Do any of you hang out at Talk CSI
over at CSI Files
? And if you do, has that forum always been so full of people who are so very... rabid in their opinions? Or is that only the NY forum?
I read Talk CSI for it's news and spoilers, but in the two years of being a member of the forum I've found that the conversations in the forums are on the far side of scary. You can't read two posts without running into hostile opinions or diatribes about the characters and the actors. I've been fortunate that whenever I've posted something I've just been ignored because I've noticed that lately disagreeing with the majority opinion means that you become the snark of the day. And are the reviews for CSI:LV and CSI:Miami accurate? I always used to rely on the summary/reviews from there to fill is some of the episodes I've missed. Lately (well, since I've been able to see some of the episodes) I've noticed that the reviewer often gets things wrong -- mis-attributed quotes, actions out of sequence, missed plot points.
I realize that online material is only as good as the people who post to it, and that forums are often defined by the lowest common denominator. I know that I generally just lurk at forums and I don't really have an interest in the LV or Miami forums, but is it the same over with them or is NY just blessed to be populated by high-school mentality cliques?
