this is a thread on which to complain about the comments you may see in other threads. just write down what bothers you about a comment you have read in another thread. you don't have to preface or explain your complaint, just leave it here so the other threads don't get so congested with off-track complaints. grammar, language, religion, politics, celebrities, junk food, bad teachers, censroship, whatever bugs you.

(i'll start.)

stop attributing the mean remarks to what you assume are fat or heavy people!!

"Why can't we all just get along" whiners

I hate the motherly lectures from the easily-offended to show more compassion and sensitivity. They're the ones who should shut up, not me.

Hey -- I'm an occasional smartypants poster. I'd say this thread is full of us, but without anyone trying bully us into false harmony, we all get along just fine. Hehe.

I've seen so many sarcastic posts, and I mean, how dare they leave a sarcastic reasponse! This is all very serious...

It is safe to say that the person who suggested Crystal Meth as a weight loss drug was being sarcastic.

I like sarcasm and I will keep using it, even you are to stupid to read into my tone.

Angry Red Pens: the 2nd most despised group on PT?

The grammar know-it-alls on PT..please, create your own group and take turns proving grammatical superiority over each other so the rest of us don't have to witness it. Next to the Jesus people, you are the most annoying group on PT. I'm here to get healthy..misspellings or incorrect usage do not give me a rash. As long as I can understand it, I don't care if someone writes "Y" or "why." If you feel to inclined to correct the grammar crisis in America, become a teacher and try to fix the problem where it starts!!!

You know who you are!!! If you spend a fraction of the time that you spend on correcting grammar on this site, you could have lost an additional five pounds or have buns of steel by now. Now please put away your angry little red pen and go do something outside!

I'm not in any way a spelling or grammer stickler when it comes to informal message boards. Work emails and letters, yes, but here, no. But it confuses the heck out of me when I'm trying to read someone's post and they've not used any sort of punctuation or even spaces to separate out their sentences so it takes me twice as long to read it and figure out what they are saying.

example: (In answer to "how old are you?")
35 but get guessed for later teens early 20's does that count grins

(Whoever posted this, I am so not trying to pick on you, I tried to think up an example of my own but your was better)

Oh, the poll-type threads...

They're so pointless that it's tempting just to post a kazillion one-word answers as a passive-aggressive way of pointing out their pointlessness.

I hate when people post questions like "are tostito's and salsa bad for you?" I'm sorry, but if you are eating out of a bag of chips can't you turn the bag over and look at the nutritional info yourself? or read the ingredients?

I can't stand it when group members accumulate smallish cheats - poptarts for breakfast on Monday, conference room pizza on Tuesday, office birthday cake on Thursday, one (fishbowl-sized) margarita on Saturday - and then can't figure out why they didn't lose any weight that week. I want to smack them in the head like in that V-8 commercial.

I'm through with the "what are..." or "can you explain..." posts. It annoys me, because I usually know precisely zero about the topic brought up, and it takes literally two seconds to google lots of great info. Why can't they do this themselves? Many times they're not even asking for your own personal experience, they literally just want you to take the time and spoon feen them information they couldn't be arsed to look up themselves. Annoys the heck out of me. I've mentioned it very tactfully before after posting a lot of useful info that I took time out cut and paste and/or link, about a subject in which I had no interest. The post was deleted because expecting people to think for themselves is apparently an offensive concept.

While I'm letting my vitriol ooze, I hate it when people on really long threads refer to a previous post by time only and not date as well. I have to hunt and peck to the point of migraine to find it. Date and time please!

its so hard for Me to understand the posts without punctuation its funny that I notice the capitalized I Me Mine My its funny that the typer takes the time to capitalize but not to insert commas or apostrophes there is an occassional period I hate reading these posts

I totally agree with you, and I think its somewhat ironic and may be fueled by the fact that many of the advertisements on this site are for hoodia and other get thin quick fixes.

The phrase "can't be arsed" is en expression simply meaning can't be bothered. It's commonly used in English speaking countries in Europe and perhaps elsewhere. Not the most refined of phrases as "arse" is slang for a part of the human anatomy (It's not "ass" actually as said in the States. That's a donkey, but I'm getting pedantic.), but I find it handy and use it all the time.

If your post was actually sarcastic, oops. There goes me trying to be helpful again.

why are you opening the thread if you are only looking to respond to and/or criticize others' comments and not post one of your own that pertains to the topic?

yeah, you're not so great. i've read the bible of choosing healthy foods so now i can preach to those who think they are making good decisions, even though they're probably not.

you wrote "a" doctor, not "my" doctor! you said the doctor suggested that zinc be part of an overall health plan. what exactly does that mean? do you need to just have zinc in your diet or ADD more? i asked these questions, received a snarky remark and MY comment was removed! love it!

zinc MAY treat ANY ailment, we just haven't done the tests yet to figure out which ones and in what ways zinc helps. vague claims are empty messages.

laughs. it may be humourous to you, but it has made me look at my punctuation more. you did a good impression of my writing. laughs never knew it looked so bad. I never realized how My lack of puncuation looked. so thanks! we all like to learn and grow.

4:42, another tip: when writing actions, use asteriks to indicate as such. eg: *laughs* never knew it looked so bad.

p.s. you are a really cool person to look at yourself so honestly. *smiles*

* smiles* thanks, I have never been good with punctuation, but I always like improving Myself. You have a great sense of humor. I think thats one thing I try to hold onto no matter what the situation is. if You cant laugh at Yourself and be honest with yourself you will lead a very boring life.
