I ran across this today and thought maybe just maybe a few people who practice these idiotic traits will read it and repent. (a guy can dream right?)

I think the mods here could probably add an item or two to that list.

7. Promote your stuff. Endlessly

I have to admit that I'm often guilty of 2. Passionate cluelessness. I'm so ashamed.

I'm so inspired, I've decided to coin a new phrase.

Google Sarcasmonauts: People that make sarcastic gestures to "Google it" who are so disconnected from society, they seem like they're in outer space.

*smacks jflynn upside the head*
Like that !

:lol:

No really though, the worst one I think is the one that links to a page with animation of some search terms being typed into a Google search box that eventually takes someone to a Google SERP.

It's always people who seem fairly smart otherwise too. I think what is really going on, is that these people are just quick to think of search terms, in the same way a retarded person usually has some sort of amazing ability like being able to multiply 12 digit numbers in half a second.

That is a pretty good list...

If everyone always depended on the help of Google, we would all learn to not depend on Ozzu as much as we are :) (Jflynn's posting rate would also be cut in about a quarter :P)

And if I didn't depend on Google, I suppose I'd probably be far less than 10k posts right now.

I think they should add a converse to #4. People who do speak English but refuse to put even the slightest modicum of effort into making a post that doesn't require deciphering.

For instance, the creative use of ellipsis like things as a universal punctuation.

Quote:
yeah,,,,,,okay,,,,,,,,,that really sucks,,,I think I'm going to flame that person,,,,,,,cuz I've got nothing better to do,,,,,also,,,,mom says hi,,,,,,I am so cool,,,,,but you,,,,,,not.


The always loved screams of all caps

Quote:
I"M SO SURE THAT I"M RIGHT THAT I FEEL THE NEED TO YELL EVERYTHING IN TEXT> SO MUCH SO THAT I FORGOT TO TAKE MY PINKY OF THE SHIFT KEY WHILE I WROTE THIS POST< UNTIL I PUNCTATED THE END!!!!!!111111


Then of course, there's the teenage girl move where you add "lol" and "hehehehe" to every post.

Quote:
lol, heheheehe, luv u, hehehe, lol, hehehehe


Which brings us to creative spellings, chat speak, vowel replacement, and acronyms.

OMFG!!! I c4nt b3l13v3 h0w fr34k1n l33t 1 4m bcuz U suk


I guess the person who wrote the article might be compelled to call me a Nazi. :)
