Thank you very much for your interest in my story about Kotaku. The criticism I received will make me a better blogger, but I thought I might as well reply to a few specific criticisms that are more popular than others.
Grammar, (IT’S – ITS, HE’s – His)
Damn, thanks a lot for pointing this stuff out, sometimes I miss this and I don’t have a proof reader, and it seems I don’t have grammar check either. I fixed those two problems, and then footnoted the update at the bottom of the post. It makes me look less professional, and I’ll try to make sure I’m better in the future, if there are anymore problems with the Grammar of the article, don’t be shy to point them out.
You’re just upset because they took away your star commenter status
It did upset me that’s for sure, but the real reason it was so shocking, was because it was over a disagreement. If I had posted racist or sexist things, or something quite offensive I should have been banned, but they took away my star commenter status so if I disagree with them in the future less people will see it. (Only Star Commenters get shown to the public).
Kotaku is just a gaming blog not a news site, and or never had any integrity to begin with.
This one I find the most troubling. Sometimes as we all know, the Gawker media blogs act as blogs and post opinion, and sometimes as journalists, and those in the comments say that they like to pick and choose, and you should just accept that fact. I disagree with this opinion respectfully, because even though I had gone to Kotaku for years, I didn’t see they were twisting the facts until they did this. They were scaring people by saying their credit card numbers were stolen, this could have had real consequences on people who believed this, and that’s the point, even though there are some people who know to take Gawker’s news with a grain of salt, and those people can still be mislead, it’s the responsibility of those who see these things to speak out against it and demand quality journalism from those who say they’re journalists.
