People who struggle with plural possessives bug the hell out of me, especially when they do it in their signatures.

My vocabulary in english sucks so I try to focus more on the grammar side, and that side sucks too. Damn...

I just try to remember the effect is more or less the noun form, whereas affect is the verb.

Unless you are trying to bring something about, IE effect a change.

Your a moran... eh, I got nothing. I'm at peace with the Universe and won't get up in arms over these kind of banalities any longer.

People who refuses to use any punctuation, however, that's a completely different thing. I can overdo it sometimes, throwing in as many commas as I can fit, but to just ramble on without any kind of structure to the sentences, that's just insane. Insane I say!

Edit: Another thing I can't stand are when people are unable to quote someone correctly. I mean, how difficult can it be?

People who enforce grammar on the internet. If someone honestly cared about speaking proper English they would have taken the time to proofread their post. Worth noting that was going to be my pet peeve before reading that about half the pet peeves are grammar related.

Also agree with the "and it's not even close" sentiment. It's occasionally warranted but usually it's a reasonable argument and some r tard walks in with that line and looks like an arse.

I hate when people argue with me that I really want Crosby on the Flyers, and that I'm just jealous (which is every Pens fans excuse). While I admit he's a great player, I, however, really do not want him on any of my teams. I even put him on my exclude list on my hockey draft list in case I get stuck with the auto-draft. I really just don't like him, and it has nothing to do with the fact that he's on the Penguins. His face and his buckteeth just irk the hell out of me.

Two- Number.

There- Place
They're- They are
Their- Possessive. Something belonging to someone

Aside from affect/ effect like above, my biggest problem is than/ then. I know how to seperate the two, but sometimes I'm really just not sure when to use which one.

Since this is not a university blackboard and adherence to MLA standards isn't necessary I tend to overlook things even my own errors..however one that has always kind of bothered me is when people write "suppose to" instead of "supposed to"

I'm annoyed when a new thread with an interesting topic that deserves its own space for discussion is immediately combined into a thread with hundreds of posts full of unrelated discussion. Or when people immediately suggest such a thread should be combined with another or closed (because it was already discussed before!); do people just come on here to enforce rules or do they want to see and talk about things that interest them?

I'll amend this to clarify that I'm talking about hockey related discussion. I hate off topic bs too.

I get peeved when there's a thread with an interesting topic that almost automatically gets turned into a meme fest. Sometimes it's funny, but most of the time it just pisses me off.

Ooh, and also, you wanna know what really peeves me. All you *******s in the obseqious thread that constantly bring up computer ****, and it goes on for 10 ****ing pages. I hate it.

Haha, I skipped that entire Apple debate, man that was long.

You and Charlie should start discussing make-up or something and make everyone read through that in the OBT as penance.

Actually it is, it's an opinion, just because yours is different doesn't make it a fact.

"This"
Did you really need to post if all your going to do is agree with someone and not add anything to the conversation? Anyone that posts "this" as a response is a moron.

"/thread"
Are you a Mod? No. Your an idiot and I hate you.



Edit: I fully expect someone to reply...

This. And it's not even close.
/thread.
Sorry if I ruined your oh so original joke.
Not a pet peeve, but I LOVE when people makes comments such as the bolded.

****, that'd be a short discussion. I wear it but I couldn't hold more than a 30 second conversation about it!

Because Ovechkin fits Philadelphia's personality more than anyone, but since he plays for a different team some people say he sucks, even though they'd wanna beat his meat if he wore the Orange and Black.

I'm typing on an iPhone. If it doesn't fix my punctuation I really don't care at all. People in a debate that are clearly losing and turn to pointing out grammar just sound like children when they don't get what they want and just start calling you names. I'm not referring to you but it happens around here a lot.

People who try to argue in completely improper English and using AIM-speak give me no valid reason to listen to them.

spelling the players' names wrong is a bad one, especially if they play for your fav team
