@ LilyLily - No one said the Nagger cannot also be right. But by the 5th or 6th time they've said the same damn thing they should realize the naggie ain`t listening and shut up themselves. The continued attempt at verbally flogging the dead horse they married is why Nagging is non-productive.

Not that excessive nagging is ok (it's not, you`re being stupid) it`s usually got a good reason behind it. Your partner (men nag too, SURPRISE) nagging you about something? Listen. It might be a pet peeve like leaving dirty dishes out that you can fix by something simple like, oh I don`t know, putting them the drat away. Or talking to the `nagger` about it and explaining that its not a big deal and compromise with them. EASY AS PIE.
Often a woman (or man!) trying to explain something that may be perceived as petty is brushed of as `nagging` instead of their partner sitting down, shutting up, listening and talking about it to fix it. They took the time to come to you with it, so return the favour and listen. "I`m sorry honey that this annoys you but I don`t think it`s a big deal, lets have a chat about it and sort this out" instead of "OH LOL U HAVE PROBLEM NAG NAG NAG" type responses go a looong way. Communication, it`s not hard!
