Annoying Internet Words

I found this originally at a site called Slashdot and found it interesting. A British Polling company conducted a poll on what people thought were the most annoying words that have come out of the internet era. Topping the list was folksonomy, which I for on had never even heard of. There are, in my mind, more annoying words and jargon from the internet era, such as all the abbreviations that not everyone knows. I find nothing more annoying then having to ask someone in a forum what they were saying because they used an abbreviation that nobody knows. Another word that made the list was blook, which apparently is a book written from or based on a blog. Then there are the words people but together, for what ever reason. Netiquette is an example of this and should never been created, because etiquette is etiquette, whether it is on the internet or not. I had not heard of blook or netiquette before I read this list, which makes me wonder if people were just asked to rank ten that were already listed or if it’s a British thing.

Also making the list was cookie. How can cookie make this list? I want to know how a word can be annoying when it’s there is no other way to refer to it? Anyway, I am going to, for the first time, openly ask for comments from all you readers. I would like all of you out in blogosphere (also on the list) to tell me what internet related words or phrases annoy you.

    hmm, myspace?

    But seriously, When people use initials of sentences, like rotfl, or omg. The only exception to this is LOL because it comes in handy and laughing is to annoying to write out completely.

    A good example of this can be seen here:
