So this thread on the Goodbye John post got me thinking... Most of us have seen almost the entirety of the Gawker staff come and go. Yet it's pretty rare that one of the commentariat jumps ship. I say we celebrate ourselves for sticking around, and even using the new Kinja in spite of ourselves! Hell, didn't Denton say the whole idea behind the new system was to empower commenters?

It's with that I will bid John a fond farewell, but also extend a hearty round of self-congratulations to those of us who manage to weather all the editorial changes and Kinja and other assorted bullshit. And Neetzan. Never forget.
