Metacritic is an utterly putrid website that seemingly prides itself on blindly and automatically punishing It's most important aspect, the users by relentlessly banning any and all reviews who even has a slight nudge hint of a report or two against it which is very often the case for any positive or negative reviews due to some people having different thoughts or just spite against the person who originally wrote it for their opinions on an opinion-sharing website.

Don't believe me? Go ahead and check out any remotely old review-page for example, a video game and then look at the user reviews: http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/osmos/user-reviews

And see just how many of those people you can't "See more reviews from". That's a sign of their account being PERMANENTLY banned by Metacritic. No appeals about any bans, no information regarding any bans and definitely no notices. They just smack more than half of their user-base into the ground with bans while deleting thousands of reviews every day due to the flood of meritless user reports without having a single human being even look at 5% of them.

Due to this self-mutilating treatment of the users and the rampaging banning, Metacritic is today instead majorly inhabitated by bots: http://i.imgur.com/OBNNS9n.jpg

A dead giveaway to these is how they all give 9/10 or 10/10 to one and one product only to maximize the amount of effect on the total user-score rating while also having completely blank profiles with no other products reviewed ever. I even tried contacting the BBB regarding Metacritic's business practices and the only response I got from them was "If you don't like it, don't use it", making no specific notes towards anything I said be it the suppression of human rights to free speech or how they favorite some professional review websites over others.

Simply put, a very disgusting website that fails on every aspect where It set itself out to fulfill which I can only whole-heartedly recommend anyone to avoid.
