I can't really narrow down to one massive pet peeve. Here's my top five, in no order:
1) Wiping hits --- I WILL HAUNT YOUR DREAMS IF I CATCH YOU!!!
2) The occasional theft like what Exdee described
3) People who think it's hilarious to unload half a hopper into the back of your head at 3 feet away at almost 30bps.
4) People who work at paintball places and just don't give a crap.
5) The paintball vs airsoft debate. < Do not touch that

(try sending a "staple gun" through customs - it will probably be held up for a few weeks)
I agree it would be nice to call it what it is, but unfortunately "gun" has such negative connotations
when talking about it to other people in the sport i dont care too much, but when people talk about it in a public forum (TV, radio etc) i think it is better to use "marker" as it reduces the chance of giving someone an opportunity to misinterpret or exploit

So the kid didn't understand what a cocker was, He was confused and thought he was right. We have those people on every forum.
This is how we got to the notion of PBN being for *******s, Spec ops for Mil-Sim nutbags and TechPB for 13 year olds.
there are Amazing people and awesome posts on PBN, there is/was really a rather large following of speedball markers and pumps on Spec ops (B-Dazle posted at least 1 trillion paragraphs on his love for his mini on the dang forums when he got it)
and Techpb actually.....well it does have a young crowd. But you will still find many older members who love to post on the information and more modern and up to date information of guns, The entire Punk-works section is Filled with Scientific method. bitches LOVE scientific method!
(Note, NOT to pick on you. But your post was an Excellent example for my point)

I once saw someone post on a FS thread on PBN for a VSC Phantom:
Heyy bro nise gat trade 4 sig u add 350
It was some ego 7 or 8 or something like that.
The seller replied "Um, no, as you can see it's FS only, I need $ for new tires"
and the moron came back and said "Well if yu change ur mind lmk thx"
I tried to bitchslap him through my computer
A couple things to point out that annoy me: "Gat", "Sig" (it annoys me when people just say trade for sig, or even more a post that just says "sig." and nothing else), text speak, and the fact that he wanted him to add the same amount as the seller's asking price...
