    This might not be a big deal to most here but I really liked using IMDb to talk about TV and Films due to the mere fact it united fans and casuals alike to discuss something on a website very easy to find.

    Source: IMDb

    What a bunch of B.S. that is! It's not providing a "positive, useful experience"? If they can't afford to keep the Discussion Boards active that's one thing but then blaming that the boards aren't "positive enough" is another.

    This is going to kill discussing TV/Film content for many people if not most. :(

    RIP IMDb.

    Damn, they were hilarious. Not necessarily because any of the authors in it were comedic but because of the insane drivel I saw spouted there all the time.

    Re "positive enough" then they were truly a vile place (every -ism going there usually represented fairly well), and I can well see those less inclined to laugh at everything have a problem with it.

    Guess I will have to stick to giggling at the puritans which write the parental guidance sections.

    So the higher-ups get all butthurt and decide to take the pusillanimous route. Go fig. PC losers.

    Most people only use the video game sections of GBATemp.

    And it's already gone. RIP IMDb.

    I've took a look at Previously.TV and seems OK but not great. Ads take too much space, theme is all white (preferred the classic from IMDb) and not much activity on less known shows.

    On the bright side, I grabbed the list of Brittany Murphy recommended films from an IMDb board post so at least saved something. :)
