Wait for the poll. Simple question: Do you get annoyed by when people reply with just the word "fail", or "phail", or things like that?

I find that it's terribly overused, and often times unecessary. Plus it's absolutely useless, and barely contributes anything at the most.

I do realize that it's very likely that people will reply to this thread with "fail", "phail", "epic phail", or something like that because they think it is clever.

I don't really mind if people post an explanation for why something phails. For example:

"This thread was done about an hour ago.

Phail"

would be fine by me, whereas

"Phail"

would piss me off.

i dont like it when people spell it 'phail', other than that, it doesnt bother me

man, you start a lot of threads

no offense, madcap, but you care too much about this stuff. UG is not gonna stop being an immaturity convention anytime soon, so we'll all have to deal with the memes and stuff.

Anyway, yeah, 'phail' ain't that great. It wasn't funny to start with. It's not witty.

I hate it but I don't let it get to me. The only people who do it are 13-16 year old kids that have no friends.

There's a time and a place, and it has become incredibly overused as of late.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

At least it takes less than a second to ignore. I'd rather have someone write "/phail" than someone making a failure of a paragraph in response to a topic.

depending on the situation it can be really funny, but a lot of times it is stupid.

My bro says 'Fail' in real life. makes me feel like killing

Depends on the context.

I actually find it kind of amusing, in the proper situations. I don't use it a lot, but the only time it annoys me is when it's used by the really ignorant people, or by trolls, basically just using it as a catalyst to start something petty.

Otherwise, I'll get a slight chuckle out of it.
