Do yourselves a favor and check out this post on Deadspin, where they announce that they'll be trimming the ranks of their commenters. So much on display there, from the typically flouncy behavior of the commenters as they decide to quit before they get fired, to the whole "this isn't just a web site, it's a community" line of thinking, to the kneejerk bashing of the Deadspin editors/Gawker media/etc.
The Deadspin commenters have always had an inflated vision of their own importance to the site -- an attitude that was repeatedly enabled by the site's editors. The comment threads over there have long since devolved into a swamp of weakly offensive non-sequiters. Like open mic night for nerds who always wanted to be jocks. So it's kind of funny to see everyone over there realize all at once that their awesomely hilarious Gay-Rod jokes haven't made them quite as indispensable as they thought.
