Open Forum: Your Biggest Design/Development Pet Peeves

Today, I’d like to open the “floor” for discussion, with a topic I think we can all talk about: what annoys us most about design and development, whether it’s something during the creation process, or something annoying you see being practiced around the Web.

To get the ball rolling, I’ll say that autoplaying music or video clips are a fairly annoying practice, as is un-descriptive navigation (not making it clear what the user is clicking on). During the design/development process, I get more frustrated by how a single misplaced comma or semicolon can break a whole CSS style sheet or PHP script, and how finicky MySQL is about how calls to the database are formatted. (Does an extra space matter THAT much? Apparently so! LOL)

So, what are your pet peeves? Share them with me in the comments!
