    When people try to argue against someone's opinion by using their own opinion. If the topic is subjective, realize others will have a different opinion, and their opinion is no better or worse than your own.

    10. When a thread gains 12 pages of posts while you're at work/sleeping because you live on the other side of the world and you can't be bothered reading them to catch up.

    That or it gets locked :D

    I think you should respond to Mike. Maybe he will admit that you are right.
