Hardgamer, you've been back for less than 24 hours, and you've already created 3 different "what ____ you?" threads. 
 
Take a break.

Music elitism.

When people say "brought" instead of "bought". No idea why, I just find it hateful.

Dude, how can I get a break? This is the only break time I have pretty much have for the rest of the day. I mean, how can I?

Rorie and the whole fucking thing with the damn puppies. I love everyone at Whiskey Media. I really do. You're all great. I hope you guys see even more success in the future. But god help me if I have to sit through another live stream with him ogling at puppies, I will, in fact, find a puppy and kill it. Okay, maybe I won't take it that far, but still, make it stop. And I know it's been a while since he's done it, but that's how much it annoys me that months later, I'm still upset.

I'd probably go with elitism in general based on my recent experience with Lineage 2 (check the forums is all I'll say), but I find music elitists in general to bother me the most.

Kids who spend an entire class on their phone or laptop clearly ignoring everything around them.

Even in grad school it's everywhere.

If you don't want to be there, or your parents are paying for it, or whatever, still try to show a base level of respect for other human beings. At least pretend to listen. When it's clear you could care less, you seem like an asshole. Just don't show up.

When people say "I could care less". THATS NOT THE EXPRESSION.

If you could care less, then you obviously care somewhat. Thats hardly the extreme of not being interested in something.

Grammar is based on mathematical logic. Rules like double negatives meaning a positive are based on maths.

Lets say you really hate a game. To avoid controversy here I'll just call the game Head Bashing Extravaganza. Now lets say everyone HATES this game. If the game got one star (lets just say zero stars are impossible on this site) then you couldn't rate it lower. You couldn't rate it less. If you 'could rate it less' then you obviously must give it two or more stars. Because the possibility of less (going down to one) is still possible.

If you 'couldn't care less' then thats because on the scale of 'caring' you are at the absolute extreme end of it. As in, you literally can't care less because its impossible to care less than 'zero'.

See? Logic. Of course a person saying 'I could care less' could be speaking literally. Its not grammatically wrong, but whenever that expression is used, its obviously not the semantics the person wants to convey.

I actually found a Contra Hard Corps rom hack that actually changes 'I couldn't care less' to 'I could care less'. Yes, someone hacked into a game to make a translation wrong. Thats got to be a first. Jesus Christ.

When people say "then" when they really mean "than".

#17 Posted by thevigilanteoflove (533 posts) -

When people are really really mean and nasty on the internet. Everyone on almost any forum about any subject are rude and nasty to just about everyone. This community is pretty good compared to some I've been on. I think that might be because it is still relatively small, compared to something to something like IGN or ESPN, which has some of the worst comment sections and message boards I've ever seen. No real conversation is ever accomplished because either someone spouts a meme or calls you a dirty word. So, as GiantBomb continues to grow, I hope we can keep the good spirit alive and mentor the newer members on how things should be handled on the internet.

Also, it bugs me when people sing the national anthem and try to give it some style of their own. Just sing the damn thing.

People chewing with their mouth open (this includes chewing gum). Little kids, I can understand. People my age (mid-30's), it just makes you look uncouth.  I won't say anything, but I'll leave if necessary. 
 
Now if you start talking with your mouth full of food, I will say something. That's just fucking disgusting.

When people spell "Lose" as "Loose" I see it all the time and it annoys the hell out of me. This is basic spelling people! Same goes for "Rouge" instead of "Rogue"

The "tick" sound that now emanates from my three-month-old MacBook Pro when I brush the touchpad.

When people are wrong on the internet. When people have different points of view as mine. When people aren't ladies but pretend to be ladies and I have fantasies about them being ladies only until I learn they are guys and then I have to go to another session of group therapy.

#35 Posted by chrismafuchris (1154 posts) -

Whenever I type the letters i t and s without a space, my iPod assumes that I mean "it's", which is generally not the case. However, autocorrect provides an invaluable service, so I would be dumb to turn it off.

In addition to the above, people typing out "could of" when they mean "could have." I should also mention that in one of my university classes there was a fellow who would spend the whole class on some kind of sex chat website.

#39 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3858 posts) -

Overly sensitive people who get offended at just about every word you can think of that's not completely, 100% politically correct. Or people who jump at every opportunity to call people racists, homophobes, etc. Even if it means taking comments wildly out of context. Unless it's in a YouTube comment section. Then it's usually justified.

All of these.
 
And people who write "defiantly" instead of "definitely".

One thing that always gets to me is when assholes who are driving behind me feel the need to switch lanes and then essentially cut me off, just to be stuck behind a bigger line of cars. Basically, impatient drivers really grind my gears.

Football (soccer) fans reacting to news that one of their players might not be a bastion of virtue. Right now two high-profile players have been accused/found guilty of making racist comments (John Terry/Luis Suarez respectively). Despite no further information on why the authorities have chosen to make these decisions, the internet is awash with fans of both clubs angrily blaming everyone but the two players.

A thousand times yes. Especially when the time left on can possibly be mistaken for the actual time. I rage so hard at work when for a fraction of a second I think I only have an hour left in my shift, only to realize I have triple that amount of time.
