Gawker: a house divided



Pretty soon, there isn't going to be any editorial department. In addition to GamerGate and the Hulk Hogan lawsuit, Mike Cernovich has put out a 5k bounty on criminal activity by Gawker employees.

Speaking professionally, I can never understand when editorial managers throw these sorts of tantrums. Most editorial teams are short sighted as shit. I'd fire all of them immediatley for this.

So much for the idea some have floated on Twitter, that Gawker's bad habits are all about "click-bait," implying that it's the profit motive that's behind it, not ideology. Sounds like the profit-seekers are trying to put on the brakes, and it's the staff that are the extremists.

Calling Gawker's writers "extremists" is a bit of an understatement..

Blogger Cail Corishev July 17, 2015 7:36 PM  

This morning I posted a tweet asking: if I'm not #GamerGate, what moderate, non-extremist groups are fighting Gawker's hate tactics, so I could join one.

After all, moderates keep telling us that our methods are too extreme -- not just that they're not nice, but that they're actually counterproductive, because we'd catch more flies with honey, that kind of thing. That we'd have more success if we were more moderate like them. So here was a clear-cut case of hate attacks coming from an organ of the left, providing moderates with an opportunity to show us how it's done. Why should #GG be involved in this particular poo-flinging match between left-wing media types, after all? The moderates are far more numerous than us, and they say their methods are better, so I figured they'd take down Gawker by lunchtime, or at least convince it to follow professional standards of behavior.

Quite a few people missed my sarcasm, so I got a bunch of honest responses, which broke down into two main types:

1) There don't seem to be any such groups, but you can protest on your own. Here's a list of email addresses to send complaints to.

2) Hi, I'm a #GGer, and we'll be glad to help you go after Gawker; we don't care whether you agree with us on anything else.

So the next time moderates tell you you're too extreme, remember that if you leave it up to them, nothing will ever get done. If any moderates are fighting against Gawker, they're doing it safely from behind #GamerGate's front lines, so their own moderate groups don't draw the SJWs' fire.

I skimmed that fired Gawker editor's life story sized post on his tumblr. He posted a bunch of BS about creative differences with his bosses and then wrote about how he was one of the guys pushing a union and I knew immediately that was the real reason.

Lefties like Denton love to brag about how socialist they are but they also love paying (H1-Bs and illegals) a pauper's wage and not living anywhere near their slaves.

you don't know anything.

everything Gawker presented as 'evidence' could have been easily faked.

even if it's true, Gawker is participating in a criminal act ( blackmail ) themselves.

i am amused about the defense people try to make for Geithner though ... "it was just consensual behavior."

no, solicitation of prostitution is a crime in both TX and IL.

the story, of itself, could have been newsworthy: a highly placed exec at a large corp paying thousands of dollars and travelling thousands of miles to procure a prostitute.

the backing "evidence" presented though, is laughable. and if you look at the vids the boytoy posted on his political views, he's whackadoodle.

he looks to have about the same integrity as the idiot who suckered Dan Rather ( an even bigger idiot ) into accusing Bush2 of draft dodging with a flagrantly forged letter.

Something smells fishy here, Dr. Your first post smelled like snark. This one smells like dodge & weave. You were called out and you shifted the goal posts, I'm guessing. I'll also note in passing the things you didn't say and the things you didn't respond to.

Absent any particularly compelling evidence, I'll generously give you the benefit of the doubt by assuming you have some small ability to use and process the English language. (That's snark, btw.)
There is a time for concision and a place for exposition. If you had meant that $5k wasn't effective you would have added a couple words to that effect, rather than post an ambiguous, drive-by soundbite. After all, we already know you can pound out the verbiage as well as any online, postmodernist journal-article generator. (I really tried to read your 16k-word essay a few weeks ago. Really. And your thesis too...)

I have my own PhD (in a STEM field) and I spent a lot of time with fellow students of all disciplines so your attempt to disqualify fails. A PhD should reflect the epitome of the subject. No one bad at artimatic would ever get a PhD in maths.

You are drawing on a false equivalence with a stereotype of incompetence in a sad attempt to distract from your own incompetence. The incompetent professor you envisage has lost his metaphorical competence due to old age. Clearly, you never had any.

Keep digging though, this is very informative of the gamma nature. It could even be included as a case study in someone's PhD thesis.

No. If you were honest, you would have said: 'Excuse me, that was the wrong word; I did mean "fazes"'. Instead you chose to dodge & weave. Again.
If you are interested in your alleged "myself" you might want to find out where this "myself" might have come from and why it seems to think it has a PhD in English. The deep, inner "nature of the degree" is the same as any granfalloon- a fantasy based in fraud.

Bz, wife and kids don't "know" anything of the sort. We don't know it. For all we know, the gay porn guy made it all up and faked the "evidence." It's possible that this assignation was as real as Jackie's assignation with Haven Monahan.

If it is true, there is corroborating evidence, and the wife probably knows. But it could be a pure shakedown.

My inclination is to believe that salacious charges are true . . . but the gay hooker sounds like a fruitloop.

Zippy, you're right I may have spoken too soon and, for instance, Gawker may have made the whole thing up. However, I still think it's better to investigate the smoke and see whether there's fire. (Gawker should naturally pay if they are being libellous, etc.)

I can hear them squealing from here. I would advise them to put it on the ground and scootch into a corner, because no one has their back... in a non-porker way.

At least they love what they are getting... sort of. At the very least they publicly support it, even the non-porker porker way, unless it is their ask on the line. Probably? Maybe they really did want this?

Good, first step to fixing problems is identifying the causes.

@Philip Sandifer

You deeply misunderstand the nature of the degree if you think that undermines it. It's the equivalent of the good old stereotype of the math professor who's rubbish at arithmetic.

So are you the Einstein or the Freeman Dyson of English lit ?

Hey Vox, if you want another textbook example of worthless dregs on society, take a look at this guy: https://twitter.com/agenderstar

Ignoring the textbook example taking place before us of SJW BS and gamma behavior,

So the next time moderates tell you you're too extreme, remember that if you leave it up to them, nothing will ever get done. If any moderates are fighting against Gawker, they're doing it safely from behind #GamerGate's front lines, so their own moderate groups don't draw the SJWs' fire.

It's really come down to this for me with moderates: "Look, you're not my enemy, and I don't wish you any harm. But if you are so foolish as to continue to stand between me and the enemy, you will get shot without hesitation."

Joshua,
Finally. People are starting to understand. Moderates are to be expelled from discourse or used as sandbags. They get exactly one chance to stfu and get on board or they De facto get to be used as sandbags.

You misunderstand; I just don't think $5k is going to be effective.

He has a point anyone with pics of Nick Denton snorting cocaine off a 14yo boys penis at the DNC would hold out for more than $5k.

But this isn't a line of attack that phases me. The word is "fazes", Dr. PhD of English

Perhaps some lines off attack turn him from a solid to a liquid, don't you talk about making girls wet? Set fazers to stun.

No one bad at artimatic would ever get a PhD in maths. Please report to HR for an affirmative action lesion.

Yow. Vile faceless minion is torn. It obeys the rule "don't feed trolls"...but also cannot look away as Sandifer digs deeper and deeper holes.

It is to be embarrassed.

And know this, SJW-enabler: In the end, it pains us more to say it than to do it.

Also, phased IS correct.



no, it's not. it's A proper spelling, but of the improper word for the context that Phil was trying to present.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fazed?s=t

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/phased



and as always, it's worth remembering that Leftists and SJWs always lie.

Marx adopted this slogan to describe the purpose of socialism / communism
"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need."


you note the perfect inversion of the way the real world works in that. as the real world, un-interfered with by rent seekers and parasites functions as:
"From each according to their need, to each according to their ability."


is the best hunter in the tribe not compensated for the larder he brings to the community?

is the best potter not rewarded for the beauty and strength of his wares?

is the best tanner not to be compensated for his clothing?

why, no. the 'anti-Capitalist' would render all of their production and ability subject to the tragedy of the commons and take all of their production from them.

because others 'need' it more.

this is what you get when you elevate theft to a virtue and enforce it with the bloody hand of state violence.

Also, phased IS correct.

Sorry, no: "The word phase is sometimes used incorrectly for faze; such notables as The New York Times and Mark Twain have made this error. This sometimes leads to the supposition that faze is an uneducated spelling of phase; they are distinct terms."

Anonymous RCPete July 18, 2015 5:09 PM  

For what it's worth, my 1971 vintage Webster's gives "phase" as an alternative spelling to "faze", as definition 4. That and $5.00 might buy you a burnt cup of coffee.

Anonymous Giuseppe The Kurgan July 19, 2015 5:46 AM  

Cail and Bob,
What you ex-colonists seem to forget, is that your bastardised version of the English language is not, in fact English.
Phased is the only correct way to describe a change in state, which is where the word comes from. "Fazed", on the other hand, is not even a word. Neither is color/koloh/kulah, or however else your Orcish tribes try to approximate proper English words in your primitive script.

Blogger Cail Corishev July 19, 2015 9:51 AM  

Guiseppe,

Sandifer, in the middle of one of his "my PhD is bigger than yours" preenings, made a common vocabulary mistake, so we used it to give him a figurative wedgie. Why are you spoiling the fun?

The Kurgan wouldn't do that.

Anonymous Giuseppe The Kurgan July 19, 2015 2:59 PM  

Cail,
you don't seem to know the Kurgan very well. I don't even have a degree.
Are you starting to understand the Kurgan sense of fun yet?
