When fans of a sports team post comments in an opposing team's blog forum immediately after the fans' team won a game. I'm not even talking about trolling, which I'm fine with, but posts like:

"Hey guys! Packers fan here. Great game, thought you guys had us till the last minute!" Posts like these just strike me as passive-aggressive, not "sportsmanlike".

If the fan never posted in the forum before, yea that would irk me too. But if the guy has been a frequent contributor, I wouldn't really have a problem with it.

That's very fair. Like MikeEnIke, for example. Then again, Mike would never be that good of a sportsman :lol:

I wouldn't call MikeEnIke a frequent contributor. Has he even posted in the last two years?

What team is that person a fan of? Is that guy related to someone? Like canaan maybe? His brother in law? If thats him, I think he's a Flyers fan. Am I creepy if this is correct?

Ticket brokers. I'm not annoyed if someone gets a full season plan and then sells off some of their tickets. I hate when people buy season tickets, for the sole reason to re-sell. Get a real job.

Yeah, I came across someone in Tampa who owns a full row of tickets. I bought 2, but still annoying. Also, recently sold the Van @ Pens tickets for $125 a piece. Pretty happy about that.

Firefox's versioning... There is no way that the code base has changed enough to justify being at 24.0... Just asinine.

The banner ad at the top of the page was just showing me an ad for women's swimwear, specifically bikini bottoms. I am peeved that the banner ad at the top of the page shows me ads for anything other than women's swimwear.

My ex-coworker left his station unlocked a few months ago. Logged in to his Google, Facebook and Amazon accounts.

Tsk tsk.

So I imagined what he'd be most embarrassed to have pop up in a targeted banner ad and spent 20 minutes searching for those things and clicking links and rating products. Now it's five months later and he's still getting ads for ball hair removal.
