The Consumerist is the dumping ground for every whiny bastard who deals with any corporate entity. Not being treated like a princess to some people (something small, like faxing paperwork) is enough cause to go on and create a sob story often. I don't believe anything I read there anymore.

This. That site lost credibility a very long time ago, and went even further downhill once it left the Gawker network.I like to call it whinyentitlementwhores.com. Or alternatively, bestbuykilledmyfamily.com.

I have to disagree.. they have some very good stories sometimes, and sometimes people are just whiny, BUT, the staff almost always points out that in the intro, and if not, the comments do.You're probably just one of the "Wh s ths n Cnsmrst?" guys, though :D

Yes, Atlanna1. I mean, you're paying real money to use the account yet still don't own the characters on it, why would it be any different for vanity pets?

I know what you meant, but the whole micro-economy thing starts moving things into a very grey area.

I've never been disemvoweled on there for the record, because I stopped reading it a long time before then. I got tired of digging through OH MY GOD THE FASCISTS MADE ME SHOW MY RECEIPT AT THE DOOOOR posts to find legitimate ones.

so going from Gawker media(while entertaining, most of the sites cater to mostly gossip and speculation) to being bought by Consumer Reports parent company(one of the most trusted names and goto resources for consumers in North America); How is this a bad thing exactly?

"disemvoweled"A new word, created by the typo bug, meaning to have one's words cut out of your larynx with a spoon.
