    The absolute impossibility of discussing a female talent without someone making it about their sex appeal.

    Nothing rises to the level of a pet peeve for me. It's a public forum and out of anyone's control. So don't sweat it.

    One thing that rates a :rolleyes: is macho posturing. Time to grow up, and it's not like there are lots of ladies to impress. Oh right, it doesn't impress women either :lol:

    I see what you did there. There is plenty of comedy here if you know where to find it.

    I can't stand this gif, I usually just close the thread when I see it.

    My peeve - I don’t like when people post gifs. It is unwelcome snark. I come here to escape the real world

    People who create a thread and ask for opinions, then get offended when people offer their opinions.

    I'll take responsibility for this one because I realize I'm more uptight than some about it, nonetheless a peeve though - blurring fact and speculation, or opinion.

    I also realize lots of what is discussed here is highly subjective in the first place, there's often no way to verify that the guy on the other end of a conversation can even play a damn guitar, and that we tend to discuss performance of instruments as though it is a function of one isolated parameter, rather than a product of a complex and interactive system. Have to take a lot of what's said here with a big grain of salt and in good humor whenever possible. None of it's life or death, and there's really no reason to be here if we're not gonna be friends anyway.

    Systems are a big part of my job though, and for a number of reasons I'm big on trust. I work pretty hard to maintain it in my interaction with people: If I tell you something's true, you can believe I'm pretty certain and qualified to understand that it is. If I'm not confident, I'll throw you a "I'm not sure, but" or some other clear distinction. Not gonna diminish your trust in me by talking out my ass, because trying to operate without it (trust, not my ass) is miserable.

    All that stuff is my deal and there's no reason you should care about it or hold the same concerns as me. But, for god's sake, many truths are widely understood, obvious, and easily verified. Are we interested in promoting correct and valuable information, or just talking the most?

    Yep. Or the thread asking for advice on ________ only to be met with all the reasons they should get _____ instead.
