I wasn’t suggesting you actually print out the recipe. Rather, many recipe sites have a “Print” version of the recipe which gives you the ingredient list and the directions without all the surrounding stuff that peeves you.

edit: For a random example, compare this with this.

I never knew about that option, thank you very much. You just made my culinary expeditions on the web a whole lot less frustrating!

It's as if the cook wants every one to see how pretty the dish is as opposed to how delicious it would be. I've always said that to be a great cook, you have to be an amalgamation of three people, one part Cezanne (eye appeal), one part Mozart (improvisational genius) & one part part Madame Curie (chemist). Get all three of these traits, and you create the most wonderful recipes.

It annoys me when you're chatting with someone over text and they say something you don't understand so you repeat it with a question mark at the end and they reply with a "yeah".

Companies that don't identify themselves when you call, phone etiquette here is very casual and have the time I can a business the person answer with "Hello" like I called somebody's house
