    I would prefer it if people didn't respond to threads that are blatant spam, but rather just report it instead.

    Some very good points made in this thread. My Pet Peeves?
    •People who don't post their Mac specs, or include them in a signature.
    •People who don't - or won't - try to find out as much as they can before posting a question [although searching the forums isn't always a simple matter]
    •People who knock or mock others' questions or answers [don't get much of that in this forum ]
    •Pedantry

    My personal pet peeve is someone who took the time to register simply to ask when something is coming out or how much something will be or what the newest version of whatever will have specification wise.

    That drives me up the wall!

    Ie. "So when will the new iPhone be out?", "How fast will the new Macbook's render my final cut project?", "How much will the new iMac's cost?"

    Around the time of the iPhone 3G this was rife, and the worst type of this kind of post is the demanding type...

    "My mum and dad said they will get me a new iPhone, so when will it be out because I need to get one for my birthday"

    I know these posts generally get ignored and I ignore them to, but it does make my skin crawl.

    Mel

    Ps, and the obvious, posting a question and getting 4 billion views but no reply. I know this happens in any forum, but it can be disheartening when your genuinely stuck with a problem and no other method of resolving it has helped.

    People whose posts start:

    "In Windows I can do X and on the Mac I cannot"

    And the only thig worse is when posting a problem, about anything; say for example "I tried to install Leopard update 10.5.4 and have an problem" you get someone say:

    "Well I installed it on all 9,000 of my Macs and had no issue, plus I installed it on my entire school and city and I installed it for Steve Jobs too and even on my digital watch and it took 3 seconds and works great"

    ... shut up...

    Oh yeeeesssssss Zoolook! That is singularly the most irritating response ever. Sure, those who say it mean well, but it is about as much use as gumboots on a duck!

    This annoys me too. I know this is a forum, and people come here to ask questions and get help ..... but I almost feel like it makes people lazy and dependent. In the last 2 weeks I have answered at least 10-15 questions based on not my experience, but by typing the question into google and looking at MAYBE 2-5 pages.

    Oh and xjaguar, I am with you bro, I just got warned as well.

    Many people get fixated on the fact that they just did a system update. So, if the computer hiccups in anyway, it absolutely MUST be related to the update in some form.

    It's the same thing whenever we roll out a new Microsoft patch at work to our Windows machines. Even if the patch doesn't actually deploy, but we've announced that we're rolling security patches, I still get the "my machine doesn't do <insert whatever> since the update". A week goes by, I deploy the update late, and no one says a word...

    Another thing that bugs me, more as a Mac user than as a general forum thing:

    Icons on the desktop.

    C'mon guys. You have the dock for a reason. If you're really good, you've also got QuickSilver and Spotlight.

    Almost as bad is docks with programs that are never used in it. I mean, how many times do you actually use iWeb?

    Grrrrrr.

    Okay. Fine. I'll allow removable media too.

    Hard drives and removable media are okay folks.

    So shall it be written, so shall it be done.

    Really? I've always viewed the "desk top" as my work space. So, anything that I'm actively working on goes there - until I'm done working on it of course.

    Lately it's been this vBulletin message:
    This forum requires that you wait 10 seconds between searches. Please try again in 19 seconds.
    If it is 25 or 20 seconds, fine, but don't lie to me!

    I am the same way. I do like to keep the desktop clean but when working on some things I have them on the desktop till I am finished with them then they are moved back to folders on the Hard Drive.

    I also thought of another one: people who have just plain STUPID signatures.

    I'm not going to name any though, although I do know a few.

    Press any key to continue, or any other key to cancel.

    There are 10 kinds of people in the world: Those who understand binary
    and those who don't.
