No, I am not going to 'check this out'.

Am I the only person who wants to wrestle that gizmo called a blog hud out of people's little mitts and trample on it?

Yes, I know I can scroll. I have a fast scrolling finger. I just don't want to scroll through the 'check this outs' with pictures of pretty disco lights or whatever ten times a day just to find anything with any content before it gets pushed off the page.

And why yes, I'm grumpy.

I definitly agree.

It's the utter laziness of people to even type in a title when they send those.

I've had a BlogHUD back when it was new and no one else had one.The HUD itself isn't needed to send images or 'blog posts' to the BlogHUD site and I'll send one once in a GREAT while.

But in truth, the images are crappy, too small and low-rezolution and they get lost in the utter garbage the lazy people keep posting thinking anyone on the planet might have the slightest interest in looking at it.

Heh - see my pet peeve #6 the morning of the 19th: lazy people and the lazy way they type creating "net-speak". Damned I wish I'd remembered to mention this cool-thing-turned-crap called BlogHUD. :\

Just call me Ari said...

Ah, net-speak. And mobile phone-speak. Don't get me on that.

(or people calling me hunny, which is the fastest way for my finger to hit the mute button).
