Hey Oppo,

How’s your week going? Mine’s surprisingly chill, if you can believe it.

Let’s get down to brass tacks. Many of you have commented or emailed me to ask what will happen to Kinja user blogs like OppositeLock after Gawker Media is sold to a new parent company as part of the bankruptcy proceedings next week.

The answer is, unfortunately, that I do not know. What I can tell you is that I have not heard any discussions about that topic on any level.

I’m sorry I don’t have more information than that. But in the spirit of honesty and transparency, I thought I’d try and let you know what was going on.

What I can say is my first priorities are, of course, the welfare of my staff and preserving the work we do every day. When it comes to Oppo, I cannot promise anything—but I can say I would oppose any bad ideas about potentially changing the reader-run blogs.


In other words, I’m on your side. Even when it’s nonsensical, even when it drives me nuts, even when great effort is expended telling us how terrible we are, I still see value in this community of enthusiasts.

If you have questions please leave them in the comments and I will answer them as best I can. Thank you for your time.
