Fuck You, Gizmodo

I was recently sent a link to a Gizmodo article that left me extremely pissed off, so it's rant time. Here's the article in question.

Go on, read through it, I'll be here when you get back.

I know, right!?!?!? What the fuck, Giz? You are calling GitHub racist and sexist for content that people post on it? Content that is little more than code comments, directories, and variable/method names. You may as well start calling YouTube racist for some of the videos it hosts. Hell, may as well say that Google is operated by Nazis because of the text it stores in its index. For fuck's sake.... is it that slow of a news day that you have to start attacking everything within arm's reach like some god damn tabloid? I mean, lets be honest with ourselves, Gawker is little more than a tabloid with slight tech leanings anyway. But seriously, they aren't even trying anymore. This is blatant stupidity. You know... Come to think of it... I think I've seen some racist and/or sexist comments in Giz's comment section... RACIST SEXIST PIGS!
