    Given that your description of him is '...a pretentious, spotty, ugly, annoying little fuck...' why would you keep him on your Facebook thing?
    He is a member of my cricket club, which had a standard everybody-friend-everbody-on-FB session years back. I'm surprised I didn't think to delete him on that last message to be honest, but he will be gone soon enough.
    You could simply choose to block all his updates.

    @EMarkM It's a demographic (marketing) term for people born between 1980 and 2000. Post Gen-X. They just used it a few times on Newsnight and it made me want to slap my tv.

    So they're not gen Y anymore? Tbh the entire thing that we have of naming "generations" does my head in, particularly when people assign characteristics to all of their members.

    I've about 200 Facebook "friends" (all people that I do know to say hi to in real life), but can only see 70 or so.

    Simple rule - if a person asked you to go for a cup of tea in town when you have nothing better to do, if there's any hesitation in you saying "yes", then you block them. Facebook actually becomes useful/good then.

    Yes! Winds me up tremendously, that one.

    Few more that always bug me:

    When people go "loooooooooool" at something really funny; "laughing out out out out out out out out ... loud"?

    "Cheeky *anything*"

    "Projectile poo" - one of several baby-related phrases I think the world at large was happily unaware of until a generation of oversharing parents took over the internet.

    I find hashtags annoying, but only when used "ironically" or with a lack of awareness as to their actual purpose. So something like #catpictures if you've posted a cat picture, fine because you're trying to catalogue it, but #omgkarenissuchaplayer or something - no no NO.

    "Such a thing is amazing. You won't believe number 4!'.

    Honestly, the longer I spend on this planet, the more attractive the noose becomes.
