On a political/current news they literally litter the subforum with about three to four new topics a day, they only post a URL or maybe a clip form the article and then the URL, they offer no opinion on it, no other input and expect others to carry on the thread dialogue for them, only puncturing with a post that is somewhat peripheral to the OP.
Meanwhile, really great thread discussions are pushed down and eventually abandoned because they no longer appear on the first page.
These people really annoy me.
Also what annoys me, are the posters who will carry on a running joke that only they themselves get for 5 fucking months. Honestly, I am so sick of hearing about pizza paddles and how you are a dom when the discussion is about democracy in the Middle East. Get a fucking clue, you gawddamn attention whore, you are just not that interesting.
Also banal repetition is annoying. Are you really just not that clever?

Yeah I think someone made a good suggestion way back called Paper Boy or News boy? I'm too lazy to check for sure. It can be nice if most people are mature enough to understand other people aren't going to have the same idea about something you do - but these days, it can when not related to the forums main purpose see the forum spiral, unless of course it's in some random not so serious area, and conversation stays light hearted or terse at the very worst.
In-jokes are funny for a couple of weeks to a months, and then only a limited number of times afterwards, so that most of the forum not in on it, don't get continually distracted by the consistent noise, and the "joke" doesn't wear out.
Depends on the repetition, I don't mind it from someone who is beating down a Ferrous Cranus. _________________ The important thing is knowing who owns the fence
