Two of the most irritating posting habits around FR:

Another annoyance is linking to the home page of a blog or news source instead of the actual article. A link to a home page will break the next time the blogger posts or the news source goes to a new lead story. Instead, one should click through to the article by itself and then link to that page. Or look around for a an explicitly labeled permalink and copy its target URL.

Way true! It burns me up to see some moron post an article he found on Fox News and post the link as http://www.foxnews.com/
