I might alienate some of you but I’ve just gotta complain a bit. I’ve got this running list of things that bug me when it comes to the interwebs. Here. I’ll share:
- When people only comment on other blogs if that blogger comments on theirs.
- Not putting the full post feed in the reader.
- Too many memes.
- When people share their own post via Reader.
- Bloggers who steal other peoples posts.
- Fucking spam.
- Posts that explain why the blogger isn’t blogging. Just. . .don’t blog.
- People who Twitter back and forth to each other incessantly. It’s called instant messenger. Get it.
- A million and one networking sites under the sun and I can barely manage my blog, Twitter, My Space and Facebook. I can’t keep up!
- Don’t get me started on Facebook.
- When people share their own post via Reader. Oops! Said that already.
- Blog comment sections that require me to sign up with my own password or ask me to sign in with my info every single time I visit the site. Why can’t it remember me? Phooey!
- Never act like I exist even though I’ve been commenting for months.
- Too many flashy ads.
- Light print on a dark background. I have bad eyesight. This causes me further eye strain.
- Go into great detail about some dream you had.
- Be rude while hiding behind an anonymous comment.
- Really, really, really long posts. Especially if they are a) boring, b) ramble all over the place and/or c) are about some dream you had (see #17).
- Complain that you don’t get enough comments in your posts.
While I’m going on and on about my annoyances, can I just say that I thought August Rush was a huge disappointment. At first I was giving it the benefit of the doubt. . .but it became glaringly obvious within 15 minutes into the film that no amount of Keri Russell or Jonathan Rhys Meyers could save the shmaltzy writing. And Robin Williams? WTH?! Maybe the story could have come off on a theater stage but it just did not work on the big screen for me. It was like Annie (which the kid in me loves) meets Mr. Holland’s Opus (a personal favorite) meets Oliver Twist (a classic) but it sucked. I’m all for child prodigies and feeling the music and reuniting families torn apart by lies but come on! Why did it have to be so contrived and unbelievably sappy?
Care to share your internet peeves or a movie that totally disappointed you?
Let’s bitch together!
