Boomers overusing ellipses.

edit: Also, using "of" instead of "have," ie "Should of would of could of"
Oh yes... It is really obnoxious.... when people try to sound... all... mysterious and shit... by... spamming... the... goddamn ellipses... shit's... just cringy... and they.... can... barely... finish... a s...e...n...t...e...n...c...e......

It troubles me that improper use of "your" is overtaking "you're"
Language evolves as needed, I get that, but this is emblematic of a gradual dumbing.

Meh, I like to be given ample warning that the person I'm speaking to is lazy or stupid.

People who reply to comment sections. They used to be either a good way to talk about the article/video/whatever, or laugh at the trolling going on. Most commenters now are either incredibly autistic, incredibly stupid or a combination of both.

Overusing memes
People who say a bunch of outlandish shit with no source, and then demand a source from whoever they're arguing with.
Using opinion pieces as sources. For some reason it's almost always WaPo people do this with.
Mixing up e.g., and i.e. e.g. = "For example" i.e. = "In other words"
 

Fek

What could possibly go wrong?

Not the most widely applied pet peeve, but it's by far the biggest one I can think of off the top of my head:

Using an open mic in any voice chat. Use push to talk so no one else has to hear your sniffles, sneezes, coughing, random mouth noises, candy wrappers, throat noises while you drink something, incessantly barking dog, shifting in your shitty creaky chair, your mechanical keyboard, parents telling you it's past your bedtime, etc, etc, etc. There's an etiquette to it, you goddamned degenerates.

When People Fucking Write Their Stupid Sentences With A Capital Letter At The Beginning Of Every Single Word Like How The Fuck Do You Get The Idea That That's Proper? What The Fuck Is Wrong With You, It Takes A Lot Of Effort To Type Like, This Especially On A Phone, And My Pinky Is Already Getting Slightly Annoyed Having To Hit The Shift Key This Many Types Just To Type Out This Post

It's Bad Enough When I See Thread Titles Written Like This, Because You're Not Titling A Fucking Novel, Dumbass, But When It's Just A Normal Post, Cut It The Fuck Out

I used to feel the same way until I started trying to post on my phone. I know which your to use but my phone has other ideas.

I have no defense for the fact that I haven't disabled this feature, but I'd like to be insulted for the right reason. See also were and we're...

That interesting, I never thought of it as a by product of phones.
I'm thinking this is among the first instances of technology defining our grammar.
