Let's say, just for the sake of argument, that for some reason, spinnerets developed in your wrists. Spiders rarely if ever fire silk at high speeds. They trail it behind them.
Let's say, for the sake of argument, that spinnerets developed in your wrists, and for some reason, the shot silk 300+ feet. Why in the name of God would they be activated by the ASL love sign? Really now.
Oh, and organic weblines? That's almost pure protein. There's a reason spiders eat their webs after a day or so. And seeing as how Ramiverse Parker didn't go back to devour the webbing he had been swinging on earlier, he must be eating UNBELIEVABLE amounts of protein off-screen. I mean, either that or he'd be severely malnourished. I want his recipe for protein shakes.
Sorry if these points have already been made. I was too lazy to go and check if somebody already said this, and just wanted to put in my two cents.
Disclaimer: I prefer mechanics to organics, BUT that doesn't mean I hate the organics.

That being said, you are right inasmuch that It's incredibly unrealistic that a human body (super powered or otherwise) could produce that much webbing without Peter consuming an outrageous amount of food. However it is equally unrealistic that a compact wrist-web shooter would be able to hold even a couple web lines in one of those little capsules, never mind enough for him to swing across the city and then do battle with.

I'm not going to say "It's a movie about a guy who WALKS ON WALLS, what did you expect?" because I hate that argument, but no matter how you look at it, the web shooters will always be nothing less than completely unrealistic. Either way, organics or mechanics, you have just suspend your disbelief and focus on the story and characters; the things that actually matter.
