Cybertalk rubbing you the wrong way?

by Shirley Connor, CBC News

A poll published Thursday cites "netiquette," "cookie" and "wiki" as words that grate on the nerves of web surfers. But the grand prize winner is "folksonomy."

Quick, know what that means?

It's the name for a web classification system, but apparently not a popular term among those surveyed by the British YouGov pollsters. The 2,091 adults surveyed didn't much like "cookie," "blog," or "blook" much either.

Which words make you, to use their terms -- wince, shudder or want to bang your head on the keyboard?

Nominations are now open.
