Filed as News on June 21, 2007 10:47 am

The Agence France Presse (AFP) reports that blog, netiquette, cookie, and wiki have been voted among the most irritating words spawned by the Internet, according to a poll done by YouGov. On top of the list is folksonomy, a term for web classification system. Blogosphere is second, while the term blog is third, followed by netiquette. Cookie and wiki were also included.

YouGov questioned 2,091 adults earlier this month for the poll commissioned by the Lulu Blooker Prize, a literary award for books.
