    ouch.
    lol

    My pet peeve is serial fanning. Famming.

    So far, I have not had a typo in a forum... thank goodness. Hubbers are hilarious but brutal.
    lol

    Okay, I now have a new suggestion for Hub Pages: add 'spell check' to the forum format. LOL

    LOL.....sorry rsmallory...I had to do it to you....LOL   If I didn't, someone would have.....LOL

    We all do it from time to time.

    I hate making those stupid mistakes that are spelled correctly, but I've typed the wrong word....like typing "when" when I'm wanting to type "with" or something stupid like that.  Spellcheck isn't that smart yet.

    My pet peeve?  Women who leave their purses unattended.

      That's okay-I can be a good sport. What do unattended purses have to do with hub pages? smile

        LOL....well...I wrote a hub about it.....but I see you're just after Hub Pages Pet Peeves.  Ummmm....my pet peeve is people opening forum threads and you have no idea where they are going with it.  Like:  http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/28251

        It's been removed by HP...but it had a photo of a guy and girl about to kiss.  What did they want us to comment on?  LOL  There seem to be a lot of those types of forum posts.

    My pet peeve in the forums is people who beg for fans and the ones who just post to start an argument.

        There is a lot to be learned in an arguement when people choose to learn from them.

    Hubs that don't have first letters of sentences capitalized.  mad 

    Yet another forum post about either proving there's a God or proving there isn't.  (It's the proving part that irks me either way.  (Argue religion if you want but get your mind off proving.  lol)

    Forum threads about things like "words that start with x".  For some reason, I don't mind the counting threads (backwards, forwards, to a trillion - they're all fine, I guess); but for some other reason "words that start (or end) in ___" irks me.  lol

    I got one, really bugs me.

    Mile long quote posts when one line was all that was needed and was the bit being responded to. I get bored hitting the page down button so many times just to get to the bit I haven't already read.

      Ooh yes, me too.

      Sort of on a related note... sometimes when people reply to a post, they put their reply in with what the other person said, rather than at the bottom outside the quote tags.  So you don't know which is reply and which is original post. 

      You can put your reply in the middle, as long as you copy and paste the quote tags of the person you're quoting so that there's a "quote equals thingy" tag at the beginning and an "end quote" tag at the end of each paragraph you're replying to.  If that makes sense LOL.

    I'm with Kirsten - altho I often go on & on & on - forgive me - also hate it when you find a blog with intriguing title only find its about something else, entirely.

    picture only hubs with no content or copy.  Maybe its a fast way to publish a hub if you feel you need to, but what do you want me to comment on?  So I don't, I am not going to fake something for the sake of leaving a comment, but for that Hubber wish that I could.  Thanks
