the way they are. For example, having nitpicks about a video game without saying it's bad is okay. - Eclipsmon

27 Treat a certain character like the spawn of Satan

There are tons of visitors AND a few users on here that do this. - IceFoxPlayz

28 Make a list of worst users on TheTopTens

Have to admit, the list wasn't constructive and was a list which was littered with personal attacks. There was little to no thoughtful and constructive discussion taking place there.

Thank God that list got deleted. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

29 Not use constructive criticism
30 Act like a grammar nazi
31 Not read a list's introduction

A list introduction can have important informations, that you should read before voting or commenting. Therefore not reading it is pretty bad. - Eclipsmon

This is what happened to the list of Reasons not to be Gay/Lesbian. Now everyone is acting like idiots thinking that it's made by a homophobe while it wasn't even the purpose of the list.

When people don't read it, a lot of times they'll end up adding something that the list's creator specifically asked not be included. Ask me how I know this! - theOpinionatedOne

32 Overreact over jokes
33 Like dissing TopTenners
34 Never shut up over a stupid opinion
35 Don't look past the "New Lists" tab on the right

This is why if you're lucky enough to have a list stay in that area, the list will become popular. This is because there are a multitude of bad users who don't look any further than that tab. They don't even look at the "Newest" page. - Cazaam

People should at least sift through some of the garbage lists, and look at a few that they like. - Turkeyasylum

36 Create more than 1 account

It's fine to create backups. However, some trolls make 50+ accounts to troll a certain user.

I did (like two others) and I'm surprised how they are on more lists than this one. - AnonymousChick

No... This list is becoming a troll. - NoOreoForU

I don't think this is actually bad. - cosmo

37 Love Justin Bieber

Oh God, this is one reason why TheTopTens suck, they make EVERYTHING associated to JB bad so does his fans. This is just worthless to do it. - Neonco31

It's the rules. Everyone on TheTopTens should hate Justin Bieber! - NoOreoForU

JustinBieberlover is probably a troll, then. - FennikenFan9

38 Bad TopTenners bully bronies

Thanks! Some if us bronies may be bad but not all of us. Can't they just stop treating us like Low Lives?

Bronies Deserve To Be Treated Fairly And Just Like Everyone Else - JPK

They dislike their comments as if they are disliking metal - Neonco31

Before We Start I Am NOT A Brony Some Good TopTenners Don't Like MLP, But At Least They Respect Opinions
Bad TopTenners Are The Cliched You Must Bully People Who Are Different
Sure Bronies Aren't Perfect But Some Are Good

39 Add Justin Bieber to every list

It gets old

JB sucks but isn’t the worst. French Montana and Migos are much worse than him. Stop treating Justin like he’s worse than Hitler.

40 Become unnecessarily edgy
41 Act like they're superior to others
42 Like MattyB
43 Hate Gravity Falls

Many users adopted this logic - Neonco31

WatchMojo Fans

44 Hate rap music

Seriously? Why is this here, this goes against the whole point of the list! - EliHbk

45 Use "cancer", "retard", and "autistic" as insults

I hate it when anyone uses those words. - IceFoxPlayz

46 Make a list of things bad TopTenners do
47 Dislike comments for stupid reasons
48 Make a list with barely any contenders in it

What if there were only supposed to be twelve items? Like best months?

49 Love Dora the Explorer

There is nothing bad about it. I don't like this show. But if someone likes it doesn't mean he/she is bad. - zxm

50 Like My Little Pony

I Like MLP
And I Would Never Bully Anyone
