    When someone bumps an old topic instead of creating a new one when they should.

    When someone revives this damned old thread ... err ... ummm .... yeah

    Thats it :P

  6. @Danny C People who use compound nouns as a verb, as in "I'm going to setup my new machine so I can login". When you point out the error, they usually think they are correct (quick: how many of you already think I'm wrong) until you ask them to change the tense, as in "I'm setupping my new machine prior to log inning".

    Both of those examples are TWO words, not one. So, setting up and logging in...

    :P Hyphenated last names - pick one & be done with it :)

    Or, my personal fave , the lack of creativity displayed by naming your child as "so and so II, III, IV etc"

    Seriously all the names to pick from, or make one up and the MOST creative you can come up with is Oh lets add one to your name and call him 'The fourth' ... really ????????? ...

    really ?????????

    Talk about thinking inside the very tiny box

    When people comment on MacUpdate like it's the Mac App Store/YouTube.

  10. The fact there hasn't been a locked thread in ages.
    I used to think "why don't people just get along?"
    Then I thought, "I actually enjoy reading these."
    Then I thought a few more things - not exactly sure what, but I'm pretty sure they were insightful (rather than inciteful).
    Then I stopped thinking for a bit. Got to ration things like that.
    Now I've forgotten my point (and I can't be bothered to raise my eyes to reread what I've already wroten).

    David,

    I think starting from the first comment produced by our founder in PP and read to this comment should reset any lost thought you might have.

  12. QUOTE "Anyways" is not a word. UNQUOTE

    That I put my finger on a sore just to see if it still hurts.

    That this thread is just like a sore and I can't keep away from it.

    I believe this is most prevalent amongst wealthy US families to try to add a faux air of aristocracy. In the UK where there's a tradition of it being used in the royal family, it's almost unheard of amongst the hoi polloi (and would be considered really bad taste).

    I prefer to be called Richard Summers the 3rd, Esquire.
    Or just plain old Sir.
