How to be annoying while on instant messenger:

- Always say "huh? you there????" when your friend takes more than 5 seconds to type a message.
- make sure u nvr use full sentences, and nevr chek ur spelling
- Hit the "nudge" button as much as possible
- use annoying and hard-to-read fonts and colors
- Insist on using a friggen WEBCAM on an internet connection slower than my dead grandmother (sigh....)
- Always send those weird animations that take over the entire screen

Any other ideas? C'mon, lets banish all that "u, ur" crap :D :D

Type "no" when asked.



- make sure u nvr use full sentences, and nevr chek ur spelling

Don't answer them.



- Hit the "nudge" button as much as possible

What is that?



- use annoying and hard-to-read fonts and colors

Use Finch, like I do :-)



- Insist on using a friggen WEBCAM on an internet connection slower than my dead grandmother (sigh....)

Sorry about your grandmother (and your internet connection).



- Always send those weird animations that take over the entire screen

Use Finch.

Have a name filled with foreign characters that vaguely look like your name in the Roman Alphabet, also toped up with many emoticons.

Have custom emoticons that will pop up in the middle of words you type like "look" with two eyes in the middle.

Oh god I hate that!!
They constantly change it too so it takes time to figure out who it is.

You're always going to get this things on IM. "u" and "ur" are a fair bit quicker to type, and the vast majority of people can understand what they mean. The other things you said though I have to agree with.

One thing that peeves me off on IM though, is when people put stuff other than their name or internet alias in their "name" field. You should put whatever other comment that you want everyone else to see IN YOU COMMENT SECTION!!

The fact that people can "appear" offline in most protocols only serves to exasperate this syndrome. Couple that with the fact that you can receive offline messages in most protocols, and you get what you have above.

I'm betting you are not a two finger typist. When you have to stare at the keyboard and look for letters it definitely is faster.

So learn how to type.

Let's say you type 25wpm (not a bad rate for a hunt and peck typer). You have to write a 10 page paper for some reason. Average page with 12 point font and double-spacing puts about 400 words for page. 4000 words at 25wpm means that 160 minutes -> 2 hours and 40 minutes are just spent typing. I type 100 words a minute. 40 minutes typing.

Now let's extrapolate that. Let's say that, on average, you type somewhere in the area of 1000 words a day between IMs, email, forum posts, and work. 5000 words a week, 260000 a year. That means 10400 minutes per year just typing, about 173 hours.

If you can type 100wpm, that's only 2600 minutes, 43 hours. That's a difference of 130 hours, that's 5.4 solid days of time you're spending typing words that I'm not.

This is, of course, assuming a fixed rate of words, I could do the same exercise with the fixed time spent typing and show how much more typing you'd get done, but my point here was to emphasis efficiency.

EDIT: by the way, 1000 words isn't a lot. This post (counting this part at the end) is 235 words. So that's averaging just over four posts like this per day. That's all.

I'm betting you are not a two finger typist. When you have to stare at the keyboard and look for letters it definitely is faster.

When you type u and ur when a hunt-and-peck typist it doesn't help you to learn how to type. Really, such shortcuts in typing is just plain rude. Millions of other people have mastered the skill to a level where they can touch type at least most of the time and with decent speed/accuracy. It took them months, if not years, of practice. The end result is people aren't forced to spend time figuring out what they're trying to say. In the end people who can't be bothered to learn how to type are essentially saying, "my time is more important than yours" because they can't be bothered to take the time learn how to type and so the people they converse with are bothered with having to take the time to decipher what these people are trying to say. PAH!

For the record I taught myself touch typing and I do it completely wrong. I have no concept of home rows nor do I restrict my fingers to certain letters. I sometimes use the thumb on the same finger to hit shift on a letter I want to alphabetize (I being a prime example) so I am not a hunt-and-peck typist but I'm not as fast as a traditionally trained typist could be either. Even then I spell them you and your.

As for the way to annoy me in AIM (aside from the above, clearly). pwn. You know, it was cute for about 10 minutes back when it first started to flitter around the on-line games almost 2 decades ago. It's time to let it die. Hell, I cannot even use the same word for "cool" now as I did when that vileness first appeared. Rad and Gnarly are dated thrice over. DIE, pwn, DIE!

I use Adium on OSX and have a bunch of scripts that generate random messages.

/adams for a random Douglas Adams quote. Completely cryptic to somebody who hasn't read H2G2.
/holy for "holy <SOMETHING> Batman!", where SOMETHING is chosen at random.
/guy for a random family guy quote.
%bash for a random message from http://bash.org

When I don't want to talk, my usual IM session goes something like this :
/holy
/holy
/adams
%bash
/adams
/holy
/guy
%bash
%bash
.
.
.
.

People usually sign off after a few "/holy"s.

I am a two finger typist (I know, I really should learn to type properly) and I don't find it any faster to use such stupid shortcuts as "u" and I can type without looking at the keyboard. In fact I typed all this without looking at the keyboard. I can type decently fast like this.

My god, I just realised that one of my friends is the stereotypical worst ever IM'er. He sends the huge animations, the animation when he types two letter O's, he used to send nudges and buzzes all the while until I told him to stop, he uses red text, he goes online and offline quickly (and does 'appear offline' messaging and wonders why I can't respond!), and he uses emoticons in his handle.

I also have friends who use a million different garbage characters in their names.

I also hate it when the person puts their handle as a really crap song lyric, but doesn't actually include their name in their handle. Leaving you to guess from the e-mail address who it actually is.

A two finger typist is a person who doesn't know where the keys are. They stare at the keyboard and look for the letters and use either index finger to press the letter(hunt and peck). You obviously aren't a two finger typist since you can type without looking at the keyboard

Ah, I see. However, I actually do type with just two fingers, but it's definitely not hunt and peck.

I've had half of these happen, honestly tough I don't know why people don't put spaces in their replacements, after all, what good is OK becoming some big flashing graphic if it makes the word "spoke" impossible to read, and as for the oo, well that's just annoying.

Oh, and I've started getting revenge on people, if they talk to me with stupid things like that too often I start empoying the "USE PHP and the GD lib localy to make a nice image with a transparant background and white text, then throw that on a page and send them a link" tactic, it works rather well(even better since I edited my code to let PHP use FTP to upload to my server), although some people send some gerbled mess afterwards, I'm not sure what they are trying to say then though, since they don't learn(so I don't, they stop MSNing me and start using email, which is smarter in the first place anyway, I check MSN maybe 2 times a day, I check my emails about 20 times an hour(which is about right, checkgmail loads it every 3 minutes, and I always know the isntant a new message has arived if I'm at the computer))

although in pidgin its /buzz or something else.

the buzz nudge or whatever button in msn is quite possibly the most annoying thing ever. your surfing the web then suddenly a msn window pops up and some flash animation starts playing or your window starts spazzing out and your like OH MY JESUS WHAT IS GOING ON??? and then you find out its just msn and you have to go the hospital for a heart attack.

luckily, pidgin just says "someone send you a nudge!" and doesn't do any of that shaking crap

Also, if anyone ever uses the word "literally", you get blocked too, until a time when you look the word up in a dictionary and use it in its proper context.

You could just-have one worded replies.

:) That's pretty annoying right?

I put up with that person for a few reasons, biggest one being that once you remind him to turn caps lock off(he's an idiot, he left capslock on when he set his password, so from now on he thinks he needs caps lock on to log on, which means till someone tells him to turn it off he doesn't realise, kinda sad really) he's a really nice person, a bit strange, but then who isn't?

A two finger typist is a person who doesn't know where the keys are. They stare at the keyboard and look for the letters and use either index finger to press the letter(hunt and peck). You obviously aren't a two finger typist since you can type without looking at the keyboard

Two finger typing? That's nothing!

"I Ttype in IKM wiothn][ ,myn fo9 fist1"
(I type with my fist!)

Being annoying in IM conversations is even easier than that, though. Just run whatever you were going to say through Unintelligencer (http://unintelligencer.com/)...
Sample:
beeun annoyyyyyyyyyying in im conversattttions iz een easier hten dat, tho. jus run whatever u wurr going tew say threw unintelllllllligencer...

I have zero patience on messenger. As soon as anyone types LOL, OMG or anything with any kind of nerd abbreviation then its BLOCK. Email me if you want to talk to me and I might unblock you.

Also, if anyone ever uses the word "literally", you get blocked too, until a time when you look the word up in a dictionary and use it in its proper context.

:)

Lol! like omg that is literally the worst reason to block someone on a instant messenger!

I's magic

Go to Character Map in the menu and click on Common in the left thing, scroll down a few screens to get to the good stuff.

For the upside down text there is a site (http://www.revfad.com/flip.html) that basically does the same thing for you, converting regular letters into the upside down Unicode equivalents.
Coincidentally this would be annoying to your IM victim.

I'd recomend editing that to remove emails, just in case.

And yeah, pretty good reason why it's marked as spam, personaly I'd have just ignored it, mail in my spam folder is there for a reason :P

When you write an entire paragraph on what you did today, and the person simply replies with "lol" -_-

When someone tells you to IM them instead of calling them, then starts getting mad because you IM them. :P

One annoying thing is to immediately log off when someone messages you, and than when you log back on accuse them of logging off.... somebody did that to me once several times over, and it was incredibly annoying.

Might have been covered before but:

When someone says "gotta go, bye" and doesn't give you a second to reply and say goodbye. Especially annoying when you are in the middle of typing a few sentences.

It just comes off as rude. I can maybe understand having to go in a hurry, but when you end every convo like that, you need to learn some e-manners or something.

When people phone you and they are like "Go on MSN, I want to tell you something".

Start getting all pissy when we can't hold a constant conversation. I have better things to do than focus ALL my attention on you.

Spell something completely wrong and still expect me to know what you meant, then call me a "grammar freak" when I correct you.
