Return of the Hack

You know what I feel like doing? Roundups.

That's right. Beginning Monday, October 31st, Mad Bastards All will once again spit out daily commenting Roundups during the work-week.

I'm going to say that these Roundups may not be quite as comprehensive as the previous round. I'm also going to say that they may not happen as frequently - I may take a day off here and there. I'm going to say all these things to my spouse, my family, my therapist. Then, I'm going to dive back in the rabbit-hole like a lunatic and ruin whatever headway I've made in the past few months. Ah hell.

It seems quite a lot has changed while I've been away, including these recently announced changes that will allow for the non-humorous commenting that has long driven me crazy. Not to worry - these changes seem to be part of a longer-term goal of emphasizing Deadspin's commenting, whereas some other somewhat recent changes seem to have had the effect of discouraging commenters.

Well, we're here to help you sort some of that out. Or, at any rate, to berate you while you sort it our for yourselves.

So, have a great week, an even better weekend, and a sensational Halloween. Starting that very evening, the all-seeing all-mocking eye-in-the-sky will be back in action. Gamboa, I'd go ahead and double down on those window treatments.

Thanks.

  3. Weird, I was just about to start my own website-"Color Me Madd Bastards All"-on October 31st.

    Of course, it had nothing to do with Deadspin. It was just going to be a site documenting various things I do throughout the day while listening to the song "I Wanna Sex You Up", but since this means I have to start trying to make the daily roundup again, I have no time for that.

  13. THIS many people are still checking this blog to see if it's alive? Or was it announced in DUAN? I know I pretty much stopped commenting once you went away. This is gonna improve the comments multifold.

    As Lisa Simpson once said: "GRADE ME!"
