There were 360 replies so far to the topic. This is the 361-st one. Another 4 and we can make an assumption that if those little annoying things are not happening all at once (as they probably not) then one may come to a conclusion that in this world something is bothering someone every day all year round. :-)

Cycle races.

 

Cause complete chaos, close roads, waste police resources and so on, just so a few narcissists in lycra can ride down a public highway disrupting everyone's work day...

Fortunately we don't suffer those but the cycle races we do. What blithering idiot thinks public roads are an appropriate place for races I do not know. I've just complained to South Wairarapa DC but as usual they were as much use as a chocolate teapot.

TradeMe sellers that when asked which courier they use for a specific area answer "1 of 3".

 

Without even naming the 3! Are they that embarrassed to say who they use?

That is quite interesting topic and clarification question being raised is spot on.If Can I please express my point of view? I would like to have an option of deleting my comment/post regardless of timestamp with all the comments where my post/comment has been quoted. More to that below...

 

Some other Technical Forums (e.g. one electronics repair forum I am part of) allows to completely delete your posts even if they are old posts - which is Good.

 

Another example: Facebook Groups allow to delete your post and that deletes ALL comments to your post which I found Excellent, especially when your post is high-jacked by Trolls with irrelevant or abusive comments. Recent example - being part of one group I gave very specific advice to the guy seeking that info. Couple of days is enough for them to read that reply and info does not require any further comments as it is in black and white, not arguable and can be easily verified or used by others. Some Troll immediately started mocking around making assumptions about my persona, etc... I have deleted my comment and that automatically delete all comments on my comment from the Troll. Excellent. Does not happen often but twice per year is good enough for me to have that option.

 

====

 

GZ allows to edit post within short time frame after being posted - which is OK.

 

GZ times you out while you are typing your post (as it did while I was typing this one) even before you have posted it - that is not OK. I know that already, so before posting I had to copy everything I typed, then after it timed me out - log again, then find the topic and then copy paste. That is not cool, please suggest if I am doing something wrong here.. That timing out perhaps contributes to people typing faster with more mistakes/typos others could be annoyed with or using quote button and not editing the quoted material as while you are doing that you can be timed out...After posting this counted 5 typos and had to get back to edit.

 

Some forums do have spell checks before you post and do not kick you off/time out
