This Week In Gawker Redundancies

You probably figured that we forget about redundancies this week, didn't you? Uh, yeah, we totally did! So we scrambled today to cobble together a list of people who have ticked us off in the last week-and-a-half and sent them packing. You never know when that pink slip's gonna come. (But it's usually on Wednesdays. Sorry about that.)

Made Redundant: Appletini
Crime: Thinking this is the "Sex and the City " game board.

Made Redundant: Nicoel
Crime: Lookism.

Made Redundant: Lilly
Crime: Not being as fascinated with us as we are with ourselves.

Made Redundant: IBentMyWookie-v2
Crime: Inability to read bylines, ability to enjoy "Scrubs."

Made Redundant: Astro-nom
Crime: Someone has to take the fall for all the idiots who didn't understand that Ben Greenman was joking; Astro-nom was first in line.

Redundancies are just that: An HR-approved way to get rid of you while deflecting all blame and making you feel doubly victimized. It's not you—it's just that we don't need you any more. Y'all may check the Gawker Comments FAQ. It is also true that banned commenters may return through our invitation. The best way to receive such is to send us cookies (peanut butter, please, and not personalized) or charming and juicy gossip-filled emails.
