I'm sick of seeing Angie's fat frau face in all her stupid commercials. You also have to pay to join.
The theory is that by charting members, the reviews are more trustworthy.
As the commercial says, "Companies can't pay to be on Angie's list, so you know you can trust their reviews."
Too bad companies aren't smartt enough to pay shills to write fake reviews. That would be difficult for Angie to rebut.
They do, they pay the customer Angie's fee, if they promise glowing reviews.
If Angie and Craig got married, would their kids grow up and have lists?
I'm not a cow!
Are any Dlers members?
Yup, I'm a member.
She's a right-wing cunt.
I've been a member for 5 years, and after having found the best plumber, landscaper, electrician, and handyman, I'll never hire anyone else without vetting them through The recommendations on the list. It's worth way more than the 40 dollars a year.
No, r5, I'm listless.
She continued advertising with Rush Limbaugh even after the Sandra Fluke debacle. She deserves the word 'cunt.'
You have to be a total idiot to pay for information you can get for free. Plus its fake.
My partner has his own business and we always get hit up by Angie's list. They call businesses all the time and try to get advertizing dollar in trade for what they call an "enhanced listing". It's basically a scam for the consumer.
Financially, she is broke. Yes I said broke. Her company is worth something like 100 million, but the problem is, they are 180 million in debt. All advertising. Not making enough money to equal the amount of subscribers they get for the ad dollars. The whole company might go down soon.
Now, every time I see her face I don't think successful business woman, I think THAT BITCH HAS A SPENDING PROBLEM. LOL
If your list cant stand on your own without charging fees, then its not worth paying for.
That Frau was just on TV with Morning Joe.
Someone asked how they made all there money and basically she said from subscribers and companies that pay to be feature but maintain a high rating with them.
Translation: Suckers and Businesses with enough cash.
BTW They are not doing so well. They make hundred of millions of dollars, BUT they are spending even more on advertising and are actually in debt.
The are robbing peter to pay paul on a scale of tens of millions of dollars.
I'm busy busy busy busy.
R13, David Pogue tweeted yesterday that he was in the green room with Angie and Elizabeth Dole. Liddy told Angie "I just love your commercials!"
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
