I finally realized what the folder is all about --
I read, yet sometimes abhor, what's on the net wrestling sites. Before you say, "Well, then, don't read it!," each site still watches wrestling no matter how bad it gets.
For instance, I read 411wrestling, and for parts of it, I like. I'm a big Eric S. fan. You might not. But at least he will criticize his own bosses (i.e. Ashish's ratings armageddon headers), and he's different to read with his take on non-wrestling topics.
I used to read PWTorch a lot, but I think it's gone way downhill IMO. I think the amount of insignificant "Torrie Wilson sneezed on a radio show" sniglets bring the site down. That's my opinion. However, I'll still read Powell's take on RAW just for a different view.
What I'm trying to get at is this:
If you're going to bash, cool. But keep in mind that there are positives for each negative. Apply that to Scott, Hyatte, etc.
Speaking of -- am I the only one that gets sick of some readers' recaps of house shows? At least edit their typos, for Pete's sake; webmasters are editors... but then again, there's that "should I be a 'wrasslin' journalist?" scruple hanging over the site, right?

That last paragraph brings up a question I have had on reader recaps.
Do the webmasters feel that they cannot alter a reader review in any way? Can't the webmaster send the reader an email telling them to clean up the review at least? I can't believe that Widro, etc. just post house show reviews with so many grammar, spelling and other writing mistakes.
I would rather not learn what happened in Fort Myers if it means trying for 30 minutes to figure out what the five-year-old recapper is talking about.

I think it's just a matter of convienence.
If you want to use 411 as an example, it's obvious that with all the work Widro and Ashish have to do every day with four different websites and a literal army of writers, I cannot imagine how they would find the time, or the patience to carefully edit and clean up house show reports. They get it, they toss it up there, and let the author handle the blame and the ball busting for the piss poor spelling.
