    Does anyone else read BBC live text during football matches? I regularly do, just to keep an eye on how my fantasy players are faring.

    Recently the summarisers have started using single words at the end of updates, in the same fashion that people on facebook use hashtags.

    Examples:

    'So Friedel makes his 450th consecutive appearance in the Premier League as he lines up for Spurs today. Dedicated.'

    'And wearing the captain's armband for Arsenal today is Robin Van Persie, who has scored in each one of his last 9 league starts. Prolific.'

    'And Suarez will be starting on the bench today for the first time since joining Liverpool. Cunt.'

    FUCK OFF BBC.

    Maybe it's just me.

    I think thoses are mainly just the texts from Opta and those other statwats, but yes, annoying.

    I'm increasingly annoyed by EG and VG247 using the word 'shuttered' instead of closed down as also 'presser' instead of press conference. Might just be me, though.

    @Hairyarse. No mate, it annoyed the shit out of me too. Right up there with Yanks saying they 'misspoke' when they lied and the term 'drawdown' being applied to everything. It's not even a word. They just thought 'withdrawl' sounded too much like retreat and now everywhere I go something is in a state of 'drawdown'. Or being 'shuttered.'

    I saw the word shuttered about five times yesterday, ranging from EG to the Beeb to Colbert Report. It's just one of those fancy buzzterms that one news agency uses then everyone else thinks it's cool and then vanishes within a month.

    ".Simple as."
    "What part of [insert word in question] don't you understand?"
    "Bruv"

    And almost any slang word used by 15 year olds

    What slang do 15 year olds use these days? Grooming will be a lot easier if they think I'm with it.

    Don't know if this has already come up, and I can't be arsed to read the whole thread right now, but I can't stand it when people refer to their time as 'bandwidth'.

    'Please inbox me.'

    I used to work at a company tangential to law firms and it's amazing how often you see that phrase. It creeps into every email and correspondence, I hate it with a passion.

    You are a factory of sadness.

  • Deleted user 18 April 2013 11:40:01
    When Brits say bro is equally as annoying as dude.

    I work in a printers as a graphic designer, for print. I recently got some artwork from a web designer, as I often do to prepress (although why web designers presume they are also print designers when most of them clearly are not is annoying in itself, one does not mean you automatically can do the other) and on the email that was forwarded to me, he referred to me as the "offline guy". The Offline Guy? Really? Fuck off you twat.

    I bet the artwork was 72dpi wasn't it.
