‘Blog’, ‘netiquette’ and ’cookie’ are some of the most hated words the web has produced, according to a YouGov poll.

But the word most likely to make people ‘wince, shudder or want to bang your head on the keyboard’ was ‘folksonomy’ – the term for a web classification system.

‘Blogosphere’ and ‘blog’ were second and third respectively, while ‘netiquette’ was fourth, and ‘blook’, a book based on a blog, fifth.

YouGov conducted the poll on behalf of web publisher Lulu.com.

Here’s the list in full:
