For one, it's not a music site. These aren't people who've invested themselves into expanding out their taste. They're people who are more concerned with rumors about the artists' personal lives than the music, and who probably listen exclusively to Top 40 radio. I would not give them any more weight than Yahoo or YouTube commenters.
They are people giving pointless opinions on they internet. We (AP posters) are people giving pointless opinions on the internet. In the grand scheme of things none of us matter. So, I don't see why you're on a high horse.
If you haven't noticed this site has it's bitchy moments as well.
