When you post something and someone else posts something unrelated and it goes to the next page.
Also when people say that things that haven't happened to them trigger them.

It could be solved with a simple PM rather than an entire post.

An exception is if it's contained within a significantly large post.

I hate it when people post rule tables for non-totalistic rules. (Yes, I know some people are on mobile, but they can just generate them themselves. [citation needed])

OK this is a very niche one that I hadn't remembered until a few hours ago.
You know in some arcades they give you this string of cardboard tickets you can redeem for stuff, usually meant for kids.
The tickets fold beautifully perfectly packed if you order them one right, one left - zigzagging.
When people fold them randomly in any direction giving a clearly low density packing with loads of strain, I just think omg why on Earth would you do that?! Surely they'd have realised by now? It's not that crazy to realise? Surely there is a clear preference for having them well packed; nobody would prefer an unwieldy mess?!

Also when I'm typing anything and I finish writing it and it just goes to the next line or just goes to the next page. Especially when the punctuation mark at the end brings the last word down one line. This also applies to writing in a notebook: I finish writing something but the very last thing goes to a new page.

... you were referencing me before i changed it, weren't you? because I had fit both of those.

ON A DIFFERENT NOTE.

When i want to rotate a hexagonal file but golly refuses because for some reason it calculates hexagonal patterns on a square grid and that really bugs me because if you want to show that something has six sides you don't show it with four and it makes more sense to have the grid be changed to hexagonal but I understand Von Neumann because no shape exists (that I know of) that has 4 corners and no edges but COME ON WHY?! WHY DO YOU REPRESENT HEXAGONS WITH SQUARES?!

In all seriousness this bothers me and must be fixed or I will SINGLEHANDEDLY eat a universe.
EDIT: possibly this one.
EDIT 2:

HAS
BEGUN.

Actually, I don't remember who I was referencing, but I don't think it was you, and if it was, it wasn't personal.

People posting tons of "new" discoveries that have been known for decades, showing that they've not observed standard netiquette by reading the forums a while before posting, nor done the most minimal research about whether things have been already known, despit repeated posts about where to find such resources (e.g. jslife, wiki, Life lexicon, etc.).

People posting tons of useless "new" discoveries that take longer to post than to find (e.g. "look what happens when I put this blinker next to this beehive").

Newbies with attitudes, who think they know more than people who have been part of the community for years or even decades.

Posts where the quoted text is substantially longer than added text. Especially "me too" posts.

People whose signatures are longer than the actual text of their posts.

People whose signatures include graphics or pattern files, especially ones that are just human-readable text.

Improper grammar, spelling, and punctuation (although I've gotten used to that; long-term use of the internet has made me rather fluent in typo, both reading and writing). Imperfect English is not unreasonable from people for whom English is not a primary language, but from English speakers, it is a symptom of sloppiness that can also manifest in other areas.
