There are quite a few of us who have been here for years and have no interest in writing reviews.

Yep. Tough crowd. Nobody cares what I think and weird things like bathrooms and drinking fountains wouldn’t even factor in to my reviews of a course.

This website does course reviews? Huh.

I come for the forums; specifically talks about discs, tournaments, bags, etc. With that respect, there are plenty of none-course reviews this site is useful for.

Site must be migrating that way as udisc has taken the course review crown. Though I find udisc reviews mostly useless, the law of averages likely holds true as courses get a lot of reviews.

As to reviewing on this site, I think it’s a tougher crowd, and it has deterred me from offering up reviews. But, I also don’t like to review courses, as so many courses are constantly evolving, so reviews need time stamps, and need to be updated, in my mind. Shrugs…

I use the internet often, usually as a non contributing user.

The only thing I have less interest in, than writing reviews, is some public bashing of a guy has been nothing but helpful and nice, in the couple encounters I have had with him.

Take your personal beef to him. Or step up and develop your own site.

In before the ban and landfill.

I'd rather have fewer reviews -- but good ones. I think there's a place for this.
Agree 100%. I am much less likely to write reviews now that DGCR is blocked on my work computer. I've done some reviews on the Android app interface and it's arduous.

I also agree about fewer reviews, as long as they're rich in detail. (For courses with at least a couple reviews, that is.) The additional value added by the 15th review is slim to none, unless it gets deeper into a course characteristic that the previous 14 reviews didn't cover in much detail.

Just a corporate firewall policy update. Not a big deal, a lot of forum-type sites got added to the "hey this is probably not work related" list.

It’s “work-life balance” related. You should write a formal letter of complaint to HR.

That sums up Tim's attitude to DGCR.
Yeah! Why doesn’t he devote his entire existence to a free/voluntary pay forum???

I mean does he even think about how I feel when my 3 line course review gets down voted? What kind of monster is he?

But your company is OK with you showing up late because you had to show a couple noobs from WI around the X? Sounds like a great place to work
