On the Vice article where HamNo took a few swipes at Vice's low compensation for freelancers, a user named BananaJew wrote a comment pointing out that Gawker Media regularly lifts content from Groupthink users without compensation. And that comment is gone now. Completely gone. It's not even visible in BananaJew's commenting history. Weirdly, my response to BananaJew is still there, even though usually any responses to a comment that has been dismissed disappear from view along with it.
