I recently found out that, The Lancaster (aka Kevin "Captain Obvious" Lancaster), poor baby, is butthurt about Sonikku's comments on DISQUS from last year. So early in the new year, we get WARNINGS on DISQUS before posting that "insults will not be tolerated" yada yada yada what-the-fuck ever.
Never mind that though, they went and posed the question this week as soon as some longstanding members commented on the above "new feature". The following discussion was spawned:
Do comments sections on websites add value?
Well never mind the fact that Captain Obvious started the thread (the kool-aid must be getting to the brain), the responses all say the same bleeding thing- Stop the Clickbait you moron!!!
So I monitored the thread, and this post in particular, is very succinct in that the site is fooling nobody.
(and for those not in the know, it is obvious that this poster is an executive level manager or something like that with Incredible Connection). Kind of explains why IC are not really having paid-for articles and other prolefeed being made for them.
Without further ado, read the comments of a executive in the IT electronics retail space about MyBroadband
I rarely read your articles unless there happens to be a useful link or number not listed elsewhere, resulting from rare journalism: original research. That would be maybe 1 out of 100 articles, probably written by Jan.
Usually your articles are more of a "please write 3 paragraphs of garbage that Google will latch on to so that it will index the headline and advertisers will get clicks so we can get paid".
There you have it folks... if you're still taking MyBroadband seriously at this point... boo fucking hoo to you.
