My biggest pet peeve about ATS/BTS is spelling. I can't put a number to how many times I've read a good post. You know, a post that makes some intelligent, poignant remarks or insightful opinion. But, I can't help but notice that there will be spelling errors which lead me, unconsciously, to think "less" of the post and what is being said.

My other pet peeve is when we Mods decide to brain-channel as witnessed above.

Oh, thank you for asking! I've been a member for less than a month, and I already have a huge pet peeve. The "prove it" people.
Not the ones who ask for more evidence -with good reason, the ones who do nothing but shoot down the conversation by saying "Prove it" -for no good reason. There can be 15 posts with links to evidence and certain people will still demand "proof" to be laid out in detail in front of them. These same people will either find a new place to demand proof (if you waste the time and bandwidth to copy everything out) or tell you you're wrong, stupid, and anti- whatever it is they support. I didn't join for name calling, finger pointing, or bullying. I joined to contribute something worthwhile.
(LOL, and instead I rant here. Sorry)
