    Here are a couple of mine about posts here at the links. Not that any of you give a good damn about my pet peaves here, but guess what? I'm posting them anyway!

    1. People using the damn smiley's too much!

    The smiles are cool but some of you use them waaaaaaay too much. Some of the posts are hard to read because of a goofy-assed smile after almost every sentence.

    2. People who don't know the difference between the words "then" and "than".

    Ex.1: DLR is better THAN Sammy. not "then"

    Ex.2: When VH releases the new CD with DLR THEN we will all be happy. not "than"

    Yeah it sounds petty but its still annoying.
    Especially when someone is putting down someone elses intelligence in a post, and then uses the wrong spelling.

    My pet peave is...when people say "me and my friend" when it should be "my friend and I."

    heh, ok, here are some of mine then-

    1. If I see another topic, or hear it mentioned that "everybody just needs to relax", I might throw my laptop out the window. Its great that somebody has come to this great epiphany on their own, but to get up on a horse and preach gets under my skin a little.

    2. Same thing for "I'm not listening to, or believing anything until I hear it directly from the band". That ones not quite as bad, but jeesh, I hear it so often its almost like some people have put it on a tape recorder or have auto piloted a response thats good for every thread.

    I guess that I am just not fond of advice. As with all pet peeves, they are MY problem. Please dont avoid a post or topic of mine just because that is what you would say. Those things are really fine, just annoying to ME is all.

    Oh, and Blue eyed...

    You may occasionally find me making these kind of mistakes; but keep in mind that my native language is not english. These kind of grammar twists are not easy sometimes.

    As for my pet peeves, well, long signatures that have 20+ lines in it.

    I get "irked" when I read a post that says:

    "This topic has been debated time after time and I'm ending it- I got the last word and my opinion is the best"......er...

    something to that effect!!!!

    Got it Doc. I was half kidding anyway...I sometimes like to annoy people by correcting their grammer even though my own is not perfect.
    but, yeah, I'm with ya on the guys that have signatures longer than most posts...I've read 'em all once, ain't that enough?!?!?!

    Smileys - yeah I overuse them. But it's a habit I got into a long time ago elsewhere on the net when people were taking me too seriously. It's an interesting experiment to use them more or less than usual, people tend to freak out and think something is up.

    What else? People who correct grammer (sic) when the meaning is obvious. I always notice "should of" in place of "should've" for some reason.

    And echoing some stuff already said. People who say "this topic has been done to death" when others are quite happily debating/discussing. Don't like then don't read.

    "everyone relax" - chimed in by someone who obviously can't read since usually everyone involved is relaxed and joking.

    Everyone else who has posted to this thread

    People who take things too seriously

    What really annoys me is when someone types a LONG string of letters together and fucks up the thread so you then have to scroll back and forth to read anything.

    Like this (sorry, but I have to demonstrate)!

    AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRRRRGH!!

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I think what Bassman just demonstrated is the actual cause of the threads stretching out like this.

    I just re-read my post Glenn. It kinda sounded like I was being a jerk to you. I didn't mean it to come out that way. You have helped me with some tech. stuff etc, and I didn't want you to think I was being an asshole to you.


    Still curious about my question though. Out

    Me and my friend are reading all these pet peeves, and we just want to say that everyone just needs to relax!

    When the VH announcement comes out (and I'll only believe it when I see or hear it from Edward himself calling me on my telephone ), than and only than will we know for sure that the reunion is on. So I hope that clears it up for everyone and rather then arguing about all these peeves, I hope that I've finally put these issues to rest.

    Can I get a Woooooooohoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo !!!!!!!!!!! from the audience!
