I think there’s peace in knowing your grandma is at peace, which is a form of contentment for sure. Sorry for your loss.

I like Kelly’s work as well, her interest in all things British seems so genuine and comes through in her articles. A lot of her articles do seem like a weird fit for today’s Jezebel, which is so celebrity-focused (I guess her royal coverage falls under that though). Read more

This is a really good insight—the mismatch between the age of their actual readers and the age of the “ideal reader” they appear to be reaching for. I hadn’t thought of that before but you’re right, and it accounts for a lot of the awkwardness of their posts.

I got greyed as well but since make trouble that’s fair. It’s just ... bad. And off putting in every way. At this point it would be merciful to kill it. Give the community that still exists time to make other arrangements and put her down.

They more than any other site has killed their numbers. It seems like anyone around for a year or more ends up banned or greyed, and then they are surprised when the debate threads are a ghost town. Read more

The only one there I have any respect for is Kelly Faircloth, because she at least takes pleasure in all the old-fashioned British-y things she writes about. The rest are god-awful writers, and miserable human beings. Megan Reynolds as managing editor? She should be wearing a hairnet and slinging slop in the kitchen Read more

Kill it off. Everyone there has a toxic hive mentality that alienates their readers and think commentators are trash. I’ve been greyed there and I don’t remember ever being grey/the equivalent before kinja. Every time Jez goes semi-viral it’s because of a shitty take like Traceieey’s Alanis post. Plus, their numbers Read more

I am wondering what G/O Media’s next big move is, because to my way of thinking, killing off Jezebel would be the most reasonable.

Ha ha. Saw it. Said, “nah”. Didn’t click through. But the comments on Jezebel and The Root are proof the Deadspin and Splinter evacuees are still actively lingering around the carcass of Kinja, still looking for a place to land.

Or enough to overcome the voter suppression, gerrymandering, and outright GOP/Russian cheating?

Do you think there’s any chance that he’ll be removed? Or get close enough to being removed that he’ll resign? I keep wavering between abject despair and cautiously hopeful, lol.

Oh god YES. His campaign surrogates are the worst.

Exactly. In theory, my broke ass should be all aboard with Bernie’s policies, but the people who he hires and who follow him religiously are such a turnoff. Like it’s a character question. This is a matter of judgment.

She’s playing a long con and hoping bernie squeaks out a win so she’ll get consideration after kissing his ring in 2016.

Also, Tulsi reminds me of Bad Janet on The Good Place if she decided to run for President.
