    You nailed it J. I can't stand a site that loads too slowly, but if I am really interested in the content, then sure, I'll wait a minute.

    The biggest turn down for me is ads, most importantly, pop-up ads. I don't actually get many pop-ups anymore, but there are still a few out there.

    Another big turn down for me is bad use of language. If a person can't figure out how to use their own language properly, then I have no interest in what they have to say. I know, that sounds a bit harsh, but I'm an education advocate, and I think that it's important that a professional website knows when to use "I" and when to use "me".

    Another thing that drives me away is long articles that carry on without ever making much sense....If I can get to the second paragraph without having a clue as to what the article is about, then I'll check out early.....Creative writing isn't always necessary, but damn, some people take "getting bored" like it's a personal goal in life to bore me....;)

    For me it's music/sound, it startles me when it's out of nowhere like that, so I tend to surf with my sound right off.

    Yeah, that's a big one for me too....I hate a website that talks to you or plays some moody music....I always find those type of sites in the middle of the night when my speakers are turned all the way up....
