It is clearly evident based on comments from TechCrunch Readers that the trolling and drama has gotten out of hand. With Michael Arrington and Paul Carr out of the picture I don’t see TechCrunch improving overtime, Sure MG Siegler is a decent writer but his limited focus when it comes to Technology is not enough to keep the New TechCrunch alive.
I wish there was a survey of TechCrunch readers as of current to find out how they feel about the future and how they feel the AOL acquisition has changed TechCrunch. I personally reduced my reading shortly after the acquisition and also reduced my comments when they moved to Facebook Comments and with the recent TechCrunch Meltdown I don’t such much reason to continue reading at all.
Maybe Arianna Huffington will come down from her ivory tower in New York and set things straight or apologize to the loyal readers (unlikely).
I guess this is the final chapter of TechCrunch as we knew it…. Thanks to Erick Schonfeld for ending it on a classy note.
