1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Here's another:

    People who eat insane amounts of fast food and then try to break even by washing it down with a Diet Coke.

    Or

    People who are vegetarians for health reasons but still eat insane amounts of junk food.


    The diet coke will still take 200 calories out of the meal. That is significant if it happens often.

    religious people that do drugs/fuck around/are gay
    "Gays for a free Palestine"
    ."



    +1 - people who really believe in something seriously, very religious, very anti-religious. but people who essentially believe in scripture, and then turn around and argue that one specific part of scripture shouldn't be there, I dont get.



    gun people. just dont' get it.

    and flip side, those who are totally anti military/police/security

    fat chics love of spandex and sleeveless tops bitter people that want to entail you religious people that do drugs/fuck around/are gay "Gays for a free Palestine" inconsistency as a default state people that preach tolerance, that shout down those that disagree with them To the OP, the note taking? I know a guy like that. I can't stand him, for several reasons, but what he does with his notes is attempt to change what happened at meetings. For instance, he'll attribute something said to a person, and the person didn't say that, nor was that even said. But he'll argue, "No, it's right here in my notes."
    You're the boss. Fire his ass! A guy at my office follows up every meeting with a redundant email restating everything that was said in the meeting, almost as if everything came from him in the first place. It's ridiculous. What's more ridiculous is that his boss actually thinks he's on top of things because he does this shit, when in fact, nothing at all has improved under his management. He's an anal control freak, but the numbers are the same as before he arrived, so he's accomplished absolutely nothing. I'm in my last 3 weeks there, however, so I don't care anymore. After that, I will be unemployed. ^_^

    I'm a big fan of rap, but basically most hip hop culture and the people that listen to it nowadays is terrible.

    What's up with people always taking notes no matter what? How do you have a 10 minute business meeting and end up with 3 pages full of notes? What are these people writing down? I feel like sometimes a transcript would have been shorter.

    I get this and do this - it's important if people want to sue you later while alleging you have or have not said something.

    People who don't take 5 seconds to say "Thank You" after you hold a door open for them.

    I hate that. I opened a door for some old guy only last week, and he walked past without even saying thank you. What an asshole.

    In line with this one, I don't understand why people fail to lift up their hand for a thank-you wave after you go out of your way to let them into your lane.

    Wow.

    Why all movies with a southwestern USA desert scene contain a single guitar chord played with tremolo effect when they cut to a new scene.

    People who use the second person indicative constantly.

    Totally. You're always just walking around, then you hear someone using the 2nd person indicative. It really gets you down, you know?
