There’s a lot of angry people in this world. Actually it’s probably fairer to say there’s a lot of angry people on the Internet. As our lives get more stressful and hard to deal with, we seem to revert to a kind of primordial scream of rage and frustration, and nowhere more than on those websites which channel our discontent. We’ve all seen the suck sites, and now there’s a home for them all, a kind of howl portal if you like.
Web Gripe Sites dot com is a portal filled with angry websites dedicated to blasting a particular brand or organisation for some offence or another. That it exists is a shame really, because each site is clearly a failure of communication, and you can’t help feeling that if the target companies would sit down with the people and engage a little better, everything would sort itself out. Is that naive?
Anyway, if you feel like getting thoroughly depressed one morning, bookmark this destination and spend some time browsing the place. It’s a classic example of ‘free speech’ in all its raw, unexpurgated form. There’s even advice on setting up your own site and what you’ll need to know legally and otherwise. Amazing.
