Here at Hooligan HQ, we (yes, all of us) are very much open to the idea of guest posts. We're especially open to these if they happen to be ranting or railing against deplorable social mores.
Best of all are the guest posts that are simmering energetically – barely below boiling point –with rage at the state of human behaviour in the arena of the World Wide Web.
With the above in mind, ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce you to Christine.
Christine has made energetic contributions to this blog in the past. Her views on The Panini Question, for instance, are commendable. And she is the international authority on faves.
Characteristically, Christine's guest post (in fact, as you will see, it's more of a guest list) is pithy. A quality, you may note, I am undermining by prefacing it with a great waffling deluge of prose.
So, then – over to Christine. Chime in, won't you, with your own additions to the list. And if you are seething with barely contained rage on any subject, send me your soapbox rant by email. The more spittle-flecked its misanthropy the better.
A Few Things I Detest
When people are on the internet and write:
- Miss your face!!!
- OM NOM NOM NOM NOM
- Fun times
- Good times
- Goodtimes (even worse I think)
- [----]times (insert any number of words. All annoying.)
- FTW (hate it in full as well, but the abbreviation is the absolute pits)
- Epic Fail. (or any variation of)
- Woop woop!!!
- [x] sleeps until [some event or other] (usually followed by several exclamation marks)
- All that 'I can haz' lol cats balls.
- pEOPle TYpinG LiKe tHiS
Any more, folks? We particularly like Christine's #7 (the omission of the space is particularly heinous) and #14 (for its wording).
