    The brown by lineto look similar to apercu, but more versatile

    i don't like much "Circular" not too much style and the lower case "t"

    Comic is just overly used for years... with so many cool free fonts, I don't get it

    Arial. It's just a bad clone but available for free and over used.

    Thirsty Script, ’cause it's the go-to font when a brand wants to be "hipster."

    Its a classic, but I really dislike optima, particularly the heavy weights... or perhaps I should say that I dislike how Optima has been used. It was comic sans before comic sans existed!

    Bello

    It's not a bad font, but over used (and badly most of the time)

    I have to say Gotham (the "new helvetica"). It's a very good font, but it's overused these days.

    Helvetica, we have a love hate relationship.

    It was one of my early favorites but Helvetica's use is overly saturated.

    It is in my opinion that Effra, Gotham and Helvetica are not my worst fonts, but merely boring due to extremely widespread adoption.

    Also, I give Arial and Verdana a bit of leeway because of its use as a web font, but using it in offline applications is not my cup of tea.

    What I do hate is when people use the same front for everything regardless of context, namely Comic Sans and Impact.
