I love how on Gawker there are people with a pathological need to basically defend the top 1% even after they've basically wrecked the economy and their influence has made sure we still don't have any real laws to prevent what happened in the 2000s from happening again.

I honestly don't really know anything about Aaron Swartz. I just saw his name start popping up on my Facebook newsfeed. As usual, Gawker's kinja commenting system puts the shit comments front and center.

I don't think I can deal with the stupidity of Gawker commenters anymore. God I wish the old commenting system was still in place where you actually had, you know, people who had an idea of what they were talking about.
