Just found this which follows the same idea, sort of:

http://www.snubster.com/

"Online social networking sites like Friendster and the
extraordinarily popular Myspace typically ask their users to list stuff
they like -- their favorite bands, movies, books, etc. -- so they can
forge a connection with like-minded prospective friends. A new online
social networking site launched last month, Snubster, is turning this
idea on its head. Snubster can more accurately be described as an
anti-social networking site -- its goal is to bring people together
through their hates.

Members of Snubster focus on what irks them. Their lists are composed
of people or things that invoke their anger or distaste. Popular
targets of their disapproval: President Bush, guys who talk at urinals,
and bologna."

Yes! :D That is a classic pet hate of mine as well. Even worse when it is written down that way, 0207 xxx xxx. It's just wrong! The worst of it is you'll still find people who will argue that it is right!

My other completely pointless and irrational pet hate is people who wear their watches on their right-hand wrist. Wrong wrong wrong! :D

- People on the train (and everywhere) who yawn and don't cover their mouth. Errr - no, I don't want to see your tonsils and smell your stinky breath at 7.30 in the morning.

People who can't sit through a 2-hour play or film without talking, eating or going out for a cigarette break (and I speak as a smoker)...

Websites where domains without the www. prefix aren't correctly configured leading one either to a 404 page or worse still, the home page of the hosting company.

Mentioning no names...you know who you are *cough*...
