What sorts of pettiness do you despise? I despise people who think too highly of themselves.
Ouija Jammy PREDICTS!: This is a dead thread!

How is that petty?
Knee-jerk lying, defensiveness, and people who are constantly making accusations against others as a defense mechanism. We live in a society, it requires a modicum of indulgence. If you really love to fight so much, become a lawyer.
Snitches. Everybody today is a secret policeman's dream.
Mothers who put themselves before their children and always have.
People who constantly want to be forgiven but never find it in their heart to let go of even the smallest offense.
Just let it go already.
I despise people who try to find ways to embellish and broadcast their own pettiness in despising others.
Got that, OP?
Somebody (R7) got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning!
I despise the woman who lied in a material way about something she sold me on eBay this week, then characterized my reaction as "buyer's remorse."
No, it was "Seller lied."
Oh, and she tried to manipulate me by saying "I am a Christian."
I hate ALL kinds of pettiness!

Gay men are THE WORST when it comes to this.
Probably because so many of them were hall monitors in grade school.
I've got to agree with R2. OP started a thread and put the wrong content in it.

You mean like a queen?
I hate the political correctness of women. It's their passive-aggressive way of gaining power over a situation. In the end, Little Miss Hall Monitor believes she will triumph because she's memorized the Policies 'n Procedures Handbook.
You even see it in the lesbians (Michfest, Datalounge, etc.). Just depressing.

I think this is a symptom of Borderline Personality Disorder, which appears to be rampant these days.
Republicunt R 4 in the "Republicans for Gay Marriage" thread strikes me as having a borderline personality.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
