What irritates you?

by allegandro 45 replies
I think the warrior forum is a great way to get inspired, to learn, to sell, to share and to buy from great people that have experience, knowledge, and ideas when it comes to marketing.

But there are some things that irritate me, and maybe also others.

1. Not able to read, before you comment.
2. Making assumptions about a person.
3. Thinking that you know more because you posted more.

Without naming and shaming I like to know what you find irritating and can be improved.

      Kay King refusing to flirt with me when I'm in a committed relationship.

      I want to be able to say.....just once.... "I'm so sorry Kay, I know you love me, but I'm very happily married to a beautiful woman. Our love wasn't meant to be."

      What really irritates me on the forum? (any forum)...

      People arguing points that weren't made in the first place. People arguing about things the other person never said. Twisting statements to create an argument. I don't just mean it for myself, but I see it all the time.

      It's part of human nature that I still haven't figured out.

        We never argue or make points about what you said or never said. We argue and make points about your insinuations.

        Glad we cleared that up.

      Maybe Kay just doesn't know about your burning romance with Big Frank.

    • Smileys l can't see.
    • bossy people that have been banned once, but don't take the hint.
    • People that have to be right, and end up looking sillier an sillier as time goes by.
    • Trolls that never apoligize and have to attack someone to feel better.
    • Kittens all tied up in string.
    • And loud mouths on mobile phones.

    Usual stuff.

    And NASA.



    Oh, yes, how can we fix this, ummm, forums need more regid software, and mods, that occasionally fix obvious visual issues, occasionally, more bannings, more firing squads, more people to untie kittens, and more slaps for mobile phone users, and NASA, more CEO's against a wall at dawn will probably do it!

    Well, although I joined the Warrior forum about three years ago, I haven't been active here for most of the time so I'm now speaking in general and not referring specifically to WF.

    I hate when I asked someone a question that they don't have the answer for and they don't want to say they don't know and tries to impress me by answering incorrectly. That drives me up a wall.

    For this reason, I now resort to consulting with Google and WF instead, especially for technical questions.
    Some people just hate saying "I don't know" and I find that to be so stupid.

    Its a matter of choice and/or your objectives to be here..

    1. Not able to read, before you comment. - Depends person to person.
    2. Making assumptions about a person. - That's very common phenomenon.
    3. Thinking that you know more because you posted more. - Again, depends person to person.

    What irritates me? People, in general. I never get mad at my dog or my cat.

    I have a quick flash of 'mad' - quickly over as I realize the 'problem' either doesn't matter...or I don't care....unless I'm just having fun pushing buttons.

    I'm also irritated that Claude is happily married, Opted In is in New Jersey so no BMW ride for me - and Tagiscom is....well, Tagiscom....

    Don't worry - I'll get over it.

      Nah, not enough room, but when they handed over the keys, he did get a free packet of fries!

      But on the subject of irritating, the new iphone, reportedly has face recognition that is dodgy, (the CEO of Apple couldn't get it to work at launch) and a 12 mp camera, and costs almost double of what a Galaxy costs.

      Try gorilla gripping a $1,850 smart phone while walking, etc, or going to the toilet.

        I maintain that you post crap while being one of the least informed people on the planet. You value the opportunity to get in a dig rather than posting correct information. That irritates me.

        The facts, people!

        “People were handling the device for the stage demo ahead of time and didn’t realize Face ID was trying to authenticate their face. After failing a number of times, because they weren’t Craig [Federighi], the iPhone did what it was designed to do, which was to require his passcode.”
