Gawker Media has implemented a new commenting system that it hopes will curtail the problem of users leaving rape gifs in comment sections. The new system only displays comments from approved Gawker users. In order to see every comment, you will now have to click “see all.”
Jezebel staffers had penned an open letter to Gawker management, complaining that the rape gif problem was being ignored.
“We receive multiple distressed emails from readers every time this happens, and have been forwarding them to the architects of Kinja and to higher ups on Gawker’s editorial side for months,” read the letter. “Nothing has changed.”
