Certain words and expressions annoy me. Often they are connected to modern internet culture I guess. When I encounter constructions such as "don't be a pleb", "*** master race", or "that rustled my jimmies", I feel like I can't relate to the person using them anymore and I want to close the page.
I don't really understand why this is happening. Is it some form of perfectionism? Do I have very high standards when it comes to the beauty of speech? Am I just a grumpy old man hating on everything that's new? Why do I give these people the power to annoy me?
It’s because of some people’s unoriginality and lack of anything new to say, as well as a certain element of others trying too hard to fit in to a particular group, usually a group of dickheads. The Revenant aaaaaaaaaaaa meme and *intensifies* for example was never even funny the first time around, yet some cunts just can’t stop using it.
You’re a genuine person Memfis, and one who thinks a bit too carefully about what to say so I think it’s normal you feel that way. I’m a rash cunt and I feel the same. At the same time a little fun never hurt and is always the point of things, but these things just aren’t fun to non-spergs.

I feel like the truth value of this is independent of whether your annoyance is justified this time... Anyway, use of meme phrases that is offkey -- poor context, not grasping the nuances, the meme being outdated entirely -- can signal that the speaker is out of touch or trying too hard. Also specific words and expressions can get inextricably linked to types of people you might find annoying, or worse, to toxic cultures, to disingenuous arguments, to unscrupulous people, as with many alt-right or MRA pet words.
I... have seen things. Images. Forums. Message boards. Places too dark - too horrible - places that scorch the soul and burn out the eyes.
I see OwO, and I translate "Owooo, what's this?" as some degenerate furry pulls at another man's erection through the confines of a fursuit. Because that's what it means. And them, the sort of unrepentant faggot who would ever deign to use OwO in a sentence... those individuals are - to a man - exactly the sort of people who have a moldering, spunk-saturated fursuit in the cupboards of their basement; threadbare, torn arsehole, two unblinking ceramic eyes that stare ceaselessly into the dark, waiting.... waiting for the day...
