Earlier today, BigMex, one of the more consistent and qualitative bloggers from 1up, left the site (as of right now it’s indefinite). He also left a pretty trenchant criticism in his wake and it’s worth reading for anyone that frequents the site. Whether it simply pisses people off or garners their attention will have to wait to be seen.
BigMex was one of the handful of bloggers who turned the community side of the site into what made it so engrossing in the first place. Hopefully people won’t just skim it for the controversy.
