I found this site occasionally useful: it was designed as a place for industry employees to vent against abusive restaurant owners and managers. But it became increasingly abused by some posters: I saw a growing number of posts by immature jerks and borderline sociopaths who used the site to slander fellow employees they didn't like.
The site added a registration requirement a few months back; contributions both useful and hateful quickly dropped to almost zero. What is needed, I'm guessing, is some vigilant moderators like Chowhound's to weed out posters who are unclear on or unwilling to adhere to the concept. But that costs money.
Does anyone know if the current hiatus is temporary, due to some revamping effort, or permanent?
