This is sad news.

Sad news how? They released a sex tape that they werent supposed to. They've tried to ruin people's careers in certain fields by revealing personal information for their own gain. Good riddance to a trash website. Hopefully they'll still be able to pay The Hulkster all the money they owe him.

This. How the hell did they manage to dig up a Hulk Hogan phone call that was nearly a decade old?!

And this news should make me care why exactly?

I don't have a whole lot of love for Gawker, but dang...if this isn't a dangerous precedent.

Wow, first I learn Steve Lavgine will be doing a con in my area, then I get a commission inquiry, & now this? What a great way to start the day. :)

Sad to say we may be happy with Gawker shutting down, We all know sooner or later, other Gawker will pop up sadly.

It almost or did wreck the Hulkster.

An invasive, hypocritical, propaganda machine.

GoldMutant 08-18-2016 09:56 PM

Considering the damage these guys have done, good riddance.

I only clicked on this because I had no idea what gawker was. Looks like a whole lot of nothing. Huh. I'm gonna go get a Rice Krispies treat.

thundermaster612 08-19-2016 10:44 AM

I'm gawking at the fact that it took this long to shut it down
