   Discussion: What's the most annoying thing on the internet?

I couldn't decide between the email spam, the popup ads or the horrendous site design.

but being a TMBG fan, and not a tmbg.com fan, I had to pick the bad design category. yuck

Josh Woodward Back · 18 years, 7 months ago
ugh, tmbg was a trailblazer in the sucky site category. they've had a really sucky and hard to use site long before others dared move in that direction (god, like 1997 or something?).

thank god father o'malley knows what he's doing :-)

I picked bad site design too - I've been looking at music artists' sites for the past few days, and most of them crash my browser. I mean, really.

Pop-up ads are a close second, but since I've figured out how to make Mozilla not allow automatic pop-ups, my quality of life has increased significantly.
Misch Back · 18 years, 7 months ago
Exactly. I'm pretty much able to say... "Pop-ups? What are those?" Mozilla rocks.

Evil spam...anytime you see the word SPAM you know it's very very bad.
Josh Woodward · 18 years, 7 months ago
they ran a survey with similar results. like i said in another post, just use Mozilla and you'll never see another popup :-)
lawrence · 18 years, 7 months ago
I suppose this is kind of a subset of popup ads, because it can pop things up even if you use Mozilla. but it's also far more evil - you never know what kind of information it sends back to its creator/owner. browsing habits, emails you've read or sent, contents of your hard drive, and so on.

for those who don't know about it, go to LavaSoft and download Ad-Aware and Refupdate to rid your computer of such horrible things. if you use KaZaa, uninstall it and download and install KaZaa Lite which is spyware free.

Down with RIAA! Burn the witches! Burn 'em! They turned me into a newt.....well, I got better. Burn them anyway! Burn 'em! Burn! Yell more incoherently!

See, the RIAA isn't annoying, though...... They're just morons... and they make me amazingly angry.

They're FAR beyond "annoying" .... :)

Switch scary people to stupid people, and that would've had my vote instead of pop-ups.

Then again, I've my own stupid moments too...

elfy, teacher of many · 18 years, 7 months ago
Spyware and popups. OH and Bill Gates. He's up there on my list of annoying internet things. Wait, I forgot to mention stupid typos and stupid people in general. Dang, too bad we had to just choose one.

I had to vote spam 'cause that's the thing that's the most immediately annoying to me right now... though the RIAA is getting too out of control...
