As the end of the week in this concrete jungle comes to a close, we are pleased to share with you yet another batch of hateful emails detailing all our many failings. And you guys, things got weird this week. We learned that Max Read practices the Five Knuckle Shuffle in the office bathroom, that one man's wife treats him like a criminal and that is fine by him, and that another reader demands to speak with George Orwell. Immediately!
Our Constitutional Right to Feel
Your Ignorance is overwhelming ! How is a U.S. Senator a "Threat" ? It means if Rand tried to leave without TSA permission he would have been arrested.
This is an Un-Constitutional Act by a Govt. Agency and it is illegal, it is the difference between Freedom and Fascism.
You should stop using your "feelings" to make decisions and judgements and try using common sense and understanding!
The Ol' Ball and Chain
I am confused about your position on the TSA. Rand Paul didn't want a pat down and asked to go though the screener again. I didn't refuse to be screened again, jus not be touched. I feel the same way. I hate when people other than my wife try and treat me like I'm a criminal when no justification. So are you saying it is ok for the TSA to put their hands on me because it is there "policy", which hasn't been shown to work. If you are saying this then I assume that you feel the TSA will keep us safe from terrorists with box cutters. Thanks for your response.
The Wrath of the Banned Commenter
I'd appeal to your sense of reason if you had any. Someone in your position who decides to write an article on how to do something without researching the potential risks or noting them in the article is simply an imbecile who doesn't deserve a kind, well written and thought out response void of insults.
A friend of mine had a stroke doing the shit you described in your article. It's highly irresponsible for anybody who's in the business of reporting to behave in the manor you did.
It's not like the site shows the same courtesy to people and refrains from using vitriol to get its point across so for you to ban me for using the word "bitch" shows how much of an ignorant child you are and that you're nothing but a hypocrite.
A Message Within a Riddle?
I love your home movies of a person who chooses not to be degraded, and therefore may not pass. And what should be filled in the balloon over your photo. Imagine that.
Nawt the New Yawker
You're making a fundamental miscalculation, turning Gawker into some kind of insight-magazine for the web. WE READ THIS AT WORK. IN BETWEEN OUR BOSSES LOOKING OVER OUR SHOULDER. Your readers want funny, snarky news aggregate posts (loaded with !EXCLAMATION POINTS!) that they can consume in sub one-minute bursts. SUB ONE MINUTE. They're fantastic writers, but even the best writers in the world can't write against concept; Gawker is NOT the New Yawker.
Birds Say the Darndest Things
A canary told me Mr. Read jerks off in the men's room on the 4th floor during the night shift. I wonder if he wouldn't mind reading about himself on Gawker?
A Message From a Peer
you guys really dumbed down the site, i'm not reading nearly as much. Sucks cuz i used to really like it!
Also, as a homosexual, i hate brian moylan. as a professional editor, i hate brian moylan.
The More You Know
THIS IS IN RESPONCE TO YOU ARTICLE ABOUT THE "COW STEALING FAMILY" DID THIS ALLEGED CRIME WARRANT A RESPONSE FROM THE LOCAL AIR FORCE RECON WING? WHAT? TOO MUCH FOR ANDY AND BARNEY DOWN AT YOUR LOCAL PD TO HANDLE? NO! THEY MUST HAVE BEEN BUSY SHAKING DOWN THE THROUGH TRAFFIC ON THE INTERSTATE. WHY DIDNT YOUR RAG ARTICLE FOCUS ON POSSIE COMITATUS BEING VIOLATED OR HOW MUCH IN TAX PAYER DOLLARS WHERE WAISTED GATHERING EVIDENCE IN A COW THIEF "ALLEGED"! WHERE IN A DEPRESSION, GEORGE ORWELL WHERE ARE YOU WHEN WE NEED YOU.
