This site used to be awesome. I would visit it daily. But things took a serious turn for the worst.
Just like any site that requires moderation, the first problem lies in the fact that they hire tempermental 12 year olds to do the moderation. The children haven't even begun to understand what life out from under their mother's skirt is like. However, for any number of asinine reasons, they are allowed to moderate. They use their preteen angst to drive their decision making process. They ban for no reason, delete posts for no reason, and in general detract from the "free spirt" of a site this used to be.
I don't know who actually approves the front page portal submissions, but again, the 12 year old angst thing really shows itself there. Videos are labled funny, when they couldn't be any less. Crap that never should have showed up ends up there. Its obviously another form of abuse of illgotten power.
The final straw for me was when they started deleting "unhelpful" comments. The FIRST thing that should have been done was for all shitty movies which never should have seen the light of day to be deleted. To allow shitty movies to remain, while deleting comments that are completely inline with the shittyness of the movie is another example of the stupidity that has ruined this stupid site.
I came here before there was a portal. When the owner was some stupid kid with a bunch of club a seal flashes. I loved it. Things got better for a while when he learned how to use PHP. Things have deteriorated at a rapid pace ever since.
I ignored that stupid ass bot that tells you that some 12 year old who had a particularly bad day at school had deleted a review. So what did they do? They made it impossible to ignore the bot. Fucking idiots.
An observation: it is very likely that the pursuit of the almighty dollar lead to the current moderation situation. More still could have been done to get competent adults to do the moderation, but it is most likely that the idea of having to pay for someone to use good judgement was too costly. Obviously, a kid with no life experience is a better choice than any type of rational approach to moderation.
I went through looking at some old reviews of mine, and i wonder if it's a coincidence that any review that is negative is not considered "helpful". You fucking sheep. One line reviews that say "this is great!" is just as unhelpful as a "this stupid shit is fucking useless!". However, as you can see, no discernment is used. Fucking children (mods and users) don't realize that a "helpful" review isn't only one that says "hey this is great!".
There are two types of people on this site. Those who call things as they see it, and the faggot sheep that don't know shit for fuck. Morons.
Fuck this site.
