Gawker Readers SmartS

We have turned off our comments today here at Gawker.com. This morning, I posted a post beseeching our readers, "Is your pet cute, and can you prove it with a picture? Answers go in the comments." Our readers caught this logical discrepancy with utmost haste.

Was this your way of torturing the crazy pet people, asking for adoption stories with pictures on the day no one can comment?

@hamiltonnolan Did you forget that comments are disabled today, or is this that Gawker sense of troll humor?

There's a reason we have a reputation for having the sharpest readers in the biz. From all of us here at Gawker, I pledge to you: we'll keep working hard each and every day, to ensure that we don't lose you to competing institutions.
