The worst offender is YouTube. Every time they "upgrade" YouTube, it gets harder and harder to navigate. They've got it now where it's impossible to rearrange the order of your view of Playlists, and it's been like that for more than a year, and somehow, it is too hard for them to do something as elementary as enable an alphabetizer, even though it does alphabetize them on the drop down menu for the save command.

What I really hate on an increasing number of sites, is when I go to their portal, they blast out an audio ad, and it's nearly impossible to find the cancel-X, and often even hard to locate the ad that's running, and there is nothing to do except turn off your speakers, which you can't do if youre listening to music from another source while surfing.

I guess that's just a preview of the Internet Of The Future.

I really like it when the slightest mouse over pops up shiiit that I really do not want - I am old but I can still click if I want to see something Now I have to mouse around and click just to get rid of the shiiit that I didn't want to begin with

You leave the house long enough to go to a restaurant ?

I don't understand your hatred for Facebook.
Could be because there you don't have the moderators to protect you.
