About a year ago, one of the Jalopnik authors posted an article about an insanely unsafe series of actions performed in traffic, and basically glorified the act until myself and many other commented about it. The article was later adjusted to not blatantly glorify driving like a fucking idiot on public roads, but the damage was apparently done. I had been able to post for quite some time, but after posting that comment directly calling out the author, I was put back in the grays.
These days, no matter who I ask on any number of articles, I’m still stuck permanently in the grays. I guess don’t criticize the authors on Jalopnik lest ye be silenced.
