    I gotcha cew...I also see no point in announcing yourself as a long time lurker in a brand new post...kinda feels like they're doing the whole AW thing.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Pet Peeves - TK edition : See, that's totally fine with me. I mainly recognize people by sigs or avatars, so I'm do the same thing. But it's the whole making an intro post and saying that you are a long time lurker that gets me. I refuse to believe that if they are truly a long time lurker that they don't have at least one favorite and one poster that bugs the shiit out of them. Even if they only say "the girl with the whatever in her sig". Ya know?

    I don't know, this is kind of a pet peeve for me.  I was lurking for quite some time before I posted and I don't see what the point is in listing who I liked/disliked.  Sometimes I think the whole "intro post" thing gets out of hand--it's a message board.

    Also, I really don't like it when a popular reg says something ridiculous, but no one calls them on it because they are well liked. I think the board is more interesting when friends disagree with eachother and can express their opposing view points.

    I agree with this also. And I think SB posters do a good job of maintaining balanced, rational attitudes (even if we disagree) while some other boards get so emotional and way out of hand. At that point, it's like living in a sorority house, and everyone's PMSing.

    For me, it helps me get to know them because you can tell a lot about a person by knowing what type of personality they are drawn too. For instance, I probably attract the more silly/stupid sense of humor type people where jasmine or mery may attract those that like to debate and talk about current events.

    Cew, suicide. There have been lots of posts talking about it, directing people to threads with stories about it, someone seeing a victim, someone joking about doing it - I just have a hard time with it. I do IRL too. And I think once I notice one, I notice all.

    I see what you're saying.  I just think it may come across as super-bitchy to introduce myself and then say "By the way, I can't stand X,Y, and Z."  Seems like it would cause pointless drama.  But I'm new here, so maybe I don't know. :)

    I don't think I've seen anyone start their intro post with I love.... and I hate .... Sometimes, I've seen them say they like someone right off, but usually the who you hate answer comes from being asked. Usually by me. ;P

    [QUOTE]WWhen people pick at small spelling or grammatical errors.
    Posted by Lenore2010[/QUOTE]

    When I see things like this, when it's clearly NOT a typo, it's hard for me <em>not </em>to say something. If someone seems to think that the writing "SINCE" is the equivalent of writing "SENSE" it makes me die a little on the inside, and my inner teacher doesn't want to be mean about it, I just want to educate that masses. To me, that's not even a small error. To me, that's someone who REALLY needs to learn basic grammar and spelling. ;)

    And about the suicide thing--if you're joking about something like this, you must be majorly malformed.  That's sick.
  • Options
    But JessandTrav, do you really think you (the collective you) are educating the masses when spelling errors are pointed out? For the most part, it probably puts the person on the defensive and / or turns the off completely. And I'm not sure that I've ever seen them pointed out in a way that is not rather catty (and I don't know that I've ever seen you do it), so I just don't buy the "I'm educating them" excuse.
  • Options
    I want to think of my own TK pet peeve, and not piggy back others.

    Oh, I have one. That didn't take long.

    I can't stand when a newbie has their personal email address for a username, and when they get reminded about internet safety, they get defensive. Dude, we're just trying to help you steer clear of the creepy old man in his tighty-whities.

    I'm with Missy on this one. Why would you intentionally start a thread about a suicide you witnessed or was someone you knew? That's the kind of thing I'd talk to a counselor about, not a group of internet strangers. I know there is a lot of NWR stuff here, but I don't think suicide is an appropriate topic for TK.

    And it bugs me when posters don't come back to defend their ridiculous posts and use the excuse "I didn't come back because I have a LIFE!". Oh please. No. You're just a pussy or needed the extra time to think of the most super awesome-est comeback ever.

    No, definitely not, but I try. Again, it's the inner teacher, and it depends on WHAT was even misspelled.

    If the person spells "weird" as "wierd" I'm not going to say anything, (I really never say anything anyway because people get defensive) because that could easily be a simple typo. I type fast and forever find typos in what I type, for example, I just typed "type" as "tpye"....see what I mean?

    But if someone is using THE WRONG WORD repeatedly, if drives me crazy. I seldom say anything, because it does always come across as catty, but sometimes, I just wish people would learn that magic of homophones. I think that's when it bothers me the most. The wrong "their/there/they're" "you're/your" "since/sense/cents" "weather/whether"...you get my point.

    So I guess it's not spelling, it's grammar, and not over a misplaced comma, but over the wrong word altogether. :)

    A lot fo these things do annoy me (especially because I am an English teacher), but I honestly don't think that pointing them out makes a difference.  It's sad that they don't know the difference between words, but they came here for advice (advise <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-wink.gif" border="0" alt="Wink" title="Wink" />) and a grammar lesson just isn't going to stick.

    I can see your point about the repeated butchering of the English language. I usually don't care about that stuff, but if it's all.the.time, it does make me crazy. I just tend to put that person on ignore mode so that my eyes don't bleed.
