Mine is people who constantly refer to Switzerland as "Swiss" …..

Ie, "I have just moved to Swiss"
Same here. And when it's pointed out, they usually claim they "of course know" that the country's not called Swiss, but "wanted to save time" - really? And how much time exactly does it save to type only 5 instead of 11 letters?

I'm torn on the issue of using the search function. Many questions are specific enough for an own thread, though they might be similar to other situations. But stuff like "can you post some English job websites please" - yeah, first, there's this thing called Google, second, there's a sticky in this forum on this topic.

The flip side is people using the search function, finding some thread from 2009 and then posting their question in it. Well it's probably OK then to open a new one in this case
