Do Jalopnik staff cross-share these type of posts by choice or are they required to share these ones specifically by Gawker management?

More and more it seems like posts that are likely to antagonize Jalops get cross-shared.

I just want to know if I should be annoyed with Patrick and the gang, or commiserate with them.

Any of you Jalop overlords, feel free to chime in and set me straight!
