You may not realize it but some commenters in Gawker Media have a rough time with mental illness. You may or may not be sympathetic, but you will surely feel the effect if you happen on their radar during the bad times. This is not a safe space. The mods can be run ragged trying to play whack-a-troll and listen to all the whining about porn that's not taken down asap. That is, of course, unless you are willing to sit on your comments for 24 hours after posting so as to dismiss the crap. Not to mention that if someone has a lot of time on their hands and the determination, as people with untreated mental illness tend to have, targeted individuals are in for a rough time. You may think you're engaging in harmless bonding time with your fellow jezzies when you make these posts on GT, but what you're actually doing is inviting the vampire into the home.
That's the worst effect. I'm pretty sure I've been clear on how petty I think some of the other posts have been, no need to reiterate.
And I think ALL of you need to thank Slay Belle for modding these forums, especially when directly disobeying the few guidelines she has. Including me, as I'm sure she's the one who scrubbed the comment from the eight year old from my post yesterday. Thanks, Slay Belle. (Of course, feel free to delete this post if you feel I'm overstepping my bounds, I have no problem with that.)
No, y'all do not deserve puppy gifs at this time.
