    What is something that People, Companies, Communities, or "Things" say or do that just really (for a lack of a better word) bother you?​

    The ones that you tell to listen to you and then 5 seconds later you can see them smiling at their phone...

    I have worse. The ones who do that, then after 10 seconds they ask you to repeat because they didn't listen, usually with just a lazy "huh?".
    FFS, if what I say is interesting, listen to it. If it's not, don't ask me to repeat (and tell me to stfu so I save saliva) -.-

    I usually have my gears milled, cast, injection moulded or hobbed, however if I am going to have them ground then the company I tend to deal with has one of these

    So many things.
    I tend to not spend to much attention to it.

    Between insane and insecure
    100% agreeing with this post!

    There is one thing that annoys the shit out of me. When something has an OSX version, but not a Linux version. Like, really? You can figure out one Unix structure, but you can't figure out another? I know it's a small userbase, but it's still money. You clearly have some understanding of how the filesystem works!

    When people can't "debate" or argue without getting personal.

    Biased hatred toward something and being extremely vocal about it.

    The lack of QA from the gaming industry as of late.

    Lazy people...

    I could go on, but I think you get it.

    Well it really depends on what program you are talking about. If it's 2 guys making a program out of their garage then it would probably be too much work for them to learn a whole different structure for what they are gaining, especially if it's freeware (free as in freedom). But if you are talking about photoshop, then I guess I see where you are coming from. But they don't HAVE to port it to linux, because they are getting all the money they really need.

    Amusingly I had someone be upset at me because I almost constantly play devil's advocate and divorce myself from almost everything I can to argue in.

    Of late? There has never been QA worth speaking of.

    Laziness is the epitome of man.

    It's drastically dropped over the past few years, though.

    .. And I agree with the last sentence. The unfortunate truth of man.

    I might argue some kind of gambler's memory or now we can all speak at a distance longer than the pub/playground. The problem seems to be about the same as it has always been, maybe slightly magnified owing a marginally increased scope. Only difference might be the rise of the rolling release model for games and that comes with more good than bad for me.

    Also "unfortunate"? I consider it a good thing. The desire to be lazy results in some of the most creative stuff going.

    That's indeed highly aggravating.
    People who do not let you finish talking or give you no chance to say anything.

    That's one of the reasons I never go to social gatherings.

    people who think when a console is old when a new version of that console comes out. and then just throw it in the bin, like no money was spend on that. by bin i also even mean sell it. just give it to charity or better cause at least.
