So the troops have spoken, and it seems the consensus is that we keep reading and commenting on Megan's farewell post. She is still getting paid for pageviews, so while it does in a small way help everyone, it helps Megan too which is to me worth the trade off. She does not get paid for comments, however from things I have read Mr. Denton is kind of obsessive about them. So if we can get a "Deadspin Live Blog of the BCS National Championship Game" number of comments, it will be super impressive. Go team!
For those of you who would like to go there directly instead of going to Wonkette and rooting around and increasing their pageviews, there is a direct link here. It is up to over 17,000+ views!
There has also been some concern about the appropriateness of any letters to the editors and comments on Wonkette. The way I look at it, we are all adults, we are all intelligent, and we have legitimate gripes that we need to get out there. Therefore, we should be able to express ourselves without doing anything that is going to jeaprodize Megan's future at Gawker (because, again, Megan has nothing to do with this site and what we say - we are here to support her and her future).
That being said, I am not your mother (can you imagine how stretched out my vagina would be?). Gawker sites are known for pushing the envelope and not always being nice, so if your letters are a little "colorful", well, it certainly is language that they understand. I certainly like to throw out something completely inappropriate from time to time. A few of you have cc'ed me on letters to Ken and Nick, and while they are all distinctive, the creativity and logic of them have been uniformly excellent.
So with that, I bid you good night. It is off to the boyfriends. What he lacks in internet connection he makes up for with a well stocked bar, a huge HDTV on which we can watch the Australian Open, and a hot body to snuggle with on a cold night.
