What’s the opposite of a Crime of Passion?

I’m paraphrasing here, but Dale Carnegie once said that you should only ever give a presentation on something about which you have a passion.

That’s got to be one of the most common crimes that presenters make… giving a talk seemingly with zero enthusiasm for their subject.

Other crimes include speaking too quickly, reading to the audience and pacing around the stage.

I deliver a conference keynote talk on “The Pitfalls & Pratfalls of Presenting” and I’m giving it a reboot to include examples I might have missed. I’d like you to share what bugs YOU? So, what are the most heinous presenting crimes you have seen committed?
