BANNED BY GAWKER
This was the comment that got me banned, in response to this post (scroll down to see the comment in context):
•"Who gives a flying shitass fuck at a fucking jerkass rolling fucking fuckwad donut?"•
Pretty lame, right? The admittedly ultra-childish (and super-drunken) rant came out of me because I felt this developing media "story" was of interest to exactly the half dozen people up for the job.
Gawker is fascinating to me when, often through reader tips, they present insights into this City you will never see anywhere else. Gawker is not at all fascinating to me when they present insights into the boring networking news of their friends.
It wasn't by the editors; let's just say it was a high-ranking decision. This after they've used several of my funnier posts on their site (some of the funniest stuff they've posted, in my opinion).
So, y'all can stop writing me asking for a Gawker Comment invite, obviously.
