Goodreads 'good' or 'bad' for authors?

I've been a member of Goodreads for a while but lately, I am thinking of unsubscribing.  There are so many petty squabbles among the members and nastiness seems to have broken out in the ranks that it is becoming a chore to wade through the material.  Generally, I just dump the emails before reading now - the good with the bad.  What do you all think?  I don't really care about sharing my latest reading book with readers; it was more about the marketing for my own books.  I can't see that the discussions of books are in any way illuminating and am quite staggered by their sale to yet another octopus of a parent site.
