Affiliated or not I've never been a fan of people just gangbang shit talking on another site due to who works there or whatever. If you don't like the content, that's one thing, complaining about mods and/or admins and/or people over there in general doesn't fly with us.
In our defense, a good chunk of us complaining about this Wibbers know him from ScrewAttack. Oh the stories we could tell....
That's my only real issue with the site though. I like the content just fine (mostly), but I don't see the point of the site since the best content producers were posting the same stuff at TGWTG. It should be about the community, and that's where the snag is. Joe just isn't good at running a site with focus on community, basic stuff like forum set up is a mess and he's shown that he doesn't know how to pick mods. Picking a mod for post count is a terrible idea, while most the threads get buried due to poor organization.
The only time I actually go there now is when I watch a video there that was linked at TGWTG.
