Capitalization rules!!!
5. The Guy Who only Posts to Tell People They are Wrong
Some subjectivity as to what gets upper case, but the word "only" is misplaced above.

The guy who was off the forum for a few months/years, returns, then claims everything has changed and the forum sucks now.

You forgot the Moral High Ground Schmuck, who request threads to be closed because they don't meet his "Quality". Or he's offend and can't take it. So he breaks forum rules by telling mods how to run the forum. And by default is questioning a mods decision.

23, The Godfather... this is a forum member that everyone takes his word as golden, and if anyone questions anything about anything he posts (or seemingly slights them in any way) a whole range of brown-nosing do-gooders shows up to defend that person.

Being the middle-child people pleaser, I might be taken as the guy who tries to get along with everyone...except I still manage to annoy people from time to time, so I absolve myself. Are you annoyed? Stuff it.
