They were fun, but that were a while ago and time has moved on.
Yup, I skimmed through a copy today and they had less original content over a month than we put on the front page every week. And Jeez, the quality of their writing sucked. I just don't know how they get away with such woeful writing.
It's not just them though KiR.
I skimmed through several expat oreintated publications at lunch the other day - 7-Days, Asia Life, this new thing called WUPP, The Advisor, the French one.
Seriously, not to blow 440s horn too much, but the front page articles are so far out in front, in terms of writing and original interesting content. Like ludicrously so.
The Advisor was the worst. I think the writer had basically done a 'best of' of the forum threads for the year, taken the best comments and pasted them in as 'original content'. Really poor.
