We all have them. What certain things do you notice on the Internet, be forums, email, IMs, whatever, that piss you off?

Regarding forums, I specifically hate when two guys get into an 'argument' (usually over something stupid and/or trivial) and one decides to be an ******* and says something a long the lines of

Person A: Look just give up. You're just trying not to make yourself look bad.

Person B: Lol, no, more like I'm trying to stop laughing so hard at your pathetic arguments.

I see this so many ****ing times. They are obviously not laughing and if they are they really just need to calm down. They adopt this holier-than-thou attitude and think it's oh so badass to let the other person know they are laughing at their arguments.

Like. Seriously. Shut the hell up.

I hate it when people use:

"U" instead of "You"
"R" instead of "Are"
When they don't use the apostrophe in words such as "don't", "you're", etc.

I just bugs the hell out of me, is it so hard to type it out properly?

I'll post some more when I think of them.

@ Chakra: I'm using that line in all of my arguments from now on.

I hate internet fads. Some can be funny at first (some of the 300 images made me laugh) but others start off annoying (like the "9000! WTDF?!" crap) and become exponentially more annoying as time progresses and it makes me want to cut open my cat, peel back the chest flaps and mail her to some old woman with a note that says, "MR. KITTLES LOVE YOU THIS MUCH!"

Just because it's the internet doesn't mean people should use bad grammar or spell things in a completely idiotic way.

Bad grammar and spelling.

Can't stand it.

Thrusts me into a blind, homicidal rage.

I hate the word noob.

I hate how people on the internet claim they are someone they aren't.

I hate classifications and ranks of internet gaming skill.

I hate it when people just can't speak properly or use proper grammar (even though i'm finnish, people can understand me, even if i sometimes make some typing mistakes. But this: WAT R TIME NOAW?! Is something that i hate the most, which makes me burst in to fury. Heck, if esf forums would have Flame Forums, i'd so be kicking their asses there! >:D).
Another thing i hate is , that people make these threads: " WHEN WILL THAT AND THIS COME OUT PLZ PLZ TELL ME COME ON PLZ PLZ PLZ!!!1111"
And not reading the Faq/Stickies, etc..
Also, i hate people that call players as noob, when somebody is a little low on stats, and just positioning him/herself to 'Holier than thee' Statement, While in real life, the person who's saying it, is itself a moron, and a guy, who nobody likes, propably even gets beaten up by some people for being a smartass all the time.

Of course not, some of them actually go on and categorize themselves as smart (Well, apparently).
