Because mannerisms are important.

"tinfoil hat"

This one isn't even used correctly anymore. It's become an all-purpose phrase for "I don't agree with you."

Think Rove knew about 9/11 in advance? It's a crazy, harebrained, crackpot theory, very likely incorrect, but it's not entirely out of the question. You aren't necessarily protecting your skull from alien mind scanners to ask that question.

Think there WERE NO PLANES on 9/11? That is was all done with "welded boxes" and mirrors or whatnot. OK, you qualify.

"It's apples and oranges."


FOR GOD'S SAKE people, this one is played out. Try "false analogy."

Usage of rolling eyes emoticon in lieu of real wit.

Misspelling definitely as "definately." Makes my scrotum retreat. The root word is "finite," ya bozos. This is why we should still be teaching Latin in public schools.

Repeated and flagrant self-fellatio in the Hype Exchange. More like Tripe Exchange.

Forons taking themselves too goddamn seriously. If you're losing sleep over a verbal smack-down here, step away from the CRT. Seriously.

Failure to punctuate and capitalize anyfuckingthing. Who do you think you are, James Fucking Joyce?

The inability of people who clearly can't spell their way out of a wet paper bag to master the ever-so-steep learning curve of a fucking spell check program. There are only like eight of the fuckers sitting in yer OS, fer cryeye.

Responses consisting solely of the word "whatever." What are you, twelve?

Repetition of the mantra that Madison is an uncultured topological wart, regardless of whether this point is germane to the thread in question.

Whiteboy rap battles. Your verse scans like the fucking phone book. Put a fucking sock in it, yo?

What am I forgetting?

Emoticons in general get the bozak. As do colored fonts.

I like Chuck's

Amen. I find that deeply offensive. And can't people communicate without resorting to sarcasm?

Bagging on every fucking behavior and idiosyncrasy that doesn't reciprocate your own.

Fuck that! How about the propensity to censor? Or the propensity to be revisionist? Or just being too fucking big of a fucking pussy?

Goddamned motherfucking book-burning nazi-fucks...
