People who join a thread only to say, "This thread sucks." Thanks, buddy. You just made the thread suck even more. >:(
That depends on how lousy the thread was to start with.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

When you look forward to fellowshipping during coffee hour after Liturgy but your friends always have to go to some parish council meeting. Can we please leave Sunday for worship and fellowship and schedule business meetings for another time?
Would you rather schedule the parish council meeting for times when you know nobody can attend?

Or maybe limit them to one Sunday a month. It just seems like between Sunday School, Greek school, and parish council meetings, all my friends are gone during coffee hour. Maybe that means God wants me to meet some new people and make some new friends. But seeing as how Sunday morning is the only time I get to see my friends from Church, I do get a bit frustrated. Oh well. Parish life does not revolve around little ole me.

You have parish council meetings every Sunday? That's pretty intense.  :o

It probably just seems that way. I don't think it's every Sunday.

People who proudly label themselves as introverts on social media, when clearly they are not and never have been.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

When I get a new tattoo, and it seems safe to go back to my ordinary day to day, and I go to sleep, and I wake up with tattoo ink transferred to the bed sheet. At least the transfer looked like a quality job; very little blur at all, apparently I hardly moved at all. :P

People who proclaim themselves "nerds" and "geeks" solely because they like Star Wars, Harry Potter, or some other mass-marketed, corporate entertainment.

But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."
Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D'Urbervilles

When the phrase "IMHO" (In my humble opinion) is followed by a condescending judgment of someone or something. It makes the opinion sound anything but humble.

That's the point.

IMHO, of course.

What do you mean? Is it purposely meant to be sarcastic? If so, then why in the world would I want to humble-brag by implying "This is my opinion, which I say is humble, but I'm really being prideful; take it or leave it"? I think it's more honest to just say "IMO"

The H in IMHO can also mean Honest, which is how I always define it. It is more consistent with how it is used.

The newest fad in internet webpagery: when you go to hit 'back' or 'exit' on your browser, the site detects what you're doing and gives you a pop up of some advertisement or other.

The Nigerian princes must have finally got their money issues in order, and the male enhancement people must have run out of stock, because they rarely contact me any more. Now it seems to be daily FedEx package notifications that I'd swear I have nothing to do with, but they seem quite insistent.

My pet peeve is when people use "Old English" to refer to Early Modern English.
