It's a good site for keeping my list of anime.. And a review is up to the reviewer if he liked it or not. Big deal if someone post's they dislike it?

I actually like My Anime List, just because it helps organize what anime I've finished and ones that I'm currently watching, other than that though, I really don't look at the reviews or recommendations all that much

People generally talk trash on the internet no matter where you go.

The forums on any site are trash, lol.
MAL is useful for keeping track of stuff I've read and watched though, so I use it.

So it's bad because the people who do reviews don't only focus on the positives? I don't think you get how review's work, nay convincing anyone that anime is a worthwhile hobby. Saying it's rubbish because the entire community has a differing opinion from yours is some of the most awkward bollocks I've read all day. Telling people to watch everything because it's all great isn't useful in the slightest. You can still be into anime as a whole, and not like some anime. Saying certain anime have their bad points would only drive an idiot away.

I use it for its main purpose, an anime list. Thought I have a backup somewhere, but I prefer MAL as an anime list out of any site, I find it neater/nicer.

I used the forums for a bit, mostly everyone there including the mods just annoyed the hell out of me, so CR happened.

I don't like Myanimelist cause I hate you can't watch anime. I think Crunchyroll is much better

You lost me at "every anime is awesome".
If you're expecting to only hear positive reviews about series, then better stop reading them.
There are some stupid, baseless reviews on the site tho, but I've seen as many of those reviews on CR as I've seen them on MAL, so not sure what to say about that complaint either.

Only time I actually felt like hating on MAL was when the bbcode problem was on-going. Other than that, it is a great site to find basic information about different series.
As for the lists, it's indeed a pain to insert them if you've seen a lot of Anime by the time you first made the account, but after that, also a great listing site.

I use MAL only to keep track of things I watch. Never for reviews. If I want recommendations, I ask people I can trust. Or I just watch whatever.

I literally only use it for its original intended purpose. Functioning as my person list of what anime I'm watching, watched, and want to watch. That and the statistics for anime and manga popularity are the only features I care for.

Myanimelist isn't for watching anime, it's for creating a list of anime you've seen, want to see, and currently watching. Crunchyroll and myanimelist are two completely different sites.

I mainly use it for keeping track of my list of anime and manga but yes I agree with this statement.

Yeah, I understand that. I just think it's kind of annoying it's not all together on one site.

I only use MAL for keeping track of all the anime titles that I've watched. I tend not to read reviews because (and I'm not just saying this, I mean it) other people's opinions on things that I already love are irrelevant to me, whether they agree with me or not. So I have no beef with MAL or the people who post reviews there.

I used to love MAL because it was the only site I'd ever seen that is dedicated to organized lists of anime and manga x3
However, after discovering that there were actually quite a handful of sites that did the same thing, I realized it's not actually the greatest out there. Personally I prefer AniList (from the creators of AniChart, surprise surprise) mainly because of the interface, but I will still go back and use MAL to look up extra little tidbits of information.

tl;dr: MAL isn't entirely useless; in fact, it's pretty good considering they have heaps of information about practically everything anime/manga related. That being said, there are definitely superior sites imo.
