Since last Wednesday, there has been no comment activity on this site. As disorienting as our day-to-day has been without witty insights, well thought-out critiques, demoralizing complaints about the current state of Gawker, and requests to rehire Richard Lawson, I'm happy to announce that this Thursday, the new comment system will be unveiled.

For those of you who participated in Gawker's long-standing starred commenter system, you'll be very disappointed to know that those perky little yellow insignias you worked so hard for are now gone forever. We do appreciate your contributions in coming weeks, as our new commenting system is rolled out on this site. The best way for readers who want their comments to be a vital part of the discussion is to take a more economical and thoughtful approach. To commemorate this sea change, Gawker.com will disable commenting privileges tomorrow, starting at 6 a.m.

In this wild "new media" world, it's important for all of us—respectable newspapers and parasitic oxpeckers alike—to share freely, in a spirit of holiday cheer. So we were happy to see this morning that the New York Times has decided to borrow our commenting system. It's really the least we can do for you guys!
