Gawker Poll: Who Was Bringing Down Caruso's 'Men's Journal'?

Yesterday we quoted an interesting claim from Michael Caruso's wrongful-termination lawsuit against Wenner Media, that "Wenner denied Caruso the ability for about six months to fire one staff member whose removal was integral to the success of Men's Journal." Never mind how one person's presence or absence could really be integral to a magazine's success; we wanted to identify this magical individual with make-or-break power. That's where the problem started: The emails we received fingered two different people, each with equal certainty and vehemence. So we don't know which one is really the culprit.

There's wisdom in them thar crowds, though, and so we bet you'll be able to help us figure out the answer.
