Thanks! I am getting the torrent because the online version has been removed. I am not overly worried. I only used that password for Gawker and my private messages box was empty (I had deleted everything a while ago). But I was certainly curious if there is something more to it.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
