Bonus round: Most Annoying People on the Internet: http://www.buzzfeed.com/robinedds/types-of-troll-youll-meet-on-the-internet#llicq1

For me, personally, the most annoying of the annoying is the online troll who comments on posts and videos he/she has not read and/or does not have the education to understand. Without appropriate knowledge and lacking any sort of hubris or filter, he/she plunges ahead with canned challenges and questions that aren't truly questions but are designed solely to belittle and/or prove his/her superiority. Because of such folks, and my time restrictions, I have cancelled peoples' abilities to comment on my Google+ sites, particularly the one for my church blog. It's a shame, but necessary. Wow, how that annoys me!
