A Critical Overview of The Stranger

Posted by on Wed, Jan 30, 2013 at 9:00 AM

We're observing Slog silence from now until 11 a.m. while we have an editorial meeting, but look—we made an entire paper's worth of stuff for you! Here's what Arthur McCavendish has to say.

Ah thanks for the trolling.

"The wisdom of everyman reviewers...infinately [sic] more useful..." No it is many times shit. I'm all for aggregation when it works but ask authors if they think the Amazon review system is working. Ask Jaron Lanier about it.

I enjoy the recipe and hotel/retail reviews. The recipes because many times the "review" is actually a reworking of the actual recipe, and the hotel/retail because someone is always complaining about how an employee is "rude" because they didn't give the answer the reviewer wanted to hear. Also, sometimes they inadvertently get hilariously graphic about stuff like housekeeping and food service.

Completely agree with @4. I love the complaints about service in Seattle. The people are obviously cheap, and were trying to scam. Every review on Yelp is either 1 star or 5 stars.

What is this Yelp thing you keep yammering on about?

I thought they went away last decade.

Keep bragging about that new Sodastream and the only thing that's coming to your door are irate protesters.
