Sites where every article has the same date - today's.
Spelling and grammar.
Colour scheme with almost zero contrast between text and background.
Text that deliberately flows over an image and some words fade into the background.
Articles that aren't all that long, but are split over multiple pages to fake the number of "pages" viewed. I hate clicking through an article one or two paragraphs at a time. I want to scroll.
Pages with some sort of css or jquery advertising popup box where the cancel button for it is outside the viewport on a netbook.
Code examples that can't possibly work, or don't do what the text says they should.
Long pages without a set of links to the various sections placed in a navbox at the top of the page.
FAQ pages with questions that no-one actually asks and a lack of answers to stuff that people do actually ask.
People that use the work "actually" twice in the same sentence.
Q&A sites with obviously incorrect or out of date answers, but where the question has been closed and no further answers or comments are allowed. Double points if the page contains no dates.
Sites with so many flashing and blinking ads that you almost have a seizure looking at it.
People that post "it doesn't work" as their sole error report and expect someone to fix it using crystal balls, mind-reading and guesswork.
