Also a place for pretentious douche-bags to write crappy reviews for movies thinking their opinion matters.
Person 2: I call IMDBS. You would never have known he directed that.
However, even the best intentions could not save IMDb from the internet. It is now basically a breeding ground for trolls, pricks and lifeless douchebags who spend all day, every day fighting, bitching and annoying eachother on the message boards. It's pretty much impossible to have a decent, civilized conversation on IMDb anymore thanks to the fucktards who encompass 90% of its audience.
Other current problems with the site include:
-Films being massively downvoted by trolls and haters, meaning that most of the user-average scores on the site cannot be trusted anymore.
-An on-going witch hunt for so-called "studio plants." (people who have allegedly been paid by studios to give positive reviews to films) The problem is that because 90% of IMDb's audience is made of haters, if you even try to admit that you like a film, there's about a 50% chance you will be labeled a "studio plant." (Even if you obviously are not)
-People spending all-day, every-day asking if every male actor is gay or not on the message boards.
-Similarly, sad, lonely men pining away on just about every message board for every actress about how much they love them and want to bang them.
