I'm curious as to where some folks got the idea that what Eli did/is doing is something new, controversial or especially skeezy. Whether you think it's ethical or not, following up, even very quickly, with the families of victims has been Day 1 stuff since Hearst or even further back. This is how the sausage is made, gang, and this is about as respectful and dignified a reporting of a "no comment" you'll ever see.

I doubt you quote these phantom ethics in the 10 other horrors you read about every day that happen further from home.

Yeah, if someone came after my crutch I'd tear them a new one too.

Wow. Who knew there were still people out there, music fans even, who weren't aware of how Chuck Klosterman rolls.

Now seems like a good time to mention that this was written almost 10 years ago:…

You know...this one came and went so quick I'm starting to think that they're announcing them just to rescind them at all the inevitable outrage, thus redoubling the illusion of listening to customers. That may seem a bit much...but the consumer world is getting to be a pretty weird place, if no less predictable than the previous dynamic.

@2/3...unless you're into serious dildo-slamming play, they're actually generally safer. Non-porous, easier to you can freeze them =)

These are getting entirely too common and obvious. I really think that the MSM is totally in on it and enjoying the hell out of it just like the rest of us.

Pretty ho-hum on all the ask and answer, but I'd like to nominate BOMBAST for the SL Acronym Hall of Fame.
Dec 27, 2011 MasMadness commented on SL Letter of the Day: Sound Counsel.
I think the commentariat is missing the face that this is a NEW guy the roomate is seeing...which means the loud fucking will likely level off, as these things tend to do...which is probably why Dan advised the path of least resistance. Just a guess. "Move out" seems a little bold for a slight aural overabundance of a NRE.

It looks like Metro is doing what MUNI did 10 years ago.
