You really don't want to try and defend the stuff this guy was doing. Any reasonable human SHOULD think it's disgusting.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Kitty Talk

hate the gawker sites. it's ridiculous linkbaiting/traffic whoring, just for a slightly more intelligent audience than huffpo or whatever. rip other outlets for being sanctimonious and shallow when it's convenient, be sanctimonious and shallow themselves when it's convenient. bothers me because a) deadspin, at least, used to be something better b) their constant criticism of other media outlets establishes standards that they themselves don't meet.

i mean, both sites are still good at what they aim to do - i still visit deadspin probably twice a week and i can't go to gawker without opening like 10 tabs of articles that at least seem interesting - just wish they had, like, any scruples whatsoever. jezebel is obviously jezebel, nothing more needs to be said there.

absolutely. that's not 'privacy' - i can take a photo of someone walking down the street, but sharing it on a website where anyone can see it i think is a violation of that person's privacy.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Kitty Talk

what if someone is in a picture you took and put on your personal online photo blog instead of uploading to reddit? same violation? are you only judging based on intent?

If someone else happens to be in it, I think that's fine. I'm judging on intent, yeah - if the picture is just of someone walking down the street, and is clearly not of something else, it shouldn't be shared. And I'm not distinguishing between one's photo blog and reddit - so long as it's readily accessible to anyone who stumbles on it, it's one and the same imo.

True, and so would tv news - I doubt they get the consent of the grossly obese when they go out searching for gut shots to film.

They tastefully crop out the faces of the obese so all you see is the guts and asses, they got it covered

I agree wholeheartedly with all of this except for the part about actually visiting the sites. The whole gawker family is legitimately ****ing terrible and gets me madder than just about anything else on the internet.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Kitty Talk

I'm not super wild about Gawker. Some of Deadspin is good, and about 80% of what Lindy West does for Jezebell is tolerable to good. I do think talking about it like it's a big monolithic thing with one editorial policy or approach is wrong. They employ a lot of crap authors, but some are pretty damn awesome.

I must be so bad at the internet. Never been to Reddit.. never heard of Gawker or Jezebell.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Kitty Talk

Problem is Jalopnik isn't bad, especially Alex Lloyd's essays on how to be a faster driver (race driver).

Also, trolling the Jezzies is amazing.

EDIT: Forgot about the Russian dashcam videos. Those are incredible.

The author of the Gawker reddit piece isn't necessarily hypocritical. I think it's unfair to project institutional problems on an individual writer.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Kitty Talk

The much, to me, more meaningful part of Gawker v reddit has be reddit's response in blocking links to Gawker and banning people posting said links and generally doing a bunch of things that are much more legitimately hypocritical than anything Gawker did.

That's fair I guess, I've just run across enough garbage that's turned me against the sites absolutely

And trolling jezzies seems like it would be so easy that it wouldn't even be satisfying

Given that this is sports- if you just replaced Deadspin with sbnation.com in your daily reading, you'd be doing pretty good. SB Nation/Verge/Vox Media is just killing it left and right.

Verge is the best tech news source, web or print. They are amazing.
