Hey stupid Patch Editors, do you know why people have left your site en masse? Do you know why people mock, ridicule, and no longer comment on your pages?

Sure you do, but here's a refresher. You have ZERO local content. Most of the stories are pinned to your site by the dickheads at Patch HQ, and are useless to the local readers. Who gives a shit a obit how much to spend on babysitters, garage sales, or other BS. Most of the content comes from well outside the area and has no bearing on our towns.

You lazy editors refuse to do an ounce of local reporting on issues that matter to citizens, then you bitch about it to friends at the bar, thinking it's the readers fault? Gimme a break. Get off your couch, put down the remote and go OUT INTO THE TOWNS. MAYBE YOU WONT BE LOSING YOUR JOBS BY THE END OF THE YEAR IF YOU ACTUALLY REPORTED ON LOCAL ISSUES!!!!

It's so frigging pathetic now that you put storm warnings on the page as BREAKING news! then leave the articles pinned there for a week so you can show your AOL masters how hard you're working. You split one story into three stories. You recycle the same shit on FB, then wonder why no one gives a crap.

Either get with the times or don't bitch when your site goes dark. It's your fault, hands down.

The TP, OF, and OP Patch sites are horrible. The people responsible for this crap need to be given instructions on how to make French fries and escorted to the nearest McD. Editors are dicks who don't give a crap about the towns or the citizens, good riddence when they're canned.

Thread after thread after thread after thread about nothing.

That's Patch, alright. Anyone who defends that POS of a site is either one of the employees or their mommies. Don't complain about these threads here if you're gonna defend Patchs lack of ethics and blatant recycling of other peoples work. Not a flipping original thing on that site.

Ha. The patch people come here and complain about thread after thread bashing them? How about thread after thread about the same flipping story on patch? They recycle other peoples work, try to pass it off as their own, and then "update" the story multiple times with no relevant information. F U Patch. You lie like politicians and are the head cheese scum of the internet. Do your own work and stop stealing our work.

Amazing how these patch writers plagiarize other peoples work. They must have been taught well by the AOL shmucks on how to do it so as to avoid the lawsuits. The only thing these morons can come up with is two lines of stupidity. Then they go back in their holes and pray for some tragic accident to happen so they can milk that honey of a story for months and months.....

The dumbest person on the 8th grade yearbook staff at a 1 room rural Arkansas school is smarter than any Patch editor.

Funny how patch ignores towns with lots of minorities in them. So, include racist in your description of them. All the editors are white males, so am I lying? Hmmmm.....see for yourself.

Actually those who can't get laid go and work for Patch. They also can't write, spell, form paragraphs, or do anything original. All they can do is steal other ACTUAL reporters work and lick the boot heels of public officials in the hopes of getting some free BS propaganda to fill the spaces between flooring ads and garage sale announcements.

If it was such a great site, why did they can half the dip sticks working for them? Why are they looking to close the sites or sell them off? Probably because no one reads or likes them anymore, let alone trust the anal loving editors who are only happy when someone dies tragically around this town.

Considering there are only five or six people that comment on anything over there, and most of those pole are political dimwits, it's safe to say the site has bottomed out. I've heard the editors don't give a crap. Well, that certainly shows in the level of content.

Fire them all.

Nutless monkeys work at Patch. They will all be out in droves this week begging people to vote on Bears polls and reposting links to old stories from six months ago in an effort to save their jobs. Most of all, they will steal others works by creatively using links to other articles in an effort to pass the work off as their own.

Tools. Fire them. Close the site. It's an insult to citizens to have these people pretending to dare about our towns.

And they're so starved for headlines they have the same BEARS crapline on there twice, along with a margarita story? WTF??? Oh, I forgot. Patch is hoping you get plastered on half price drinks and cause a fatal accident so they'll have a juicy story to bleed to a few months.

If if bleeds, I leads, right Patch?

Zero local stories= zero local interest.

Site needs to go. I get more local news from the Southtown. Kadner is a class act, compared to the 4th graders at Patch.

They can't close the site. My kids Business Class uses it show how NOT to run website. Oh, and those hundreds of responses to Dennis' bears blog are awesome! Ohhhhhhhh, you mean NOONE has responded to it? Hmm, you think they'd get the picture after four games, but then again they are all devoid of intellect over there. Nutless monkeys.
