I was in the black way back in the day, but not in this most recent iteration. At first, I was annoyed, because I was used to my comments getting seen. But what I figured out was that I could have grand old greys-only conversations without a pile-on from assholes. It wasn't so bad. Generally the top comments are somewhat nonsense anyway - some dark joke or a pun, something about everyone should just abandon [insert southern state here], something racist that a bunch of people are trying to handle.
Suddenly, black again, and my comments have direct consequences, haha. I think we all know what it's like to say anything feminist on Gawker. Now, the assholes pile on ME!
