    Default Gawker issues

    Is this the right place for this thread? (Help, mods? Thanks!)

    Uh, I've been a Gawker commenter for about a year. I was kicked off and then let back on, and then kicked off. I was accepted under a second username and evidently funny enough to be there, but I keep thinking....Why am I doing this to myself? Part of the reason I got kicked off is that I sometimes forget I'm there and not here. And another is...it's so randomly arbitrary and arbitrarily random, the executions. What's acceptable one day is unacceptable the next, and the favoritism is out of control. Does anyone else read it? I feel like they're watching me now, reading this board, and they know who I am! GAWKER IS MAKING ME PARANOID.

    ^It's a NY Media Blog--they cover a lot of very hoity-toity things, and there's a lot of inside scoop about things that only fancy people seem to know about. I know a lot of stuff from my days in NYC and publishing and media, but I feel really....too much pressure to be funny, which makes me be unfunny, and they will suddenly "execute" you if you're not witty enough or you don't meet their standards. I like it better over here, I think.

    I read Gawker regularly because I hail from that area but always thought it was too much bother to qualify for comment writing privileges.

    I can't seem to get my funny on over there, I'm too paranoid.
