Technical Difficulties.WHOOPS, OUR TIPS EMAIL IS SICK WITH PIG AIDS: Ha ha, how do we get into our tips email account, anyway? This is a funny sort of problem that happens regularly, because who really knows how any of this stuff is set up, and all the Gawker people who might know were fired/laid off long ago. So, if you sent important tips this morning, we didn’t get them. Might be working now, though!

Hola wonkerados.

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

Did you get the tip I sent telling you that your e-mail wasn’t working properly?

RobPetrified May 18, 2009 at 2:32 pm

It’s a well kept secret: The Gawker intertubes are run by Orlando expressway authority drones supervised by Ted Stevens.
That they EVER work is a miracle that proves the existence of your god.

That’s what you get for walling up your superfluous workers in a cask of amontillado or somesuch.

Well Ken, I can fix it for you but I’m going to need a bottle of rum, a cuban cigar and one live chicken….oh you might want to put a drop cloth down in the server room, it’s gonna get a little messy but hey, that’s technology.

This is why I send all my tips to Wonkette by fursuited singing telegram guys.

Who the fuck to you have working your back end? Lindsey Graham? Charlie Crist? Larry Craig?

Oh…never mind.

I totally failed to make a hobo joke up there.^^ I should be spanked.

I think the more likely case is that someone stopped affording to be baked/drunk etc and therefore everything went to hell. When are we going to see the street benefits of cheaper hashish??

I hope it has something to do with those virusy penis pictures I sent you last week.

Custerwolf May 18, 2009 at 3:09 pm

[re=319414]bitchincamaro[/re]: “virusy penis”
I won’t ask.

bitchincamaro May 18, 2009 at 3:11 pm

[re=319426]Custerwolf[/re]: I won’t tell.

Then you missed my tip that Sarah Palin is suing the owner of CrackHo.com for redirecting their site to Palin’s? http://www.boingboing.net/2009/05/15/sarah-palins-legal-t.html
Also.

BlueStateLibtard May 18, 2009 at 3:50 pm

Oh, so you’ll never get my e-mails detailing where Obama’s secret Muslin birth certificate is located, Sarah Palin’s true and shocking medical/marital history, and the secret role of the Walt Disney empire behind the current financial crisis? Too bad.

blogslut May 18, 2009 at 9:05 pm

Silly me. I tried that addy and it bounced three times. I decide to take it personally but having no pride, I emailed Sarah instead.

Wow, for people who run a website, you really are pretty shockingly bad at the whole “computers” thing, huh? Maybe you should hire my grandma as a tech consultant or something. She mostly knows how to work teh email.
