Is TweakTown Really as Bad as They Appear? Mos Def.

Like many others, I've been trying to keep up with all the recent news and product reviews. I use OC3D mainly for that, but I read other sites too. One such site is TweakTown...

...Speaking of TweakTown, I've come to the conclusion that the site is run by two spoiled pre-teens. Their parents pay for high-speed Internet and server space to allow their precious bundles of joy to post ridiculous articles so that they grow up to be well-adjusted snobs. Their articles are appalling. The content is presumptuous, indulgent, superfluous, and shallow. They make sweeping assumptions and guesses—which would be fine if they were in any way realistic or reasonable. They recently said this:

"AMD is going to dominate the GPU game in 2017 with Vega 10, and beyond, and will be priced at $800-900".

Yep. That was a serious article. It's like they live in a bubble where their mum and dad tell them that you make babies by chewing on a dummy while sitting on the bog.

Every product review I've ever read earns a 96% rating. Has anyone else noticed this?

The best way to boycott garbage websites is to not visit them. Spreading information about them, be it positive or negative, increases their traffic.

Can't say that I am on that site much..

Just going to say that the site slows my browser (Chrome) to a crawl, not sure whether it is how many ads they force on me or what, but it keeps me away.

I don't use any form of ad blocking software, but any site that slows my browser like that does not deserve my traffic.

It does that to me as well, with or without any adblocker installed.

Anything that has the initials Tt should be avoided

I stopped visiting their site quite a while ago due to how many ads they put in your way, That and the few videos I've seen of the main guy I wasn't too keen on.

Yeah it is bad. In addition I use a lot of"professional" articles from the stock market written by people with impressive resumes, yet there's a few that always post the most bullcrap I've ever seen. It's so bad and hilarious that the University or Company backing the author should lose all credibility. There's this one particular person who literally destroys AMD every possible chance, then at the end always goes on to say "I have and always will be, Nvidia biased"
Like really? Crap like that is why people hop on Nvidias bandwagon.
