If You’re Happy About Gawker Going Under, This is the Company You Keep

Gawker Media has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy today, and have entered into an asset purchase agreement with Ziff Davis. Read more about what that may mean for the future of the company here.

There has been much gloating online over the news, almost exclusively from the worst people. Seriously, catalogue a list of the most odious types you can imagine — Gamer Gate babies, MRAs, Buzzfeed dorks, Tech turds, Redditors, Beltway puds — and they’re all reveling in the news. There’s an old saying about how you can only judge someone based on the quality of their enemies. In the case of Gawker, who, yes, yes, have made some mistakes over the years, a pretty good indicator of how necessary they have actually been is their long list of pig-fucking adversaries. Most of them have made themselves known again today. Here is a small sampling below. If you’re happy about Gawker going under, this is the company you keep.
