I was watching a documentary, the narator was explaining some facts and events. She was totaly drowned out by the thunderous, meaningless background music. Why are the people that make these documentaries so stunned that they think that racket is needed. IDIOTS. :purefury:

Just because someone graduated high school don't mean they are smart. I have met many grade 8ers who could beat the pants off one who went the whole mile in any conversation or forum. In fact I have met many who have studied past high school that have no clue.

posters who have 20 plus lines of text with no paragraphs!
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything. I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete douchebags.

Or capitals, punctuation and full of spelling errors!

In other words unintelligible.

Posters, whose "signatures" are too long.
I don't care what they say about you, I think you're a nice person.

After trying to read in the forums this morning I will reiterate that inability to quote properly and an inadequate grasp of the English language (which renders whatever the poster was attempting to say completely incomprehensible) are my two big pet peeves. I will go elsewhere for a while, at least until my eyes stop bleeding . . .

People who park in the bike lane (saw twelve outside a church today).
People who park in the parents with infant parking yet have no children.

Slow computers. People who don't replace the toilet paper roll.
