"grim reapah!" burbbhrbhbbhbburbbb never fails to brighten my day

Mistah FAAB (sarahell), Friday, 20 February 2015 21:38 (four years ago) link

pretty cool to have a site mod willing to go that extra mile and call users out not just on their ilx behavior but also on how well they're doing their actual jobs

iatee, Friday, 20 February 2015 21:59 (four years ago) link

jjjusten is cooler than anyone who works for gawker

Mistah FAAB (sarahell), Friday, 20 February 2015 22:06 (four years ago) link

it's a real violation of privacy for mods to be digging around our personal websites

ew gawker's pervasive grossness makes their regular bursts of sanctimony feel particularly disingenuous

Mordy, Friday, 20 February 2015 22:17 (four years ago) link

Not all hashtags are cool with Gawker. The media company wants a single general tweet about the lawsuit and if a hashtag is to be used, Gawker wants it to be #gawkerinternlawsuit. As for the no-go's, Gawker's lawyer Mark Batten writes, "The hashtags #fairpay and #livingwage are inflammatory, and the Court’s approval of those would suggest that the Court has a view about the merits of this lawsuit. And the use of #nickdenton is also inappropriate; Mr. Denton is not identified with this case, and his personal conduct is not at issue in the matter."

woooowwwwwwwwww

Gawker wants the plaintiffs to be careful on Reddit, not connecting this lawsuit with "unrelated controversies and political causes." Denton's company gives some examples. The plaintiffs shouldn't attempt to leverage the GamerGate controversy by posting in the subreddit "KotakuInAction," which Gawker says has expanded into general criticism of its gaming site. "Plaintiffs apparently would like notice of the lawsuit to be added to this 'munitions pile,' but there is no justification for doing so," states Gawker's letter. "The same is true of Plaintiffs’ request to post information about this lawsuit in the 'OccupyWallStreet,' 'LostGeneration,' and 'Progressive' subreddits."

Mordy, Friday, 20 February 2015 22:20 (four years ago) link

tbf I understand them asking plaintiffs not to further sic the dogs of gamergate on them

mh, Friday, 20 February 2015 22:21 (four years ago) link

or the dogs of the 'progressive' subreddit?

Mordy, Friday, 20 February 2015 22:22 (four years ago) link

xps to mordy's sanctimony comment: exactly, they produce good work sometimes, but the idea that they are arbiters of ethics/morality/etc. is hysterical. (the same is true of denton's sworn enemy vice, this isn't just a gawker problem)

tbh if they were honest they'd just bring back shit like gawker stalker and own the sleaze but that'll prob never happen

slothroprhymes, Friday, 20 February 2015 22:23 (four years ago) link

tbf to vice they are pretty nihilistic (i feel defensive for them bc a lot of their foreign coverage has been really engaging over the last couple years)

Mordy, Friday, 20 February 2015 22:25 (four years ago) link

we get the media outlets we deserve, unfortunately

mh, Friday, 20 February 2015 22:27 (four years ago) link

xp the vice HBO series is great - the chiraq and north korea episodes from season 1 stand out in particular

slothroprhymes, Friday, 20 February 2015 22:28 (four years ago) link

gawker manages to be awfully sleazy without gawker stalker

max, Friday, 20 February 2015 22:32 (four years ago) link

i don't really get the complaint of being "sanctimonious." should journalists not call out people on sleazy shit if their employers do the same shit? i weakly prefer the sanctimoniousness of gawker to the seedy relativism of vice

flopson, Friday, 20 February 2015 22:50 (four years ago) link

idk i don't feel like journalism should be about call-outs, that's more like arnold diaz "shame shame shame" journalism.

Mordy, Friday, 20 February 2015 22:51 (four years ago) link

theres also the question of the extent to which journalists or commentators shd be held accountable for the corporate sins of their employers........

max, Friday, 20 February 2015 22:59 (four years ago) link

obv if someone is doing exemplary work, even for an otherwise odious media org, i'll read + appreciate them

Mordy, Friday, 20 February 2015 23:00 (four years ago) link

generous of you

xp Thanks, crunch. This feels really weird because I'm nothing like burt_stanton these days, so I really don't know what I'm doing here now. hipsters. trust funds. druggy surrealism. my gigantic dick that breaks tables when i slap it down on them (I was actually hired for a couple of months in a recycling facility). Guess you can't outrun consequences. Whelp, looks like I'll be taking my leave then.

the intersection of sports and culture at large was 100% their brand. Deadspin didn't really care much about the actual analysis of sports, like why is this particular offensive formation suddenly very popular or how does this college prospect's game translate to the pro level. The Ringer and ESPN among others are much better at that. but every day basically there's some sports story that crosses over into larger issues of race, gender, class, etc. and that was Deadspin's bread and butter. I would've loved to see what they had to say about the response to the Myles Garrett-Mason Rudolph brawl last night, for instance.
