What I find incredible is when someone ask a question and they don't get the answer they want or in THEIR required time frame they go ballistic and start attacking. C'mon People. The folks on this board have other lives. Maybe your question got missed. Maybe someone else may have a better answer. DIS (and the world) is full of prima dona's that think you owe them something. NOW.

Or how about this one. When someone doesn't like an attraction or resort and they start attacking it and the CM's that work there. Ok. You had a bad experience. We all do. You can post that. But when they start attacking over and over and over........It gets old. And obviously someone likes it.

My pet peeve is posters telling other posters how they should post, and what topics are ok to post.

My actual pet peeve would be posters who insist that everything will go right on other poster's vacations, and that all will be Fairy Dust and Sunshine.

Stuff does go wrong, even at WDW. Things get stolen, your "guaranteed connecting rooms" may end up not so guaranteed, and they may close the pool down without telling the guests ahead of time. Don't insist you are positive nothing will go wrong! You do no one any favors by doing that. Give people all the facts and let them make informed decisions.

JOKING!!!

1) I agree entirely

2) People whose subject lines are too vague. "WHAT DO YOU THINK I SHOULD DO?!?!?!" "HELP PLEASE!" "TACOS!"

3) Which brings up the urgency factor - you don't need to type in caps and use that many punctuation marks if you're just trying to figure out which pool is better for your family of 17 for your stay in August 2016.... That's not pressing and yelling doesn't help anyone... hahah That sort of subject-line and text should be reserved for things like "I'm at POR stuck in my room with an alligator in the bathroom and the floor is getting covered in lava and phones don't work just my internet signal could someone please call the resort for me and have them help me out?!"

Well since you asked...my pet pet peeves are...


The posters that have self appointed themselves as as Disney parking, swimming pool, resort mug use etc. police. So one or two posters kindly state the rules but is it really necessary for the entire parking or mug use police force to jump all over the OP?

I also have to agree with the poster who stated the nastiness on the boards was their pet peeve. I have been around the DIS a long time, even before the 1999 server crash, and it seems to have gotten so much worse in the last 5 years or so. Or maybe I have just gotten more sensitive?

My pet peeve is threads about pet peeves....yet I've read the whole thing!

I guess I don't really have a pet peeve on the boards, but it does make me snicker when someone starts a thread that says something like," Help!!!! Which ride/attraction/show/store/restaurant/etc.? I'm leaving tomorrow!!!!" And then I see no one responded and it's been days since they posted. Hope they figured it out.

Agree with this one. No need to be nasty with people.

But....one other one....and while realizing that the Dis is a great resource for information and planning...I do NOT for the life of me understand why people who are "Here Now" and need an answer to question about the place where they are....don't simply walk out of their door and go get an answer, instead of posting on an Internet board and wait for an answer...from people who aren't there right now...

This! . I've been around a while also even if it doesn't look like it. I had another user id once (years ago), lost all that info and decided it was easier to just start over.....

I can understand a first time visitor being overwhelmed with resort choices and wanting help making their selection. But they need to give us enough information to give them an informed opinion based on THEIR needs, not what works best for us. Most of my trips are solo, so my needs aren't going to be the same as a family of five. If you tell me it's your first visit, you have little kids and want to spend most of your time at MK, but you're on a very strict budget . . .that gives me something to work with.

I also think that a lot of the "here now" threads come up because people are new, and they have read here many times that CM's aren't reliable (which we know some are, and some aren't ) So if they have asked a couple different CM's and received two different answers, I don't have a problem with them asking here as well. But it would be nice if they let us know that they checked at the front desk and the lobby concierge and got two different answers when they post.

So I guess my pet peeve is not having enough info in the original post to really be able to help someone out.

When did they start teleporting? My last vacation I had to walk everywhere. Darn.

I get what you're saying man! Seriously, though, for those of us who are on here a lot and try to answer questions honestly, we also know some posters who will always post the exact same thing whether or not it applies to that particular situation.

Yes, we KNOW you didn't like the room location and we KNOW that you didn't like the walk from the parking lot so we KNOW that you won't stay there again. But that's a specific situational answer to a general question about a resort, and doesn't help anybody. It just gives you another opportunity to complain!

My peeve, mentioned already, is "will I like?" or "which xxx for a 4 yo boy", "tell me the good, bad and ugly about ..." or as others have mentioned, "how do I get upgraded/special/secret stuff".

I also wish more people would realize that there is a giant website called WDWINFO that has so much information that you should read BEFORE you ask questions. That's step 1 before searching the DISboards.

Thanks for the soap box. All said in love of course.
