Allrecipes: Love it or hate it?

Just wondering what everyone's opinion on allrecipes.com is. I sense some AR hatred (or at least dislike) sometimes from the food community.

Yeah, there are a lot of not-so-stellar recipes on the site. But most of them have ratings that tell you so right off the bat.

And yeah, a lot of the recipes used canned soups, bottled dressings, etc.

But overall, I feel like the size of the site is helpful...if I need a starting point for a recipe, I can usually find one and read some reviews to help me tweak it further.

Thoughts?
