People who write their name at the end of each post, especially when their username is also that name.

Completely agreed.

Totally agree. Or "Cheers" and stuff like that.

Some posters inexplicably seem to uppercase the usernames. For example, Bgas, Pixletwin, Guitarfool2002, Hypehat. It's like they try to show some kind of a respect towards them, accentuate the dignity or whatever it's called. Well, if the guys opted for lowercase letters, why not stick to them? It doesn't mean you diminish bgas or pixletwin in any way because... it's how their usernames are written & identified on the board.

When people say "and again" when introducing something that has yet to be said. It's only in the past year or so I've noticed this, and it turns out it happens very, very often. I think it might be something done to take the place of "uh" or "um," but is just as bad, if not worse, since it doesn't just add nonsense, filler syllables, but adds inaccuracy to the statement.

In texts, people actually write the word 'Prolly', which is short for 'probably'. The problem is, 'prolly' isn't a word.

Agreed. Somebody once texted me 'prolly'. My response was 'who's Prolly?'.

Yeah, what's up with that??

Or posters who acknowledge somebody's post with "Post of the year!" or "Best post on the board ever!" or "All-time best post!" And I'm almost always thinking to myself, "No it isn't." I can find a better post than that without even having to read another thread!!

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears, and she's already working on my brain. I only looked in her eyes, but I picked up something I just can't explain. I, I bet I know what she’s like, and I can feel how right she’d be for me. It’s weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what she’s picking up from me. I hope it’s good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

This Thread is fairly iconic. Alot of the time, when I visit this Thread, it is full of Swag. That's awesome and amazing. It could of been better though.

And again, I should probably go put this Bumper Sticker on the back of my Car. I prolly do that now.

I hate how things are labeled as 'conversations', like emails or texts. 'Are you sure you want to delete this conversation?'. Technically, I guess they are conversations, although I consider a conversation to take place person to person, not electronically.

Where do you draw the line between a pet peeve and a thing you plainly dislike?

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

You dislike murder, violence, child labor, Looking Back With Love, injustice etc.

I agree. "Faith in humanity restored" is annoying.
