PostSubject: Things that people do that annoy me on Ciao....   Fri Sep 04, 2009 3:18 am

1. Saying "Sorry, I've run out of Es" or something similar - if I think a review is Exceptional and have run out of Es (as I sometimes do if I have a load of alerts to get through) then I make a point of coming back and giving them an E when I do have one.

2. People making pointless comments such as "well reviewed" or "good review" - I know that I am slightly guilty such as leaving pointless comments when I leave an E (since Ciao seems to want us to by bringing the comment screen up), or when I say I'll be back with an E (I do this simply to remind myself when I look at my comments of who I need to give an E to).

I can understand newer members doing it for the community points (and think I was probably guilty when chasing that pretty purple dot), however it seems to be members with orange and above dots who are the worst culprits!

There will be more......

My God, could I have got the word "I" into my post any more than I just did (?)....I must be in a very "me me me" mood!

Lulz! I think I could easily do a "100 things that people do on Ciao that annoy me..." and still have some spare!

That first one would be one of my top ten pet Ciao peeves.

I tend to think that my comments are of decent enough quality, but when I have to fill in a comment because my rating differs from "the norm", then I find myself just getting silly.

The first one has always been a bugbear of mine and I swear it's getting worse. From a personal stance, I struggle to find one E a day, or even a week, let alone 5. I guess the argument there would be we all have different opinions, but I would of course disagree with even that. I'm sure a few years ago there weren't nearly as many overall exceptional (and I say that loosely) reviews, these days they are ten a penny as a result of over rating.

A combination of points 1 and 2 is even worse and equally as plentiful it seems these days. i.e. Nice review have an E...that one REALLY gets me !

A classic example of point 2 was on a recent review I read where the member had really opnened their heart about a particularly distressing and upsetting situation in the Cafe section, it was a really heartfelt and sad read and someone had left a comment "REally enjoyable review ! Whislt I am not a fan of 'open heart' reviews like this I found the comment to be in very bad taste and clearly indicative of skimming !

If I have 100 review alerts to get through I can easily find more than 5 which deserve an E, because the alerts come from those whose writing I enjoy!

I remember the review you're talking about in the Cafe...that was pretty terrible, the person clearly hadn't read the review at all, just glanced at the length and clicked on the E button....
