Along the same lines as MrBobDobolina, I really hate the "PLZZZZZZ HELP ME ITS URGENT!", "I NEED SOURCE CODE FOR (insert project type here)" type of posts, especially the ones who don't want to do the work, they just want someone to hand them their assignment/project on a silver platter.

Even better are the ones who come to a forum, not this one in particular, any programming forum really, they post their code/ask for help, then when you give them help they proceed to tell you you're wrong :crazy: Does that irritate anyone else?

Last but not least, this happened just the other day here in </dream.in.code>: I don't mind helping people with their homework, we all had to start somewhere, but I expect you to put time and effort into it, I'm not just going to hand you the entire solution you need. This guy posts "I need code to do this, this is for an assignment and its due n the morning (its like 2AM PST mind you).

Wow, I feel better getting that off my chest LOL

also this may sound really dumb coming from me of all dic-heads, but i really hate when people have preternatural need to reply to everything when usually there is nothing of value. i.e. LOL. that was so funny thanks! WOW! you made my day! I wish that would happen to me! etc etc.

Quotes where everyone quotes each other one after another even when you know they would be talking about the stuff they quoted without the quotes. This leads to very huge quote chains, which I've only seen once or twice here on DIC.

Only once or twice? Try like every thread that a New DIC Head responds to.

I hate when people on irc use leet speek or whatever it's called. When they use the pipe symbol as an I or L, but have NO idea what it's even used for.

Added: It also irks me when I read a post on a newsgroup where someone asks a legitimate question (or a really interesting one) & everyone responds that "Standard C isn't aware of the OS & so this is considered off topic", but then all the regulars go on-&-on about some stupid BS. Why even post on a newsgroup if you don't even post about the programming language (or topic of the group!). Anything could be considered off-topic, they would rather put the time into finding a reason not to respond then to just say "I don't know" or even pass up a chance to complain.
