Excuse me, spiders are not bugs, they are arachnids along with scorpions.

Spiders are bugs. If he had called them "insects", then you'd have something to point out.

From definitions I am finding, a bug is "a small insect".

Yup...spiders. Small ones I can probably deal with, but those big ones I just hate. Especially when they get in the house and on the ceiling...just, sitting there. >_>
Also hate the webs they built in the middle of the walkways, and they sometimes look like they're floating there. Seriously, I get nightmares constantly about running into thousands of webs swarming with spiders. T_T

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

If you click on any of the dictionaries on the page you linked, you'll see that I am correct. In nearly every dictionary the first definition will read "an insect or other creeping or crawling invertebrate (as a spider or centipede)" or something similar.

Stimulating argument, by the way.

I once read that you are always within eight feet of a spider.
And I read that on the Internet, so it's probably true.

Meh, the little ones are no big deal. A big one might unnerve me a little if I found it, but then I would either just leave it if it's outside or kill it with my foot or a flyswatter if it's in the house. When I was younger, I used to be scared of bees, but now I'm not. They don't mess with me as long as I don't mess with them. A handy lesson from nature, isn't it?

Now, I would not want to meet this thing in the wild.

Snakes are cool when they're in the zoo, pet store, or otherwise locked up or kept under control. They're not cool when they're in the wild or on the loose from the pet owner. A dinky garter snake isn't too bad, but anything bigger and I'd run away. You're not supposed to mess with wild snakes anyway.

I actually flat out hate most insects. Spiders, bees, hornets. You know. But most of all, butterflies. Make fun of me all you want, but if you just look at them, you'll see why I hate them. Past the wings, they are just ugly beasts to look at. My fear mostly started when I was about 10. We were at a butterfly garden at a zoo, I think the Omaha zoo (Sweet zoo, btw). Things were flying around in there, occasionally hitting my face, when about 10 butterflies landed on me and I couldn't shake them off. I freaked out and ran out the other side ("accidentally") killing those that didn't come off. I just don't understand why people like butterflies, they're like all the other creepy insects, but just with nicer wings.

I love spiders. They're so cute! I want a tarantula but they're illegal where I live.
Some spiders sit on a leaf and dangle a thread of silk down, then reel it in and eat whichever flying insects got stuck on it. How could you not love them? They go fishing!
But anyway, I'd have to say my biggest fear is brain-eating amoebas.

My point being bug is not a scientific word and, as such, does not have a concrete definition. Some interpret it strictly as insects while others define it more broadly. Not everyone considers a spider a bug. Doing a simple search on scientific sources would show you that, it's a mixed opinion. I won't post more links because my phone likes to make them overly complex, as someone seems to have noted, I'll simply allow you to search the topic more if you desire. I was just showing one example where it is definied as strictly an insect, which is what I was taught in school. There is no right or wrong here, as much as you'd like to be "right".

I agree with you about the butterfly thing. I can't tell you how many times I've heard someone say that they hate bugs but love butterflies.

This. This thing right here ruined my childhood. I actually gave away a VHS I had because it had that episode on it. Though I would be fine watching it now, because now I love arthropods for some reason.
