    Dear Consumerist: I love gawker media. Yes, just about every single one of the blogsites involved (‘cept wonkette… it’s has too much of a demographic bottleneck for me to enjoy.) I’m almost tempted to buy the somewhat recently released gawker media book, just to learn more about how the gears turn for you guys. There have been times where I’ve wanted to post something here at consumerist, but I wasn’t sure if I’d come off as a whiny bitch or just an uninformed consumer. I don’t like taking e-risks (the riskiest risks of all risks :D) With that said, I do want to say that I learn tons of stuff from the consumerist and I feel it has made me a better person, even if it is in such simple things as in how to letterbomb (not Ted Kazinsky letterbombs… more like… mass e-mails)and that sometimes being calm as a hindu cow (thanks fight club) is the best and not always the easiest way to handle things.

    All in all – Consumerist and fellow posters/repliers – you have as much respect as text can convey though HTML on the internet. Thank you!
