what do you think is the worst internet fad today?

my list

spyware/spam/pop-ups - large annoyance and causes too many problems to list

AOL and AOL chatrooms- next to spyware and such this truely is the death of the internet. A/S/L please, give up you damn perverts!

flash/animations/bright colors - by them selves they seem cool, but no so when a site is filled to the brim with them.

furry porn/ hentie tentical rape - find me a more twisted and sick group of people and i'll personaly press the button to nuke earth.

Of course everyone hate spam and spy-ware. I hope that in an enlightened future there will be international conventions condemning this kind of advertising.

Pop-up ads is a necessary evil.



While I don't have any deathwish against the hordes of AOL kids that clutter the web I sincerely hope that that the AOL-speek either dies or matures enough to be a vessel of actual meaning.


Right now AOL-speek seems to be a slang language that not even the speakers understand.

Mary-Kate and Ashley site count as pop culture or sick fetishes?
Pop-ups should burn and die and burn some more.
1337 5p34k burning as well.
Furries aren't all that bad (except the ones that want to fuck horses) but their poetry is quite cool.
You missed out Gothic poetry (oh Jesus!)

How about... the over-use of internet shorthand to the point where things are misspelled on purpose, even if they don't save any letters?

oh, and furries.

Hell yeah, people who act/type like this are lame, and 1337 is for the retarded.

-Animated avatars.
-People who feel the need to register **-=>THEIRNAME<=-** with symbols and everything, as if they aren't calling enough attention to themselves by being a moron.
-Speaking of which, why do people feel special when they belong to [SOMELAMEASSCLAN]?
-People who don't think it's obvious enough that they post on a fansite, so their name has to be related to the game/series. Okay, Cloud68571, we all appreciate your fandom here on the FFX boards. Now change your name.
-Any website/saying/anything created out of sheer stupidity that becomes famous enough to be mentioned on CNN. The "Gay Bar" song and "fanmutations"(or whatever the hell they're called) seem to be coming up all over the place.
-Every time I see the word "teh" typed, I lose a brain cell.

On the flip side, I enjoy looking at tentacle rape.

Many of the listed plus other, and especially AOL/AOL Users. They don't know a damn thing about the internet, and get all upset when "it breaks." They are too stupid to see AOL is ripping them off.

1. AOL is a sucky browser
2. All of AOL's "special features" such as stock quotes and personal homepages can be found FOR FREE so many other places
3. It costs WAY too much, considering browsers such as IE, Netscape, Opera, and Mozzilla are free
4. AOL compresses every image as .art
5. You have too pay extra to use Cable/DSL (they say that they'll tell you if their's a call on your line; thanks but I'd rather take the call while online)
6. They have annoying pop culture teen-centered ads, which as a teenage geek, I find annoying that we're all grouped into Bitchny Spears loving pop culture fuck-offs.
7. See number 1


EDIT:

Can't forget number 8:
8. Popular among script kiddies, and other such suburbia scum (posers, wannabee goths, wannabee blacks, mallbabes, etc)


EDIT 2:

I think my point is I hate the way the internet is marketed to people who probably would beat up the designers and programers of sites up if they were still kids.

The language people use on the 'net has to be the worst thing associated with it. Someone mentioned 'teh' earlier in this thread; I'd like to add 'ownz' - HATE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!

So if there were a third world war, and countries started teaming up, you'd be proud despite the fact that the only countries on your side are Luxembourg and Madagascar?

Any attempt to explain the mindset of those we ridicule in an objective way is equated to sympathizing. It's the American way.

He's a terrorist, she's a terrorist-- wouldn't you like to be a terrorist, too?

Oh, I forgot one-- those pop-up ads that use simple Javascript to make people believe their computer is being hacked. I've half a mind to go on a shooting spree and explain that as the cause, just so the media circus would make it stop.
