I came to this site in the middle of last year, thinking I would look around and comment for a while and get some idea of what kind of articles might get a good number of readers when posted here. I’m still not convinced it is the right place for someone who likes to be contoversial.
At first there seemed to be a balance of content but posts that did not conform to a certain agenda attracted a lot of hostile comments and relitavely few readers.
Since then I have seen the balance of content shift so that now the site appears to be dominated by self obsessed, self pitying or self indulgent writing, a fair few fantasists, a lot of self styles ‘self help’ gurus and people who are simply reproducing the noise bouncing around the liberal / progressive / LGBT / Hillary — worshipping echo chamber.
There are still some good writers here but if the site is censoring opinions that don’t sit comfortably alongside the prejudices of the owners I can’t see those contributors staying for long. We may as well look to mainstream media for our reading material.
