I was recently interviewed by Australian journalist Jake Millar, who’s the Features Editor at GQ Australia. Jake is currently working on a piece about the popularity of graphic or violent internet content. Per his own words:
I’m not trying to make any judgements about you or the content itself – I’m simply looking to get an expert opinion on the kinds of content that attract people to your site, and the way trends have changed in recent years.
The piece is quite an impartial look at the trend towards more graphic content, what draws people to it, and why some people find it ‘addictive’.
Whether or not it’s ‘right’ to publish or watch gore is something I’m leaving the readers to make up their own minds about.
I was happy to answer questions Jake had for me, however I felt it was not my place to address questions about what draws YOU, the reader of Best Gore, to the site, what content YOU find most interesting, how often do YOU visit the site, etc.
Whereas only YOU, the S.O.B.’s can answer these questions, I decided to create this post in order to have the dedicated page on which we can have the discussion on the matter with one another. Jake will be reading this post, and YOU may end up being mentioned and quoted in Jake’s upcoming article.
Best Gore has 8 years of spotless history of protecting the users’ privacy and anonymity, so anyone willing to share their opinion without being exposed can do so by posting a comment here.
Jake would love to hear from you, and you’re welcome to remain anonymous.
NOTE: Out of respect for Jake and other BG members, comments completely unrelated to the topic of the article may be removed. If you have an off topic thing to say, start your own thread in the forums.
Thanks everyone for your emails. I have received an overwhelming response, so will aim to contact as many people as possible – sorry if I miss anyone.
