UPDATE: We Got Undone Over Threadless

We felt so bad about our Threadless behavior that we’re posted our apology twice so it gets full-time, front-page coverage.

We’ve reconsidered. We messed up. We came across like stupid whiny bitches. We tried to abuse the power of blogs to get what we wanted. There was a good way to go about this, and an asshat way, we chose the latter. We’re sorry, Threadless, Shondi, Consumerist readers and all witnesses of this online travesty. Egg on the face while eating crow, scooped in with our own foot, really. You can keep reading further if you’re the type who enjoys slow-moving car accidents.

Go buy a t-shirt at Threadless. They’re cool, cheap and will ship quickly.

    Is this the part where we get to say that saying ‘sorry’ without addressing the problem is ‘flippant’?

    So what are you going to DO about it? (Besides saying ‘sorry’)

    That’s very big of you. I’m sure it takes a lot to admit you’re not right. We all have bad days. Thanks.

    You’re right.

    The problem to be addressed is lazy blogging and getting away from this site’s real strengths and purpose. We’re going to focus our energies on the bigger and better targets. We will dig harder for dirt on the companies that really mess up and do real harm, and mock them savagely. We will cease coopting the blog into a platform for two-penny soap operas and pickaninny personal gripes. We will avoid hackish vitrol and render our readers a real service, instead of a real disservice.

    We will try harder and do better.

    So, I’m checking the right-hand column over there and I don’t see a ‘Threadless T-Shirts’ ad, which is the only possible reason I can come up with for you guys suddenly growing up. What happened? I’m very, very confused…

    Right on. We’re still reading. on the whole, this is one of my must reads every day.

    Ben, thanks for your response.

    Looking forward to seeing you folks turn words into action.

    By the way, they just announced their $10 summer sale. Too bad 90% of the tee’s are sold out. I still bought a few, mind you, but there’s a bunch more I wish I could get.

    P.S. The girlie shirts run *very* small.
