Love Amazon's deals and service, but sadly, like many dot-coms, the power is getting to their heads and they think they can tell people how to think and censor anything they don't like. My recent review for a movie was censored by a "sensitivity filter", which is absolute garbage, there was nothing about it that warranted that. I dumped Yelp because they started pulling nonsense like that and Amazon will be the next to go if they engage in corrupt practices like this.

It's long past time they hired grown-ups to run these companies and tell the kids to go outside and play. This is big money here, I don't have time to play high school lunch table politics on these sites anymore.

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.

Site is run by cowards. They push left-wing politics in your face several times a day but will not allow comments on those stories. Engadget pulls the same thing too. It really is time to get many of these tech companies and blogs out of the San Francisco area and back into the real world where the rest of their customer base is. Their arrogance defies belief, especially the rampant censorship that is going on throughout the industry.

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.

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.

Facebook used to be great. It was a better, cleaner version of Myspace. You could post pictures, express yourself, comment on news sites, and for the most part, you wouldn't be bothered. That all changed a few years ago. I started getting bans left and right, first it was 24 hours, then 3 days, 7 days, the last straw was 30 days. The founder regularly appears in the news bragging about how he will eliminate "hate speech" from the site. Unfortunately, this seems to include anyone trying to discuss realistic social issues to the point that anything involving it is immediately zapped. You can't have an argument anymore, you will be banned. It's absolutely infuriating to be treated like a child, considering there are a number of sites now who take a stance against overmoderation. Facebook just seems backwards, going after you for every little comment or argument.

My original, 13 year account with my friends was just getting bad. Friends largely just used it to brag about their lives. When Donald Trump got elected, the leftist whining on the site just got unbearable. I even had friends scolding me for my centrist, right-wing comments on stories I commented on. When I got my 30 day ban, I deleted my account. Just had enough.

I wonder how the site is really doing? They just make it impossible to use now. I think the main problem is Mark Zuckerberg and his childishness. It just disgusts me so much, I think the site is pretty close to being finished.
