I saw one once where the post of the day was when the author was in a hospital waiting room and was a multi-paragraph rant on how all the other people sitting in chairs weren't dressed up pretty enough for her delicate senses.
I wince when I see those things - save that for personal blogs and personal facebook pages.
But by far my biggest pet peeve
Not being able to easily find listings of all books and series books in order - yes with easily click-able buy links.
I also don't like this in fiction books. Of course there are non-fiction books that are about politics or religion, I'm not talking about those. When you buy those you know what you are getting.
