It used to be a fun and interesting place where some of the most hilariously bad rejected reviews were posted, but a few months ago everyone on the staff just stopped posting them. As a result it was eventually auto-locked.

Since I have a hard time believing that idiots just stopped trying altogether, is there any reason why you guys stopped posting the failures?

The thread: http://www.metal-archives.com/board/vie ... hp?t=14619
Edit: fixed wrong link

Well, you're right in that occasional submissions of very poor quality are always going to be around. I reckon the thread's eventual fate was simply the result of there not being anything that seemed worth posting to the few mods that used it--not because there weren't still poor submissions, but because by this point in the forum's/thread's history, examples of practically all of the typical dross has been posted many times before. Other mods never used the thread much or at all to begin with, judging it to generally be untowardly mean-spirited in intent (and I suppose it was somewhat out of keeping with the sort of atmosphere we've got going now, now that I think about it). The result was a more or less natural thread death.

To add onto Gaunt's reply, I found that there hadn't been much, if any, reviews lately that seemed right for that thread. That thread's whole purpose was focused on a very thin sliver of reviews that are submitted. What was highlighted in that thread was a rare example among reviews... not the norm of rejected reviews.
