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?!

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