1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    http://gizmodo.com/5833787/my-brief-okcupid-affair-with-a-world-champion-magic-the-gathering-player

    Synopsis: some horrible shallow editor at Gizmodo goes on an OkCupid date with Jon Finkle, world champion Magic: the Gathering player. She freaks out about this and write and article which the morons at Gizmodo allowed to be published shitting all over John (who IRL is actually a really great dude, met him once).

    She says some snarky shit like, shoulda googled him. Well, she should have. Jon made like a bajillion dollars playing poker post Magic and started his own hedge fund. He is actually brilliant. I wonder what she would have said if he told her that he was a hedge fund manager.

    /end nerd rage.

    Wow. That's what she looks like? I shouldn't be surprised...it's almost a known fact that no other demographic on Earth has a higher opinion of themselves than the 5-6/10 American Female.

    I love gizmodo...read it everyday, but that was such a FAIL of an article, I almost couldn't believe it.

    From that picture she's more likely a 3 or 4. I don't know what they were thinking. She's likely to get eviscerated for this

    Wow, I hope people rip the shit out of her in the comments section of her article. In her profile she lists her occupation as "journalist." Fucking pathetic.

    Kinda gives new meaning to the phrase, "Straight from the donkey's mouth," doesn't it?

    Stupid bitch could have gotten lucky and paired up above her class. Alas, she's too much of an idiot to realize it.

    This chick should be the leading photo of a new website called "women who look like men that happen to look like middle age lesbians".

    For her sake she'd better hope not. You really gotta be careful what you say about people on the webz nowadays; if people who possess certain talents and capabilities feel like you've needlessly slighted somebody (as in this case) you could find your life being made a living hell.

    This will not end well for her. Nerd rage indeed and this guy actually has some real chops to justify it.

    The folks at 4chan have already tried to flex their geek-muscle against Gawker.
