Attention TV.com editors,
I have been following tv.com since its inception and was even a big fan of the previous model. I used to work for a site similar to this for a couple of years from 1999-2001 and am quite familiar with how to work for a site like this. I can understand the pressures and deadline to come up with a news story or feature, but I can never understand how that pressure could affect professionalism.
I had just finished reading the story of five "jump the shark" moments. Having been formally educated in this field, I take great offense to reading something from such an uneducated writer. I was even more surprised that he started to delete comments that did not support his argument. If you have cached files of this board, please look into them to see what Seth originally replied to those that disagreed with him. Such vulgar language should not be used in the workplace nor on a public board.
If you are paying him, please stop. His work does nothing to contribute to TV.com outside of angering your already existing members. He does not draw in a crowd and only brings mildly interesting quips amongst a sea of insults. If you are paying him, I will be happy to take his place for half the pay. I am sure the site could benefit from a more experienced writer and one that is just as plugged in to the industry.
Here is a link to the original post of "jump the shark" moments:
