Default Web forums pet peeve

This is something that's annoys me...

I do a lot of Google searches for Android related questions amongst other things. I come across forums where you have to be a member just to see a link of any kind that one of their members posted!

Just to let THEM know, I mostly skip your forums in the Google search results because I refuse to be sucker punched into your forum just to grab a link.

I've done it in the past, and now am a member of forums I have forgotten the name of just to get a link. I can understand a file download, but a link? C'mon man! lol

I think that's an absurd way to try and corral new members.

I agree it may be a little much, but in the end that's there way of doing things.
A guest shouldn't be able to go anywhere, but at least be able to go to some parts of the forum and and click on links. Every forum has there way of doing things and I respect that.

More times than not, I just skip over these types of forums in search results.

Amen sistah! i agree! and i hate sites that tells me that something is FREE but you have to enter a credit card info to become a member. There was this PBS channel (8 in my area) where i wanted to get some of their "FREE" itallian recipes and dessserts! Guess what? I started filling out the FREE membership and there was actually a "SCREEN TWO" for fillign out.... for a Recoipe site? Two pages to fill out... the second page was CREDIT CARD INFO stating i wont get charged, yada yada........ i hate it when this happens!

I feel the same way. I don't mind using forums and sites that require Disqus. It lets you use a pseudonym.

Here in China to join any forum, you have to verify who you are, so there's like no anonymity. It's the law here. Usually it's done with the forum or website sending a SMS to your phone with a code, that you enter when registering. You MUST give your mobile number, and to buy a SIM you have to show ID.

When you go to an internet bar in China you have to show ID. Although I've never been asked to show ID, probably because I'm obviously foreign.

I suspect the US Govt. would like the above to happen as well. So they know who you are, i.e. no anonymity on the interwebs.

Thats a bit scary to think your actual personal info being stored on more databases the more you join a forum.

Whats scary here is we are already tracked by ip address. To add personal info is a hacker's dream database waiting to be mined.

Maybe one country is at least thinking otherwise:

BTW - is there a smiley for tongue-in-cheek?

There's something else that happens in China, with the free Wi-Fi you find at Starbucks, McDonald's etc. There's always a landing page and you have to verify who you are, usually it's done with your mobile number. It can problem for tourists, who usually don't have a Chinese mobile number, and the landing/verification pages are nearly always only in Chinese.

I hate sites that want you to LOGIN with a Facebook or Twitter account. I used to read Digg just for something to do. They reorganized and now you can only login with FB, Twitter or G+. Yahoo still has the option of your own login. I'm guessing there's a few other sites that don't have their own login but use the big 3.

No thanks.

I normally log in with my FB, say what I need to say, then go back to my FB and remove the access.

It's probably just less work for them to maintain than having their own logins.

Now as I don't have an FB, Twitter or G+ account it's telling me that they don't want me. Fair enough, I'll usually decide that the feeling is mutual

You're right. Seem like more and more sites are getting this way. Went to download a file from a forum, and the service the guy used to host the file demanded you make an account, or use facebook or twitter.... lol

I bet I know why, on my local news site comment section, people get pretty nasty and racist.

Maybe they are trying to curb it by using a facebook logon, to be more accountable for you comments. I know one can make a fake account and all, the average joe isn't going to think of that though.

FB is now partnering and running comments thru Avast. If FB is scanning all this stuff, then the stations probably don't have to or aren't liable for malware or other sundry misuse of posting.

I have or "had" a pet peeve witn at&t wireless forum. Suppose to be a site for fellow customers to discuss issues gokd and bad with hopes to find some resolution. There were "goonmods" who would sweep any post that related to a bad csr experience and one mod who would remove posrs that had no personal info like one dod when I reviewed and demo'd an app that could auto-detect a phone number.

I cant recall the full details.and dont care ro remember the lrdeal. But this GOON removed several posts where my demo displayed a BOGUS phone number "123-456-7890" then sent me a nastygram sayiing NEVER question a goon's decision.


I questioned it and demanded another mod "look" at what was yanked.....it got republished.....and I got "cough" suspended.........needlesstosay.....i R O F L! and told them where to stuff it.

my pet peeve is not as dramatic and unfortunately I get guilty of it myself but its when someone says to go get this but gives no link. Yes I admit I to get caught up in the moment and forget to link someone something but as soon as I remember the link goes up.

Default This Peeve Is On My Top 10 List

I put this peeve up at #1,2, or 3 on my list, depends on.coming across something you KNOW will always out-do itself. Has anyone posted this yet?

I hate NOSEY PHISHY SITES where you want to post a comment where, for example, the site "allows" you to log onto your "Google" gmail account.....then pops up this "Almost Done" messags "asking" permission for the site's YAHOOers or whomever is affiliated, to GAIN ACCESS to everything youve posted and received , web browsing history, EVERYTHING tracked in your Google account........just to have the lofty privy to post a comment.

Then when you politely decline the nice request...you get this "red lettered" "THIS SITE REQUIRES ACCESS TO YOUT ACCOUNT BEFORE ALLOWING YOU TO POST....yadayada.."

Sheesh! The nerve.

If you don't post there, they lose the ad revenue exposure and you vote with your feet. If demand is curtailed, they'll figure out why or fade into obscurity.

There are reasons why the top internet sites are at the spots they are
