I had a comment really take off for the first time ever, and now I'm scared I will never again know the vast and boundless love of the Gawker commentariat. It's pretty intoxicating! I've got like a little rat-pressing-the-lever-for-a-pellet action happening here.
Also more grey-ness shenanigans, it was like yesterday once my comment became black I was temporarily ungreyed on Valleywag, because I could promote people out of the grey within my thread—and now not only can I not do that anymore, my own replies within the thread are now grey. Wtf? I have to stop driving myself crazy with this shit. I want there to be a logic to it.
