What's the most annoying kind of Facebook update?

How many of you are guilty of these? I know I have over violated most of them at times. 

 24% Intentionally vague posts meant to generate concern and attention, a.k.a vaugebooking. "Jennifer wonders whether it's all been worth it." 

 20% Chronic complaining. "Ugh, who ordered this RAIN? It's making my carpal tunnel act up again?" 

 19% Meaningless calls to action. "If you want to fight world hunger, put the color of your socks as your status update for the next hand hour. I want to see who is brave enough to take a stand?" 

 14% Oversharing. "Note to self: Next time, wear a thing with a wrap dress." 13% Miscellaneous posts-including polarizing religious or political statements, indecipherable txt spk, and game updates. 

 10% Posting too frequently. "12:03: Chicken salad or Tuna? 12:12: Chicken! Thanks for the responses." If your friends are guilty of these, you can elimate them by moving your mouse to the right of the post, from the drop down menu you can limit the types of post you see from that friend or unsubscribe from their status updates, without removing them as a friend.
