Most hated web words

An Engine Room regular has written in to tell us about a recent YouGov poll in which 2,000 web users voted for their most hated internet word or phrase. The top ten are:

1. Folksonomy (a user-generated classification system)
2. Blogosphere
3. Blog
4. Netiquette
5. Blook (a book based on a blog)
6. Webinar
7. Vlog (a video log)
8. Social networking
9. Cookie
10. Wiki / podcast / avatar / user-generated content

Not bad that only one of them has been an Engine Room 'word of the day'! Any other hated web words out there?
