Intellectually Violent Blogging
I hate bloggers that try to impress by using unobvious acronyms. This can make an article and author look more impressing than they really are, but results in the reader either ignoring the blog post because he doesn't understand the material or spending time looking up definitions that even Google doesn't have an immediate answer for.

Quite often, the authors intent was too look smart. This is a form of intellectual violence and an indication that the blogger doesn't know how to communicate.

On Twitter, this problem is inevitable, as we try to communicate in 140 characters. When blogging, it's simply a knock on the author.
