The Gawker Commenter Day of Rage

You know, with the redesign of any web property comes reader outrage, anger, threats of leaving and even some actual leaving. That’s normal! Sometimes it’s effective in shifting an audience, or getting a new one. Sometimes it’s good for the community to have its say, and work it out on its own. But the comments on this Gawker post are not, I don’t think, par for the course for a website after a redesign.
