On the Gawker Executions

11Feb08

In which The Gay Recluse — in case you missed it — reports on today’s media frenzy.

So get this: today Gawker “executed” four of its “more-stupid-than-funny” commenters, three of whom we specifically targeted in the post we wrote yesterday about (get out your pencils and paper) Gawker’s original post about Chris Crocker. Say what you will about free speech, homophobia, conformity (or the lack thereof) or whatever else may or may not get dredged up in the mix, but Gawker’s “audition” policy for commenters makes it very clear that the site maintains a velvet rope at all times, and it was pretty fucking awesome to see them use it.
