Random stuff that people do that annoy me

Recommended Posts

......following on from the annoying people thread

Why does everything nowadays have to be "dubbed as" something.

Just reading on BBC News that today has been "dubbed as 'Super Thursday'" because of the elections. Why?. By Whom?. Why do we need everything to effectively have a Brand?

Don't get me started on why every scandal has to be .....gate?

I realise it's lowest-common-demonator stuff dreamed up by a lazy media copying a USA format but it does my head in.

I know what you mean. I was amused rather than annoyed by the fact the EU in/out campaigns had to officially name their campaigns as "Vote Leave" and "Britain Stronger In Europe". Do they think people are that thick?

The ignore function would work far better if it did what it says on the tin, instead of offering you the choice of reading the post or not.

I didn't make it past the a couple of posts before curiosity got the better of me, and I turned it off!

I dub thee Unforgiven. Hmmm, that's a good cue for a song - or a cue for an effing fantastic song.
