What does "rude" have to do with it? We're being asked our pet peeves for today and I gave one.

It didn't say, "give a pet peeve that everyone agrees with, one that is not rude." My God, man.

No rep point for you!

Ridiculous.

Just give the person rep points with your name attached. Why announce it to the world?
Alexus, if this is the worst pet peeve you can come up with, life must be pretty good for you

Look, many times we would like to rep a particular post because it was SO good, but we can't because C-D limits the amount of times you can rep someone. So announcing on a thread we would have liked to have repped a post is almost as good as repping it, see? It shows that you are in agreement with what the poster wrote and you want them to know it - it's a friendly gesture, that's all.
