I just experimented by making a boring comment on a random story, and confirmed that I am an approved commenter on Jezebel. When did this happen? I got a notification when Lifehacker approved me. Does Jezebel not have the same set-up?
I really prefer the Gawker method of creating fully ten thousand separate pages and then challenging people to get individually approved on each one. I love the drama of it all. I savor the indignation of the persistently grey people around me. I love my own grey-ness. I enjoy hurling my random statements into the abyss.
This feels like nothing. Like a participation award.
