Actually you can. If someone has poor grammar and spelling, it's obvious they have some sort of learning issue. Anyway if I find their posts are hard to read, I skip them. I do get annoyed with them too but I ignore it knowing it's not their fault.

I don't understand how people cannot suspect that.


You can't always tell. Most people can't tell I have it, which is who Ferdinand was talking about.


You have great spelling. Some dyslexics have great spelling so no one is going to know they have it.

26. Unwritten rules. NT society has enough unwritten rules to contend with - is it too much to ask that I have somewhere to retire to where the fracking rules are written?

Allowing Ackman to post topics. He really shouldn't be allowed to do so, because after all, he is a menace to society!

Fah. Society is big enough and ugly enough to take care of itself. :)

Just add to the list as you find something that annoys you. Bolded are added by others.


1) Necroposting
2) Trolling
3) Sending a mass PM to pretty much everyone on WP

4) Publicly calling out a forum member, rather than via PM.
5) Posting things in General Autism Discussion that belong elsewhere.
6) Thread Hijacking
7) Flamebaiting (see trolling)
8) Grammar Nazi's
9) fappin'
10) Opening topics with a title which has nothing to do with its content. Especially with sex-related title.
11.) Posting obviously non-random topics in the Random Discussion forum
12. Thread titles that bait with an unfinished sentence........and lead into an impotently boring opening thread post
13) turning a fun thread into a war
14) and new people that start trouble in the first day
15) Wall of text with no paragraphs to rest on/essay type of post.
16) People opening a new account just to attack someone or call them out on something rather than doing it under their original account.
17) People sending PMs asking "what's up" "how are you?'
18) Spam
19) People whining about their same issues over and over and ignoring everyone's advice
20) NT bashing
21) The superior talk against NTs
22) People singling out other users here just because they are different
23) People misusing the word troll
24) People who accuse others of being misleading because they interpret a statement differently to the poster
25) People who behave as though they were an elected spokesperson of a thread/forum/the entire site

Did they ever get rid of that time limit on editing posts?

26) Sharing personal details about someone else without asking them. That's not just bad f*****g etiquette, it can be dangerous.
