Blog, wiki, netiquette and podcast are among the webs most annoying words, according to a YouGov poll.
Pollsters questioned 2,091 adults earlier this month for the poll commissioned by the Lulu Blooker Prize, a literary award for books.
Topping the list of words most likely to make web users "wince, shudder or want to bang your head on the keyboard" was 'folksonomy', a term for a web classification system.
'Blogosphere', the collective name for blogs or online journals, was second, while 'blog' itself was voted third. 'Netiquette', or internet etiquette, came fourth and 'blook', a book based on a blog was voted the fifth most annoying internet term. 'Podcast' scrapped into the Top Ten alongside 'wiki', 'avatar' and 'user-generated content'.
