To wonder what other posters do that really annoy you?

For me it would probably be:

Not reading the OP properly and going off on a tangent
Pulling a thread totally OT in order to have a two way jokey conversation with someone else that goes on for pages and pages
Looking up someone's posting history and saying 'well on 5th April 2006 you said this and now you're saying that.

People who start threads that have been done before wink

For me it's the ones who read the OP then respond without seeing how the thread's moved on (eg. LTB long after the OP's decided to LTB!). Mansplaining pisses me off too.

Not reading the full thread. I know it can be tough when the thread is several pages long but often discussions develop and you discover the OP is only the start of a deeper issue and when a poster comes on and only refers to the original issue it can be frustrating and irrelevant.

people who think everyone has time to read a long thread.
and yes people who drag up past posts

manicbmc Thu 24-Jan-13 10:53:49

People who start threads, get a lot of support, and then don't update - ever.

People who put only half a title follow by "..." and expect you to open their thread to find out what they ar talking about. Fuck off, attention seekers.

Toughasoldboots Thu 24-Jan-13 10:56:26

Competitive misery and royalty threads.

Crinkle77 Thu 24-Jan-13 10:56:57

It's not always poss to read the full thread. What I do at times is just skip through and see what else the OP has written. But sometimes you do just read the original post and your initial reaction is to fire off some sort of response

HoneyDragon Thu 24-Jan-13 10:58:26

Nothing. I love Mumsnet and I love you all.

moans about what other posters post

WorraLiberty Thu 24-Jan-13 11:00:44

People who point out bad spelling - especially when they're losing an argument.

People who only post to tell someone they're in the wrong topic.

People making deliberate typos because they think it's funny.

People who shout LTB without asking for basic information.

That ^ makes me sound like a grumpy cow but those things don't bother me ^that much honestly grin

WorraLiberty Thu 24-Jan-13 11:01:19

Oh, and people who fuck up italics blush

SilentSplendidSun Thu 24-Jan-13 11:01:36

Ahh, that jokey two-way conversation. Does my head in. Fuck off, rude idiots. I know online forums are inherently different to real life, but you REALLY wouldn't carry on a side conversation with someone when the first person is still talking, would ya?

Lovecat Thu 24-Jan-13 11:01:50

People who can't be arsed to RTFT



Saying 'End of' and then getting annoyed when others point out that it isn't actually the end of.

People who leap on the one deluded sockpuppet who agrees with them in a 40 page solid YABU thread and says 'see? I'm RIGHT!'

People who say 'bored of'. Yes, it's petty and I would never directly call someone on it <gets para about someone checking posting history now> but every time I read it, it feels like nails down a blackboard. It's BORED WITH!

RandallPinkFloyd Thu 24-Jan-13 11:06:06

Misreading the OP, going off on a massive yet completely irrelevant rant then insisting the OP meant what they think she meant rather than the actual words she said.

KirstyoffEastendersweirdtoplip Thu 24-Jan-13 11:08:38

People saying loose instead of lose.

Women who live up to the cliche of female behaviour, i.e. bitching & bullying.

Saying 'D'H etc.

FunnysInLaJardin Thu 24-Jan-13 11:10:01

I rarely RTFT before posting except when it is on a serious topic. I usually just jump in with some nonsence and then read after. And I LOVE to go off on a tangent in the right circs.
Stuff that annoy me include 'first world problem' - shut the fuck up

FeckOffCup Thu 24-Jan-13 11:10:46

moans about what other posters post

^ This, it winds me up when people come onto a thread just to post "oh really OP is that all you have to worry about in life" when clearly they have nothing better to do either than sit around posting snippy comments.

BupcakesAndCunting Thu 24-Jan-13 11:13:37

- Finding offence over FUCK ALL. I'm not talking about finding offence in racist/disablist/sexist/benefitist (oh yes that is a term) posts but you know the ones? Like the middle class poverty thread yesterday where the OP got slaughtered for using the word "poverty" rather than "hard-up"

- Racist/sexist/disablist/benefitist/homophobic twattery. Get to fuck.

- Where a few people on a thread have developed a bit of a camaraderie and some titty-lipped Glenda comes on and accuses everyone of being cliquey or arse-kissy. Nooooooooo, it's just that you ARE allowed to find things funny and you ARE allowed to like other posters.

- When an OP has seen the light, apologised and admitted it then some huffy thunderpants comes on and says "OP you are a BITCH HTH" Makes you look stupid, not snippy and no-nonsense.

MrsBungleBear Thu 24-Jan-13 11:14:58

When people only post to tell the op they're in the wrong topic like they are the mumsnet police.

Also can't stand the grammar/spelling police.

The irony of this post underneath your username is not lost, Kirsty wink grin

YY to "If that's your only problem..." Didn't realise that you could only post about life-or-death catasrophes on MN.

SillyBeardyDaddyman Thu 24-Jan-13 11:16:31

Eating cream crackers too loudly. Chew with your bloody mouth closed Honey!

Amykins Thu 24-Jan-13 11:16:31

Posters who say "no" ? at the end of a point. Like, "I am right, no?" Just sounds so affected. Also too many exclamation marks.

MagdalenVanstone Thu 24-Jan-13 11:16:58

pls can you tell me what mansplaining is?
