Top 10 Things Currently Polluting

The Top Ten

1 Repetitive content

Music lists, especially ones about bands and/or metal, come to mind. - Jasmine21064

Like the "Top 10 Moments from (insert disney movie here)" list that are made every day.

I's getting harder to make more lists so I kinda get it. - DCfnaf

Exactly how many sub-genres of metal can there be, and how many variations of the same list can be made?

2 Immaturity

A certain butt-hurt user who disrespects opinions and can't take criticism. - DCfnaf

Oh dear, It's so common... - Ananya

Most hardcore fans and haters have this problem - Neonco31

Certain Users Can't Accept Not Everyone Is Going To Like A Certain Mediocre Disney Movie - VideoGamefan5

Why Are You Still Capitalizing Every Single Word Of Your Comments? - xandermartin98

3 Pointless comparison lists

Best songs between Metallica, One Direction, Cannibal Corpse, and Evanescence. At Number one is Invisible Kid Metallica - SoldierOfFortune

In my opinion, they’re actually funny, including the classic Adventure Time > Ebola one. - JoeBoi

These are completely ridiculous - Randomator

Some of these are made by trolls - ElSherlock

4 Low quality lists/posts

And that's why I don't rush out posts when I'm making them. Quality is more important than quantity, and emphasis on quantity will make you and your lists/posts bad. - DCfnaf

Quality over Quantity always - Randomator

I used to rush lists, now I take time - iliekpiez

The addition of HQ Lists is a good thing as now you can actually make good content and have your stats improve - styLIShT

5 Disrespect and close-mindedness to different opinions

Disagreeing with other's opinions is not "close-mindedness." And you know what, you don't have to respect everyone's opinions. You should, however, respect the person and his/her freedom to have said opinions. I.e. that means not insulting someone for having an opinion you believe to be wrong or stupid. Not only is that a poor way to argue, it really shows you do not have a well-thought out counter argument and ruins what credibility you might have in the discussion. Come up with a good, well-reasoned counter argument, free of insults, free of emotion, and we can have a civilized, levelheaded discussion. But this being the internet, and this site being full of teenagers, things usually get out of hand. And, you know, everyone has moments where they slip up.

That describes most of us - Neonco31

Only my opinion needs to be respected, but not yours.

They disrespect my opinion on Trump :( - Maddox121

6 Lack of comedic/thoughtful content

This item is funny. We all have different types of humour. Who's to say what's funny and what isn't? Sometimes I add humour to my lists / comments, only to be told to "grow up" or "You have a great sense of humour" No one can please everyone. - Britgirl

Everyone is too serious and takes everything to heart. Are people seriously bashing BTDR lists? They're just troll lists meant to be funny. - DCfnaf

Well, now. Some of us appreciate Britgirl's sense of "humour." She '"senses" it, just gets a little lost tryin' t'find it;). Kidding. It is one of those British traits, though, which may be difficult for the uninitiated to fully savor. Fortunately, some of us misspent a significant number of heartbeats snorkin' to that late, great comedic genius, Dr. Benjamin Hill. So it's not like a completely different language or anything, almost. love ya, T:)).

I am single-handedly keeping this site funny. No point in denying. - Puga

7 Making lists targeting other users but not admitting to it

It's the anti - insult - YourWaifuSucks

8 People not open to debate
9 People dishing but not taking

I can think of a certain Zootopia hater (at least for now, they will probably like it next week) this applies to

Two people come to mind when I think of this. One contradicts his username all the time while the other is a pretentious and indecisive 13-year old. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Wow, I'm thinking of someone - DCfnaf

What does that mean?

10 People trying to make this site into a single-personality fest

Based on the site's history, there was diversity in opinions at the start but today many people dictate what people should like and hate. You can't hate metal, anime, Gravity Falls, or manga and you can't like Justin Bieber, Pop music, and other things they consider bad! - Neonco31

You get slapped in the face for not liking: Sword Art Online, Anime, Heavy Metal, Gravity Falls and Some other cartoons.

You also get slapped in the face for liking: Dora, Justin Beiber, Frozen, Donald Trump - YourWaifuSucks

Every person on here feels the same to me. Everyone hates Bieber, Frozen, Dora, Peach, enough said. Even Disney1994 thinks it is boring that every opinion is basically the same. - DCfnaf

I don't like Dora, metal, or Justin Bieber, but I like Gravity Falls, Pop, and anime. I think Donald Trump is okay, and I watch Frozen every once in a while. - IcetailofWishClan

The Contenders

11 People getting butthurt when criticized

I break laws by writing the word "law" and putting it on glass windows then asking Nicki Minaj to grind on it. - AlphaQ

Some metalheads on here are getting extremely butthurt at the fact that metal is #45 on worst music genres, and are telling other genre fans to die, like how low can you go? - styLIShT

Disney1994 in a nutshell - Neonco31

This, is definitely the most concerning! some people really need to grow up!

12 Treating opinions as facts

I hate when people do this! It is like "oh I hate this show so no one should be allowed to enjoy it! ". Just respect opinions, please.

That comment on one list "MLP is not a great show though many people think it is! " just makes me sick inside. Because if that statement is true, it would mean EVERY T.V. show would be objectively bad in the first place, even Gravity Falls and the Simpsons - Neonco31

13 Unnecessary censorship

Stop being overly sensitive - Randomator

Scrap censorship please. - Userguy44

14 Adult babies
15 Lack of originality

I'm not mentioning who, but one particular user has plagiarized multiple lists from...drum roll...WATCHMOJO. I'm not joking. This is real.

Yeah, too many lists about music and T.V. shows. That’s why I like to make lists about history, geography, whatever. - JoeBoi

In my eyes, almost every single new list out there is mainly about this one topic: Music

For the love of god, please tone down on making lists about music, it's gotten so annoying and boring.

And yes, the only list I made is about music, but I'm soon making another list that's not about music. - wrests

16 Pathetic drama

One huge example of this is the drama between fans of heavy metal and heavy metal's haters - YourWaifuSucks

There's actually a significant amount of dram within metal subgenre communities too - styLIShT

17 Copycats
18 Spam comments

"Cough", Lion King Hater, "Cough" - JPK

19 Haters

Discord1 in a nutshell. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Who cares? Haters exist anyway it is not like you can convince them to like the thing you love - YourWaifuSucks

20 admin

Stop. - ProPanda

Randomator for admin. - Userguy44

You would do a lot better than the currently ones. It may not be easy, but I think you would have great ideas and a better policy. - Userguy44

He’s not good whatsoever - Randomator

Admin is just a manchild who can't take criticism and a nanny who defends his children when they get criticized - YourWaifuSucks

I'm surprised how these comments (and accounts) are still doing fine - styLIShT

21 People jumping on the bandwagon

Honestly I did bandwagon a couple (if not many) of times. Like, people say overrated as a reason to hate something, Who should win the Election, the annoying Justin Bieber joke (to be honest, he's changed a lot since 2016 and some of his newer songs can be decent at best), and even hating Disney1994's favorite shows just to make him accept different opinions - Neonco31

Nickelback Cough Cough! - Userguy44

One time people did that to me! I kind of deserved it though, I used to be a really bad user who didn't like people who don't like Halsey...but that's the only bad thing I did. I was new within my first week of joining people did that to me :(

22 Bullies
23 People hating on Justin Bieber

I don't see anything wrong about this, but trying to kill him? Are you kidding me? All he ever did was write terrible songs. I know we all hate him, but do he really annoy you to the point of wanting him dead? Jeez, when will thereever be a time of where I hate him in peace without TheTopTens ruining my hatred, because this site makes me feel sorry for that pathetic wretch... - Gehenna

Seriously stop it already - Randomator

24 Lists created in retaliation to other lists

If a list has a title to the effect of "why [insert list] is inaccurate" or "why [insert list] is wrong", it falls into this category.

25 Dimash Kudaibergen Dinmukhamed Kanatuly Kudaibergenov, commonly known as Dimash Kudaibergen (born May 24th, 1994) is a Kazakh singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Dimash is best known as a contestant of Chinese talent show "Singer 2017" where he was declared a runner-up. He is also known for possessing a wide more.

Dimash fans come here from his sites to vote; so what?

26 Tweens who try to act mature

It's better than being immature.

27 People wanting a double standard

That is hypocrisy in a nutshell - Neonco31

Posters here are the very definition of "double standard".

Yup - DCfnaf

I like everyone, as long as it’s me. (It’s a joke, I have to say this because people will take it seriously, if I didn’t say this) - MrCoolC

28 Trolls

I've seen the movie lol - micahisthebest

A lot of trolls have been abusive lately. They aren't funny like BTDR is. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Some are okay - Randomator

One example in particular being StrikingStreak. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

29 Jackie Evancho bias

She might be a good singer, but do I need to hear 20 comments on one list about how she's some sort of musical goddess and be dismissed as a "pop culture pleb" if I don't care? - Swellow

You mean "people who vote"?

Yes, because it's so normal for a single item to receive hundreds of votes within the span of a few hours. - floral

It's hard to get away from this!

Just too much of this

30 Hipsters

As I add this item, I'm thinking of a certain someone who seems to think that a work he likes gaining a notion of popularity is against his virtue of decency, coupled with the fact he then goes on caps-locked rants on how the work he once loved is now inferior in every way to what he has shifted onto now. - Swellow

One day, us hipsters will prevail. - djpenquin999

31 Elite rustlers

These users think it's funny to tick off other users. Yeah, you guys are overrated and unfunny. - DCfnaf

Says Chuck as he makes atrocious sandwiches and hypocritically calls God's reviews pretentious. - DCfnaf

God yes. This really needs to be in first place. - Element119

Metts = Porn Addict who pants Kirby and tweaks like Nicki Minah. - AlphaQ

Years later, all of that is changed... - Kevinsidis

32 People abusing the flagging system

Comments getting flagged and removed for the dumbest reasons

Because of that, I got a warning. - MrCoolC

33 Harambe "Harambe" (27th May 1999 - 28th May 2016) was the name of a male western lowland gorilla in the Cincinnati Zoo who was shot and killed by a staff member in 2016 due to child negligence, sparking public outrage and later a revered internet meme.
34 Poor grammar/spelling

I het pur gramer and spel ing it's socks. - TheFourthWorld

Ya’ no won lyks bad gramr and spelon )

35 Wars
36 Hashtag abusers
37 Using other users as targets
38 Clone lists
39 People just being fake in general

People who act nice on their profile description and then add mean replies to your comments and then delete them and call you rude and annoying when you did nothing, and they told you to delete your account and leave TheTopTens. Yep, that happened to me.

40 Users retiring
41 People who use this site for the wrong purposes
42 Fakers
43 90's Kids
44 Weaboos

To be honest, the users whining about the weebs are honestly much more vocal, annoying and repetitive than the "weebs" have been. And not to mention, only a vocal minority even count as "weebs". Liking anime or Japanese stuff doesn't make a weeb, but over obsessing over Japanese culture does. - Swellow

45 Sock puppet accounts

Well, you can't make sock puppet accounts using the same email address. - JoeBoi
