You don't von Trapp me that easily...
Damn, wish I could say the same,
I have thought of something that I find annoying now............. being done up like a kipper
Twitter? You mean the internet right? Either way, this "the presumption to assume that their opinion is actually valid, wise or amusing" is the only reason any forum exists, everybody who posts to a forum like this falls into this category.
I really, really think you should not apply your psyche to everyone on forums.
I was, I merely questioning the logic of singling Twitter out for that sort of criticism, doesn't seem to make much sense to me.
I really feel sorry for you LHC.
The world and all in it must be very very dark to you. If for one minute I thought along your lines I wouldn't want to wake up tomorrow morning.
Have you undergone analysis? I'm sure there must be help out there somewhere for you.

How is life back in the 1970s?
EEERRRRMMMM! I have no idea Andrew, since I live in the present.
However it is most reassuring, that, when one sets a sprat to catch a mackerel, that one does come up with at least one.
p.s. Hello JD I thought you had retired or something. I haven't come across your witticisms of late.
Ah yes. Of course. Knew there'd be something fishy about it.

No, I most certainly do not mean "the internet".
"...The only reason any forum exists..." - I'm pretty sure that when conceived, whathifi.com's raison d'être was advice and information-sharing, not a platform for unsolicited potification and / or opinions?
*sigh* Ok, that's why WHF *started* the forum, however if no-one used it, it wouldn't still be here, the only reason people use it or any other forum is to pontificate or offer opinions that they think are "valid, wise or amusing". Everybody thinks they know best, that's why the internet is the success story that it is, it doesn't make sense to single out Twitter or any other single medium on the internet for that criticism, it's everywhere you look.
It's hard to suss if you're in troll-mode or just inherently obtuse.
Meanwhile, if it's OK with you, IMHO Twitter is still a generally annoying pulpit for inane egocentric warbling, yet the rest of the internet is useful for information and / or badinage with like-minded fellows - most of the time.

This really annoys me - not Sir Stanley Unwin, but people who stop you in the street and jabber on aimlessly. It happened the other day: This guy, who lives up the road, is very nice but he kept me talking for what seemed a lifetime, and I nodded politely. Once got back indoors, Mrs. P said: "What did he say?" I just shook my head, "not the foggiest"

Drivers running red lights (it's getting worse) because they cannot wait 30 seconds, and those that do not signal.
The OFT for completely ignoring the wholesale fuel cartel in this country.
The ConDems for repeatedly saying they've had to make 'difficult decisions', aka cuts.
People who use the phrase 'in terms of' all the time, as well as 'robust', 'I'm entirely in that space', 'corral', 'brigade' and 'from my perspective'.
My new Panasonic TV which has horrid bleed and has gone back to the shop.
It's been a tough week...... I feel better now.
It's a very theraputic thread.

Drivers running red lights remind me of when i approached a red light with a camera i stopped at the red light but the car behind me turned left (in a seperate lane) & got flashed.

People who sit at Traffic lights with their foot on the brake pedal...... there's a wee chance that you will read about me attacking a fellow driver for same.............. soon !
These 'fools' BLIND the driver behind them if it is after dark.
I recon there shoukld be a Nation-Wide PROJECT TO stop FOLK DOING THIS.

Worse that that, AT, is people who drive with their rear fog lights on... on a clear night! That is real dazzle.
Yep, that too..... but the foot on the brake pedal.... it's stupid and unnessesary as well as it is far easier to use the handbrake,,, found on MOST cars these days eh :)
I'll often sit in my own car and remark ... you'd THINK that given the cost of THAT car.... they'd have given IT............ a handbrake ! (lol)
If I have an automatic so does that let me off? If not, I guess I'd also be a source of annoyance to drivers if I had it in neutral with the hand brake on (or parking break as it says in the book!), then removed hand brake, put foot on break pedal, put it in drive, remove foot from break pedal and accelerated away (hopefully before the barage of horns suggesting I get a move on as the lights went green 10 seconds ago :)
The phrase 'fit for purpose'. It makes me want to use furniture as projectiles.
