People Named Kim And Paul Are The Most Likely To Complain Online
Travel hasn't been the same since review websites started popping up.
Pretty much every restaurant, attraction, lookout, road trip and street has been listed on places like Tripadvisor and it gives tourists a brilliant insight into what they should and shouldn't do.
People aren't afraid to flex their fingers and write a bad review if their time at a particular place wasn't up to their standard. These people's complaints range from understandable to petty and the biggest offenders have been unveiled.
UK comparison site Uswitch has done the back breaking work of sorting through Tripadvisor's comments section and tallied up the names of people who like to complain.
Interestingly, Kim and Paul are the female and male names that top the list.
Uswitch focused primarily on some of the world's biggest tourist attractions, rather than a specific restaurant or back alley place.
Interestingly, Paris' Eiffel Tower is the most complained about famous landmark on Tripadvisor, attracting 17,000 negative reviews. Apparently, that's the equivalent of 402 hours' worth of time typing up an angry response to seeing the beautiful attracting.

That was followed by Rome's Colosseum, London's Big Ben, Egypt's Pyramids of Giza and New York's Statue of Liberty. The Sydney Opera house also nabbed a mention on the list and is the seventh most complained about location.
But Kim and Paul aren't the only names to be featured in the list.
For women, Karen came in second, then Susan, Sue, Sarah, Julie, Emily, Claudia, Anna and Rachel. For blokes, David nabbed silver, followed by John, Mark, Andrew, Steve, Michael, Peter, Jeff and Daniel.
Uswitch revealed how they managed to come up with their devilish list when writing about their methodology for the study.
"To find out the names of the most common complainer, first, we gathered a list of the world's biggest tourist attractions, using their Trip Advisor pages to filter for 'poor' and 'terrible' reviews," the company wrote. "We then collected the names of the people who wrote these reviews for the first 50 pages, focusing on those who wrote their reviews in English.
"In order to find out how much time was spent negatively reviewing the attractions we found out the average word count of the poor and terrible attraction reviews and divided this by the average number of words typed per minute."
