Browsing around into reviews I found this "excellent" opinion.

Quote:
It's sad to see Unique Leader, a label that once made the (futile but admirable) attempt to stem the flow of mediocrity and complacency in death metal is now in the business of selling fashionable media products in (allegedly) "death metal" clothes to pander to the lifestyle demands of the modern "emo/wigger" hybrid's compulsive need for hoarding vapid nonsense to "be hip". When an album's marketing campaign includes the words "hyped" and "dropped", it's usually a bad sign. Considering the bass player was in a band that had Deafheaven members, I knew this would be bad (the "blast beats over shoegaze" parts of Deafheaven can be found here). Indeed, this is the continuation of the Deliverance style rape of underground metal by wiggers/emos.


?????

Honestly, the amount of degenrate reviews which include terms like "emo" and "wiggers" is alarming high, I honestly think Metallum should have a more severe way of moderating reviews, because it's really hard to think this page has credibility with such awful attemps of opinons, If you have enoguh patiente to read the whole review here's the link

, for some reason he ended mentioning skrillex and halo 4, YES, HALO 4 IN A METAL REVIEW.

I wish this was an exception, but in my experience I've found that 1 in 4 of the reviews are this utterly appaling. This time the guy look like he was either trolling or not even trying, I could post more stuff like this, but heck, I'm frustated enough just at reading that one, wiggers destroying the metal scene? C'mon.


Update: I checked some of the previous thread and found that some other users have noticed this user's attempt of trolling and the mods justified the inclusion of his reviews because "it followed the guidelines"

I think the guidelines of this site are like a law that would consider rape and murder as minor crimes and parking tickets as death penalty worhty, you can ignore this criticism and close this thread claiming "guidelines" or you can at least try to consider making small talk about the elephant in the room, I honestly doubt you'll take action, but if you cared at least a little about quality, you would take a second of your lifes to consider what I and other users are pointing out.

Yeah, I think the same way as you do, and his reviews are really annoying and written for the sole purpose of trolling. But the mods have stated countless times that as long as his reviews follow the guidelines they're going to be accepted. I don't like it either to have him around here dropping albums scores just because they're post-1993 or whatever, but anyway, just don't mind him.

That's what I'm pointing out, if a set of guidelines cannot fully prevent obvious trolls, then said guidelines doesn't work, simply as that, if you are going to maintain them because whatever reason, you must allow moderators to have more powe at judging reviews than said guidelines.

I'm just amazed you can't see the 5 billion other fucking threads we've had about bitterman. Like do you have tunnel vision and just can't see that everyone has already said the exact same things you're saying?

Yet the guidelines are still working, I don't get the point of stopping complainning if the authorities don't take action. But hell, If I'm annoying you I think I shall stop and left things like they are, not working. You preffer commodity over having a functional metal webpage?
