    People who 'LOL' at themselves on the internet.

    How do you feel about people who repeat themselves to ensure their messageboard posts aren't overlooked?

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Anyone who says "done" when they should say "did".

    I am looking at you Alan Shearer etc..

    The boy done good.

    They done really well.

    @AceGrace Even if they said "did" instead of "done", the first sentence is still an affront.

    When did 'across' become a verb?

    "We're across that story"

    Not half as silly as people trying to be clever on the internet with posts like yours, yet not bothering to check the (identical) post-times and quickly realising the poster in question had merely fallen prey to the ol' double post again.

    ;)

    I was only teasing, but I forgot to wink.

    That's not the verb in that sentence. The verb is ''re' or, more commonly 'are' - the first person plural form of 'to be'. Someone cleverer than me will have to tell you what part 'across' plays in that sentence though, and I agree that its semantic use is an affront.

    Tonight, Matthew, I'd like to nominate the word 'inflammable'. Surely it's spelt wrong? It should be 'enflammable' as in possible to enflame. Something that is possible to inflame is merely irritable, not flammable.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I have no idea what 'across' means in that sentence. Done? Finished? Doing?

    One word that pisses me off is "addicting".

    Everytime i read it, usually on a US website, it really winds me up. "This game is so addicting", i may be wrong but it just seems out of place. Addictive is the word i'd use. The only time i'd use it would be if "John was addicting me to crack". I may be way off but if does my head in.

    I dislike the excessive use of hyperboles in articles(eurogamer is guilty for this) or even double hyperboles ( a amazing mind blowing ....)

    'For free': sadly this ship has sailed as the phrase is ubiquitous now. It still annoys me though, something is either 'free' or 'for nothing', there's no such thing as 'for free'.

    Another very common but incorrect phrase, which frequents BBC news far too often, is 'report back'.

    Don't point that beard at me, it might go off!

    'Across' is the preposition. Tells you where 'are' happened in relation to 'story'. Sounds like an awful sentence though.

    Don't even get me started on 'addicting'.

    "Send me an invite".

    No. I won't even send you an invitation which is the noun you were looking for. Cunt.

    All of them!
    I could fill this forum with stuff my pedant housemate gets riled by!

    It's awesome how easy he is to wind up. Watching Documentaries are especially good. He's completely unable to comprehend language being used creatively or adjusting explanations to fit the audience. I'm sure he has some form of problem and many, many people have mentioned this too. lol!

    I thought i was bad but seeing how he can't go for more than 45 seconds without commenting and gnashing his teeth i have to say he's cured me. I let a lot more slide by me with a shrug nowadays knowing it's annoying the fuck out of him and my apathy is grating even more.

    Bliss.

    The way women speak in texts and on facebooks. It took every ounce of my willpower not to lay into your facebook mate who finishes every sentence with lol x AND NOT A FUCKING FULLSTOP.

    You should buy some cornflakes lol x or you wont have anything for breakfast lol x do you want to go to the pub after work lol x

    He totally called it

    I'm so guilty of this. And "basically" too. Basically this and basically that, obviously.

    I do it when I'm nervous and end up kicking myself afterwards!

    I reckon excessive lolling is just insecurity. The textual equivalent of exposing the belly - I'm not harmful lol, please don't hurt me lol.

    -- boobs do nothing for me, I want moustaches and chest hair.

    One of my uni lecturers did the basically thing, "basically" ...followed by some mind-bendingly complicated sentence about double line integrals. I reckon she was toying with us.
