Teethgrinder's review of Digital Spy www.digitalspy.co.uk


“I remember when this site used to be good”

Written on: 11/08/2014 by Teethgrinder (2 reviews written)

I always remembered Digital Spy as being an OK resource for getting the gen on audio/video equipment, but after forgetting about it for years I looked in recently and oh my, time has not been kind. Now it's like an internet version of those downmarket celebrity-obsessed mags. On top of this, the forums are a joke. The music forum has an entire sub-forum for threads where nobody's allowed to say anything critical about an artist - and there was me thinking the entire point of a forum is to allow the exchange of DIFFERENT points of view. The politics forum fares slightly better in that it has two points of view on offer - the left wing one and the right wing one. Well, that is what every single discussion gets boiled down to, at which point the shills, sock puppets and partisan simpletons jump into their respective trenches and proceed to fling excrement at each other. As for general discussion, I felt my IQ points being leeched whilst I read it. Throw the overzealous moderation into the mix and all you're left with is a site that's good only for those odd occasions when you tire of things intelligent and cerebral and just feel like going to point and laugh at some monkeys instead.
