A discussion with some Deadspin people about what went down: https://slate.com/business/2019/11/dead ... m-ley.html

It's a foolish hope, but, yeah, it'd be wonderful if that group of people could find a back that let them stay together and do their thing unencumbered. Much of reading Deadspin reminded me of this place at its best—smart and funny people bickering and making each other laugh, occasionally offering really insightful observations (that then get mocked into oblivion).
Not enough yetis though.

That's one of our little bits of distinction. That and lolputees and an iron-filings-to-a-magnet attraction to CTC.
