    Shouldn't this be in off topic?
    Also good, gawker deserves to burn.

    Should it? I figured anything gaming related went here even if it was drama like the tranny simulator thing. I'm not being sarcastic here. Gawker = Kotaku = gaming.

    If it's in the wrong place, sorry. The mods can move it though.

    Hulk Hogan's theme ironically fits this situation.

    I suppose if anyone is in the dark, dangerousanalysis made a good video to summarize the situation if anyone is confused.

    Not quite.

    Kotaku ⊆ Gawker
    and
    Kotaku ⊆ Gaming
    but
    Gawker ≠ Gaming

    None the less, I'll be interested to see what becomes of the Kotaku writers and audience from here, assuming the whole Gawker network goes under.

    I'm not saying I cracked a beer and blasted Real American when I heard the news....

    But I totally did.

    So how long before Gawker appeals against this?

    kotaku will probably be kill in a few months once they're sold off to try to make good with the loss, the managers at niche should push really heavy with advertising and site re-design to fill the vacuum and soak up their lost readers, niche can get really huge and popular while avoiding all the problems that plagued kotaku

    Hard pressed to find a clickbait rag more deserving of this.

    Apparently, Gawker can't appeal without offering the maximum Florida laws require of 50 million dollars. Their net worth is less than that...
