Once again, I am laying down no rules. Just nominate and vote for anything that makes you laugh at the person who gets upset. You don't owe him any respect. This is the Internet, Man!

My main annoyances.
1. Wrong Tank Syndrome. Give it a rest, guys. The only thing a movie producer owes to anyone is to the people who are footing the expenses for his movie. He owes them a profit. He doesn't owe you a correct Tiger tank.

2. Global Warming. Are we really going to settle the science on a site devoted to playing with toy soldiers?

3. Napoleon was a Good/Bad Guy. Fetch me beer and popcorn. The usual suspects will come out to revive their same tired old rants. Hopefully, things get out of hand and a mass DHing takes place.

That made me laugh out loud, all by myself.

You put that on the wrong board.

The latest movie superhero isn't a straight white male when that person hasn't been one since 1975 in the comics.

> Jar Jar Binks!!

I hate to say it but Jar Jar is looking better and better the last few movies.

Silliest – can't pick just one, or even a handful.

Word choice. We've got someone still trying to push the language back into the 20th Century, as though languages stand still. Yes, of course it's me, but that doesn't mean I can't see how annoying it is.

After that, everything concerning movies, TV and video not related to putting on a miniatures game. I read a fair number of mysteries, but this is not where I post stuff about them.

People NOT getting upset about people getting upset. Usually about politics, but the first upsetter pretending not to be political.

Jar Jar Binks!!

+1 Tango01 – you're right, Jar Jar Binks is the embodiment of evil and is symptomatic of all that is wrong both in the Star Wars universe and our own more mundane universe.

Current politics masquerading as being relevant to miniatures and wargaming related material.

I love this topic! Maybe we can all see some of ourselves in the gripes listed… And learn from it? ;-) I think I am beginning to understand why Dracula hates mirrors… Cheers!

Aside from the problems people have because not everyone plays with their toys in the "right" way, I also find it amusing how something like a petty spelling error by a non-native speaker of English can inspire some people to be snarky.

Silliest thing?

Even after you post a clear warning about a video clip, some very sheltered people get all bent out of shape over some of the images in the video, even when there really isn't anything at all wrong or unnatural about it.
