ESPN has a serious problem when it comes to pushing politics in their programming. Not only do people not want to hear it, they push political views that only the uninformed and the fringe would accept, and they try to make it seem like it's the norm. They're really looking to start a huge row with their viewers when the sports seasons resume and I just don't know why they're going to do that, especially when they know better.

Maybe it's time to get rid of the Ivy League leftists and find people who want to talk about sports, that's just a thought. It seems like a lot of their reporters are bitter about not getting a job with regular news media outlets and are using ESPN to audition for those positions. It's getting nutty now.
TMZ

All TMZ did was try to put out story after story to make the riots worse and eventually, people got tired of it and started calling out their hypocrisy. The Karen stories started getting really bad and hypocritical too. The comments were overwhelming against TMZ and their reporting and unsurprisingly, they eliminated the comments and presumably will move to a system like The Verge, Engadget, Reddit and Facebook and only only liberal points of view to be heard. It's always funny, the left always talks about "open dialogue" and "conversations", but only as long as it's about things they agree with. No surprise, nothing ever gets fixed when they're in charge.

They will now get 10 comments a story and pass it off like it's the will of the people. Not sure who they are fooling.

Yeah, Evan Perez and Jason Hoffman wrote an absurd article stating Trump's declaration that Antifa was a terrorist organization was "unconstitutional", claimed the extreme right-wing was behind some of the rioting(false). The press really needs to be cleaned up of some of the immature, juvenile staff they have. No one is fooled by them anymore. Hint, do some quick research of the writers to find out what they're really about before taking them seriously.

Who hasn't gone through this song and dance before?

You go to sell an item on ebay, and usually, it's always the popular stuff that gets the worst buyers. You get a large amount for your item and think, "Great, that's out of the way." Then the buyer, probably some 14-year-old kid or deadbeat, either refuses to pay or wants to wait until payday. So you're waiting a week or so to get payment from some dirtbag because you just don't know if he will come up with the money and you have to give them the product.

Amazon doesn't work like this. Wal-Mart doesn't work like this. Best Buy doesn't work like this. Craiglist doesn't work like this. I just can't understand how someone who bid on an item and won doesn't have the money come out of their account away. That's just ridiculous. Worse yet, they basically have no competition so they can get away with this.

I will try to sell my used stuff on Amazon from now on, to be honest.

Tried to write a review for two of their Prime Original TV shows that were negative and not only did they find an excuse not to post it, they then BANNED me from ever posting another one. So basically you can't trust the reviews on here, which is a shame. They lure you in the first season and then drastically cut the budget next season as a bait and switch. Terrible way to produce TV shows.

Of course, Amazon has to ruin everything they get their hands on. Box Office Mojo used to be a great site. I think IMDB and Amazon owned it before, but I think a few months ago, the whole site design changed for the worst. Was looking at box office information for Star Wars Rise of Skywalker and it was just unusable. All the franchise comparison information is now locked behind IMDB pro and much of what you could find on the site is probably easier to find on Google search.

Not sure why they are doing this other than out of pure greed. I used to love this site, now I don't ever go on it again. What a shame.

Exasperating to read. If you make a colloquialism that insinuates any kind of an insult towards a sexual orientation or race, they act like it was a war crime. Seinfeld pretty much complains about not being able to do college shows anymore because the students are completely indoctrinated with the "woke" nonsense and it makes it almost impossible to make anyone laugh anymore. So in the Dana Carvey episode of "Comedians in Cars Drinking Coffee", he set a trap, in my opinion, having Dana Carvey play the guitar somewhere in Hollywood at a store and makes what some would perceive to be a homophobic comment. Predictably, in their review, Eater lost their mind and jumped all over him for every instance in the season he used the term. All because it was some fun banter between him and Carvey. Then like your typical Marxists, they took offense to Lavazza and their product placement.

It's sad, this site feels like they're shaming Seinfeld but in reality, they're embarrassing themselves. Did the parents of these writers ever tell them at some point to get over themselves and quit whining like mine did? It's ridiculous.

There are much better sites out there, thankfully. Avoid this one.

I used to like coming here, even if the pro-gun nonsense was ridiculous. I could discuss things freely here that I couldn't do so on other sites. Then one day, I was banned immediately after talking to another poster that was a black conservative. As usual for these dot-coms, any request for information regarding my banning was ignored. It's just another lame high school lunch table board run by brats who ban you because you looked at them the wrong way. The internet used to be great until the punks running these boards let the power get to their heads. Even Breitbart is getting in on the ban happy game. It's a shame. The people running these boards don't realize that the more people you ban, the faster you turn your site into a graveyard when posters stop going. Same thing happened to RealGM. It makes no sense.

Am I tired of the SJW nonsense on ESPN, Deadspin, SB Nation and most major spors media? Yes, absolutely.

Barstool on the other hand is the other extreme. It's a major step backward. It's where sports reporting shouldn't go. It's trashy. Look at the front page of the website, it's a hot mess.

I'm a minority. I consider myself fairly conservative, but I don't feel welcome looking at Barstool's content. Where are the minorities on this site? I hate using this term, but the whole channel is totally "white privilege."

I just don't even know how people can find this entertaining. I am listening to the founder's story on HBO and it's very clear he came from money to be able to get all this started, and he acts like it. Worst of all, the whole enterprise is out of Boston, which is strike three from me.

If everyone could just come back to the center in sports reporting, that would be great. Just being honest.

The Verge and Engadget's corporate overlords must have reined in the political nonsense. Normally, during riots or protests like this, their entire page would be filled with articles about it. Today, I think The Verge has one story and Engadget has none, as far as I've seen. The Verge, naturally, had to editorialize their story and accuse the police of being "militarized" and "occupying America." I don't like the cops either but I'm not a baby about it and I don't use a tech blog to whine about it. I also recognize that they have a job to do and know the US can't be an anarchy like some left-wing groups childishly want it to be.

Sure enough too, they eliminated the comments even though they claim to speak for the people, whenever anyone doesn't agree with them, they don't want to let them be heard.

Please take the tech companies out of the Bay Area. I feel like this is the biggest problem with them.

So after the New Zealand shooting, Reddit, like the rest of Big Tech, has decided what we can see and what we can't see. I guess yesterday, all the gore and death subreddits went bye-bye. This site is so afraid of its own shadow, it isn't funny. Sad to see it sink into oblivion. I've been banned by this site and pretty much, if you go against the hive mind, you are getting banned. It's pathetic. There's no point even commenting on here, most of the posters are being paid by companies or are ignorant teenagers. They're not fooling anyone.

It was a great site while it lasted. Unfortunately, the white supremacist nonsense started getting really overbearing. It doesn't help that most are pro-gun nuts too. I'm fine with them expressing their second amendment beliefs but after the umpteenth ignorant post about keeping Europe and America "pure", bashing interracial marriage and advocating violence, I had enough and left. Most of the posters seemed like they were teenagers getting their angst out.

They have a hard time getting funding, and in spite of my best efforts to encourage users to curb their bad behavior to get the site taken more seriously, I failed. Not much else I can do. I would not be shocked to see it disappear one day. It's time for it to go.

Anyone normal who has socialized properly growing up knows that when you call someone a "Nazi", it means they are basically an uptight jerk. I used this a couple times in a review of mine along with calling the business a concentration camp, which it was. Four years after the fact, Yelp deleted this review, claiming it was culturally insensitive.

I deleted my account. This was such an affront to everything I believe in. It was not racist or bigoted in any way. Their reasons to delete the review were such a stretch, I could not feel compelled to do anything with that site anymore. It was just pure stupidity. I will not encourage this wave of PC nonsense that is going on anymore. It's a cult. It's only going to get worse if people do not stand up to it. Wow.

UPDATE: Shocker of shockers, Deadspin's owners issued an ultimatum that their writers stick to sports and they all quit and whined to the media. Gotta be honest, it's all for the best. The site was just out of control and lost its way. Will be happy to see it restarted by people who actually care about sports.

Used to be a decent sports site, but their anti-conservative, race-baiting articles have gotten out of control. It's ruining the site. Several of the articles seem to be really vindictive and personal, like someone conservative insulted their mother. It's just ridiculous.

Every article now displays a vendetta against men, Republicans and Trump. It's just obnoxious now, incredibly unreadable. This was a site started around reviewing tech products and news, now it seems like it's Jezebel. Stop, for the love of God! Get back to basics, there are many other tech sites who don't resort to this nonsense.

Just another site where mods immediately ban you for disagreeing with them. Don't waste your time here. It's a great site to get information on upcoming blu-rays, UHD info, screenshots, but the people who run the site act like tyrants. I don't know, maybe they don't interact with people much at all. I just thought it was bizarre to get a six-month suspension for telling the writer that I didn't like his taste in movies. After the six-month ban was up, I cussed the guy out who banned me originally and just told him to ban me outright. This is no way to run a business. It's straight up bullying by a coward. I refuse to put up with it.

Sadly, it seems like a lot of the movie sites have problematic people running them. A competitor of theirs must have known me from another site and banned me immediately without just cause. It's really sad that some people were never taught that everyone doesn't agree with each other by their parents. I'm serious, there are people like that who think, for example, they are the good guys and everyone who isn't votes Republican. Or vice versa. It's crazy.

I literally made some comments about 4k blurays I wanted to see and they banned me without warning. I think it's sad that people get bullied in real life and have to take it out on their users because they are powerless and can't have a simple conversation. I can't recommend this site. Running your boards like some tyrant is not good for business.
4/27/18
There's a reason no one disagrees with other people on RealGM, SB Nation and other sites. The teams are running them, not ordinary people. RealGM instabans you for disagreeing with the party line on the boards. You will argue with another person and sock accounts, and if you fight too much, you will be banned. It's a sorry website full of little teenage bullies intolerant of other people's opinions. I went back some months after I was banned and found a pretty prolific poster himself had been banned. I really wish these sites were more tolerant of different opinions, there really is something wrong with the internet that needs to be addressed.

Just look at the front page, the sort of content probably won't change even as time goes on. This site was decent before but lately has gone down a lot. The stories are really immature. Lately, they've been on a crusade to shame its readers into supporting women's sports. It's like, ok, I admire the effort, but you're just being extra now. It's really up to the leagues in women's sports to attract viewers and many of them are just doing a terrible job of it now. Forcing stories onto the front page, feigning excitement, is phony and try-hard.

Many of the other stories are just pretty juvenile. I can't even go into detail. I feel like I'm reading some site for kids. It's a sad day when boards are a better source of information for sports than a website.

Even the FCC Chairman called them out for their abysmal bias. Starting to become unusable like reddit and Facebook. I will just move to other sites that don't engage in censorship and let them die on the vine.
