GAWKER LOSES "IGNORASSHOLE"

Started: Nov 21 2007, 01:58 PM by *what’s anorexia?* • Closed: February 17, 2010 12:10PM • Archived at 44,539 Views

 

PRIMARY SUBJECT : Former gawker.com blogger Joshua David Stein aka "the ignorasshole"

ADJUNCT SUBJECTS : Former gawker.com blogger Emily Gould. Gawker owner/publisher Nick Denton. Former NY Post journalist and gawker.com blogger Ian Spiegelman. Former Gawker managing editor Gabriel Snyder. Former Grubstreet blogger Josh Ozersky. Brian Grazer.

GIST OF TOPIC : Joshua David Stein is an ignorant asshole. Also, a hypocrite. And apparently, a bit of a horntoad who slept with his co-worker. Lots of links and quotes and whatnot provided. Some jabs at gawker.com too, because "they suck" in general.
And then everyone at Gawker who was ever a jerkface suddenly quits or gets fired. Riveting.

SIGNIFICANCE: Abbe Diaz and Joshua David Stein have serious beef from way back (Sept 2007). The guy is a tool; this thread pretty much proves it.
Also, *abbe* randomly drops a comment in a Gawker item, and houses owner Nick Denton’s ass. Fun times.
Gawker bans Abbe Diaz from commenting at Gawker [weak sauce!] because they’re immensely intimidated by her. Twice.

RATING: ★★★★

    yea how come we didn’t have those emoticons before?

    the forum was cool but this *is* better. all the best posters are here or on facebook now anyway. the forum got confusing bc you got lost where you left off if you didn’t check everyday. it’s also better for you abbe. from a marketing standpoint it’s much more organized.

    the emoticons are cute tho. too bad we don’t have them here.

    Not a lot to say about myself. I work in marketing and work with cases daily. Excited to becoming an established player here and meeting some like minded folks.
