    Pros: 

    All the joy of reading restaurant reviews with tons of actionable advice.

    Cons: 

    Only complaint is lack of "before" shots

    I haven't got a site big enough or brave enough to be reviewed but I''ve already learned heaps by reading the public teardowns.

    Andy Dent has used this product for one month.

Hi Everyone! It's been a while since I've posted anything new on ProductHunt, but I thought I'd share my latest creation with you all today. The idea for Brutal TearDowns began when I started giving really detailed feedback to people on Reddit on posts like this one and this one. People seemed to enjoy not just the detailed advice I was giving, but the brutally honest way in which I was delivering it, and I began to wonder if there was a business model that could be wrapped around that. After deciding on a really fun brand direction, I put together a sales page and was ready to tear down the world. But, I really struggled with how to showcase "what you get" as part of a teardown. I thought about providing example teardowns in exchange for an e-mail address, or just including lots of testimonials, but ultimately I thought it was important to really let people see what was involved. So, what I'm hunting to ProductHunt today is more of a showcase of teardowns, rather than a straight-out service-based site. I've begun with a few of the teardowns I've already publicly done, and will be adding more each week to give readers a chance to really learn from other teardowns I've done. The really brave ones can even submit their site to be featured in a teardown. Anyway, it's been fun to put together. Hope you all enjoy!

This is great - awesome branding. I've seen a growing trend on indiehackers.com of people asking for brutal feedback on their landing pages. I guess people are getting tired of polite and kind, but less actionable feedback.

@ramykhuffash Yeah that's basically where it comes from. I noticed the same trend on reddit where people kept asking for 'brutally honest' feedback. I toyed with the name for a while, because I thought some people might be put off by it (the alternative choice was "ConstructiveCritiques.com"), but in the end I decided it was just too well-aligned to what people were asking for, and it was something that gave me way too much ability to play around with.

Love this, 'radical transparency' is certainly all the rage and what @rosscurrie has built here is a brilliant angle for soliciting good old fashioned honest feedback.

I'm going to get torn to bits for this but all I see here is a guy with an opinion and an agenda. I like the brand and I can see that your writing is intentionally humorous, but other than that... I don't think your own site is all that and a bag of chips. I'd much rather rather see people make changes to their site based on validated metrics and running experiments as opposed the opinion of one person; no matter who that person may be.
