Default Annoying forum behaviour

We seem to have a new forum statistic:

Quote:
Threads: 10,468; Posts: 212,073; Members: 2,297; Annoying Members: 4¾; Active Members: 215
How it's calculated, and how the individual annoying members are (evidently) divided up, might be a subject for speculation.

In any case, annoying forum behaviour is something many of us will have an opinion on. Why not talk about it here?

But first: let me suggest that no-one mentions any forum member by name when referring to annoying behaviour.

Here's my idea of annoying behaviour:
Someone starts a pointless thread which also contains plenty of potential for flame wars, then covers himself by imposing a draconian rule so that any unpleasantness can't be called his fault.

Who else finds things annoying on the forum? What are they?

I'm not sure I can agree with that. Do you find that annoying? I sure do. I also find it annoying when people are annoyed with themselves.

P.S. I also find it annoying that the supermods still have not named a smiley after me. Yes, I understand that I'm amazing (and annoying) and I defy capture by a few pixels, but still...

If you know that it's "nonsense" and that we have to "[put] up with" it, then why not discontinue it in favor of lucid, useful posting and discussion, hmm? Thanking us for putting up with your nonsense is like hitting someone over the head with a stick and thanking them for not hitting you back. You know, vacuous thanks, and all that...

hello x33, you might explore ?

that we can not and will not but "duty "
your questions sound like program logic conformist,

we educated
that the only grass "runways" drugs which are known
to those fields sports,
remember ... you have previously sent and
how discussion is impossible to change the rules of true "1"!

( note well,
the "first " is not chaotic ...
but in order to be perfect forever,
what this means ? )
