Dubai is currently THE most overrated tourist destination. Shopping malls in a desert. Place without a soul or any "genius loci" whatsoever.

I don't think you're reading the posts properly. Most of us are saying it's overrated. Boring and overrated are not the same thing. I know people who actually live there and agree, there's only so much shopping you can do in a day and if you don't work...there is little to do.
I travel alot so I know how to research my trips as I'm sure others do too. Dubai is an interesting place to see or experience once but it is no London Paris Berlin Sydney Tokyo or Rome.
