Push my button!

What type of post here at MR is most likely to push your button? Surely I have left out some likely possibilities. What are they?

You didn't mention complaints about the quality of free programs created by programmers working without pay on their own time.

When the term "sucks" makes its first appearance, no matter what the context, I stop reading.

Vivaldirules, you left something out of the poll. You forgot "Someone complaining about someone complaining about using Reader and eReader interchangeably"...

...and so on...


I like caramel thickshakes. Is that an option?


Cheers,

I've got one. Someone who claims their newly purchased device sucks because it can't do something that it never claimed to be able to do.

People complaining that their device doesn't last 18 months on a single battery charge. I mean how far do most of us ever get from a power point for crying out loud. It is not a problem plugging in the kettle every time we want a cup of tea (coffee for the less civilized amongst us) so why is it such a big deal charging a reader every couple of days.

Did I mention I own an iliad?

This poll needs to be deleted so it can be remade so we can check multiple items. In order to give an honest answer, I need to check multiple items. But I cannot. So I cannot vote. I tried to see if it could be edited to be fixed, but it seems once it's made incorrectly, it has to stay that way.

Would you mind allowing this thread to be killed so the poll can be done with multiple choices?

I love all of these! It's good to see people in such a playful mood. I also see another one I left out: Moderator editing my poll for his/her own amusement.


EDIT: We wouldn't do that!
