    I'm shocked you forgot to include excessive emoji usage.

    It’s usually a post that follows the status quo, lacks intellectual conscience, or attempts to undermine facts.

    My pet peeve is when someone is interested/curious about gear and they ask for people's experience.

    1. There's always the person that says "I have no experience, but" - How is this helpful
    2. People posting in response with no regard to what OP was asking for

    So common, I no longer get burned up by it. ;)

    I'm deeply offended by post from people who don't love and appreciate Home Owners Association rules.

    Gotta be number 1. It can really stockpile, too. I don’t blame people for being grammar-poor, or poll-clueless. And, I often am that guy.

    The absolute worst though, are those poor misguided souls, who lacking any understanding of the game post about the wasted space, the utter silliness of the game of golf, and how they would rather lay on the couch, give their nose a much needed picking, and guzzle booze.

    I don't have any pet peeves with other people's posts. There's 8,000,000,000 people on the planet, so there's a wide range to be expected. Some posts are worthless, but so what? They are only annoying if you chose to give them importance. Some folks here are always worth attention, and that's why I stick around.

    PP not listed. Mine is posters who post their gripes about their irritation with the thread. What compelled them to click on it in the first place? Did they have no control over themselves? Why do they need to voice that a question has been discussed to excess? Is there a shortage of zeros and ones? Take cover if you dare try to continue a discussion thread that’s got some time on it.

    You guys, this wasn't and isn't meant to be taken seriously
    I will suggest that if you truly take issue with what some stranger is saying online...

    you might be doing it wrong

    There are minor annoyances aplenty, certainly.
    Such is life in the first world :)

    When someone recommends gear they like, with no regard for what the OP is looking for.

    Q: Looking for a small inexpensive practice amp that I can play quietly at home without waking the baby.

    The poor grammar and spelling is what drives me up a wall. I do not mind the odd misplaced comma, but when someone cannot write like a functioning adult it concerns me. I will not take the time to read a long post that is one rambling paragraph with minimal punctation, missing capitalization, or a complete disregard for conventional sentence structure, whether it be a post on here, Quora, or any other site with user-generated content. For goodness sake, at least proofread your post.
