This is a project born out of frustration with morons at work. We started to keep a list of names of the people who bugged us the most, soon we ran out of room on the piece of paper that held the golden names, so it became my mission to come up with a better method, an electronic method. Something that could be held external to the company for our own protection, and a means to rank the twunts! So here we have it, The Twunt List.

Small, simple, but it does the job nicely. All you need is PHP and MySQL. Just edit the c.php file to your own SQL settings, then run install.php. Your Twunt list is ready to go!

btw, don't ask what a Twunt is, a Twunt is whatever you want it to be ;) :p

edit: made some small changes, new version attached.

Seems a little rude to keep a list of annoying people. They may be annoying, but maybe they just don't realize it.

it isn't rude at all. but most of the time i don't keep a list. I just tell them they are annoying idiots and tell them to go away.

There was once a guy at my workplace who started getting the nickname "Junior". When he finally asked why people called him that, his exasperated coworker/supervisor said, "Because you're going to be a junior engineer all your life!"
