- Complain about things, I recently read a blog that each and every post was complaining about things and the person kept dwelling on the bad things. I complain about things a bit on the internet but I don't dwell on the things for the whole post. Sure complain a bit on facebook but don't do it all the time and if its on a blog post complain for a little bit but not the whole post!
- Worthless (and meaning less) status's, ok we do it at times but sometimes its better not posting a thing on facebook for days than posting anything at all. I have had friends post really worthless status's like '23% through my science assignment' (and they continue to post how much they have done until they have done all of it) and honestly I have wanted to throw the computer out the window and its often not just a one off either it is an everyday thing. Sure post something like 'getting through my science assignment wish it wasn't so boring' but not '23% though my science assignment'. If you are going to post a a worthless status consider rewording it to make it less boring or don't post it all.
- Spelling peoples names without capital letters (ok I feel like a grammar nazi here), I hate it when I see my name spelt with a small 'e' rather than a capital 'E'. It drives me mad that people do that when it doesn't even take that much effort.

Pet peeves related to the internet
I have a few pet peeves (when ever I write that I always think of the cheeky ghost on Harry Potter why is that?!) when it comes to people using the internet. Most of the time I am easy going when it comes to comments and what people post on the internet if I disagree with what they are saying the chances are I will ignore them but there are a few things that I can't stand as in it drives me mad when people do these things consistently (once is fine, twice I can live with that but three or mores times I am seriously wanting to (virtually) slap you across the head), I get that the internet is a place to express yourself but sometimes if you have nothing good to post why post anything at all? So here are things that people do that drive me mad:
