It wasn't quite the perfect heaven you seem to be envisioning.
I hope I didn't give the impression that I was envisioning that. Abuzz was no utopia! As I said, it's pretty much the organization of the categories that I miss... they were thorough enough that it actually helped filter some of the idiocy into specific places and made them easy to avoid.
Then again, at least Abuzz always had something to react to. There are days when I'd almost rather have that than, say, "Does anyone know that song from the Pepsi commerical?"
