WHen I started this site years ago, I added an area that I called My Pet Peeves. At the time I was commuting a lot and there were things that I was seeing on the roads that were just pissing me off, hence the title My Pet Peeves.
Now, just double checking, I looked up the definition of Pet Peeve:
Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary
: a frequent subject of complaint
I preface my rants on that page with:
We all have pet peeves. We all have things that set us off. Mine seem to all do with commuting - driving, mostly. I've decided to start a collection of them.
That being said, the whole concept of a Pet Peeve is that it's something that pisses you off. It's something that gets under your skin. It's not something positive.
Are we in agreement here? And, these are MY Pet Peeves. Yes, I realize people won't necessarily agree. Then again, if you have your own set of Pet Peeves, you may agree with a few of mine.
What I DON'T understand, is the series of comments I'm getting over there...
Wow man you really need to mellow out a little bit..
...i wanna see some positive things on your site. jackass...
I'm sure you all do things to piss other people off, all fo your whining about the pet peeves on this site is making me sick. Oh, but maybe it's not, maybe I should take another look and see the good, wait, someone already did that, so I'll find the bad and stick to that, good idea.
WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ALL ABOUT??? OF COURSE THINGS ARE NEGATIVE THERE - THAT'S THE PURPOSE OF LISTING THE THINGS THAT PISS ME OFF!!!
Just goes to show you that there are all types of people that cruise the web, and after you try hard to increase traffic to your site you just can't pick the people that actually show up and read your stuff, let alone have people comment on your material in this way.
