MKMOT (May 19-20, 2012)

Man, you guys are something else. Just when you start balogging up a storm, you stop again. I NEED CONSISTENCY IN MY LIFE! And my bowel movements, but that's neither here nor there.

Here's how things are going to work for the weekend. There will be ONE open thread, encompassing TWO days!1!! What a concept. Revolutionary, sensible, and potentially lasting. We'll see how it goes. Your input is welcome, 3 "Guy Who"s that still read this thing.

Weekend! It's open.


  1. Weekend threads? Can't go wrong with a sheer tunic and capris. Faboo!

  2. There's so many terrible comments these days on Deadspin, I can't even get riled up about it anymore. Yes, there are good ones, but the bad is so bad. And once the change finally happens, it's going to be open season to suck. Fuck it. I'm done with that place.

    1. Sorry, my hilarious link didn't work. Here's a new one.

    2. You're seeing what you want to see. I think the commenting is as good as it's been in over a year. Don't let that stop you from having a complete conniption fit, though.

    3. Yeah, some words on a screen = complete conniption fit. You see what you see, I see what I see. Am I not allowed to have my opinion, or is yours the correct one?

    4. I have certainly noticed that a lot of the classic posters have been MIA lately, which sucks, but there are still a decent number of guys bringing the heat.

      I'm afraid part of it is the culture engendered by DUAN. It's much easier to ingratiate oneself there. A user who comes across like an OK guy in DUAN may be awful during "regular hours" - there are several. He's therefore less likely to feel alienated, and will continue to spew dud after dud after dud. It's actually a testament to the general decency of the commentariat, that these types aren't simply encouraged to fuck off.

    6. Guy Who Is Both "Guy Who is Probably Done With Deadspin Soon" and "Guy Who Guy Who Guy"May 19, 2012 at 6:22 PM

      Yes, my opinion is the correct one.

    7. Know who else once said "This place is going to hell in a hand-basket, I'm OUTTA HERE, MAN!" and was completely wrong?

      VIRTUALLY THE ENTIRE DEADSPIN COMMENTARIAT, immediately after the redesign. Turned out things returned to normal and then some, and we wound up with the strongest group of featured commenters maybe ever.

      I wouldn't look at any recent trend in commenting as a harbinger of things to come. And a spell of bad commenting by other commenters seems like a silly reason to discontinue one's own commenting, doesn't it?

  3. Has anybody else been having frequent "Comment Save Failed" errors lately?

    About 50% of my recent comments have had this, and if I reopen Safari and resubmit what I wrote, it usually works just fine.

    Just curious if it's my computer acting up, or if it's a Deadspin issue.

    1. I had that problem three separate times today. I took it as the Internets telling me not to post said stupid comments. But I did it anyway, cause I'm a loner, Dottie, a rebel.

    From the dreams of Bacardi, back to the balog
    Snoop Baloggy Balog, funny? Meh. But just won't stop
    Tubalog's time here has passed, but it's still the same
    I flow on the balog under different names.
    Follow me, follow me, follow me, follow me, I will make this quick
    Marv Skeevay app-izz-eared so we can talk our shit.
    And you'll say, "Would ya look at that?"
    Though undercover, I've arrived with this rap attack.
    You might laugh, or do the commenter math (rat-tat-tat-tat)
    but a lawsuit would be great, cause they don't know who I am.
    Yeah, though Skeevy may manage it
    this balog is IMG's, all the praise is his.

    What's my mother fuckin name?

    Snoop Baloggy Balogggggg (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
