The six worst things I hate about lists

1. There is an annoying tendency of bloggers to resort to lists to connect random thoughts rather than writing a coherent article
2. Worse still they call it the “eight greatest..” or the “five worst..” and did they do any actual polling to find out which are the most important? I think not.
3. They have lots of similar points and don’t clearly distinguish between them.
4. They repeat themselves a lot and haven’t really thought through the points.
5. It would be OK if they were checklists that you could usefully use to make sure that you have done everything.. but they are not.
6. You get the feeling that the number of items in the list is dictated just by their attention span.
