Nick Denton Says Giving Up on Reader Comments Is a Big Mistake

Gawker Media founder Nick Denton has a lot of things on his mind right now, not the least of which is the future of his company as it goes through a court-ordered bankruptcy auction—a process sparked by a $140-million court award in the Hulk Hogan case for publishing a sex video.

But that’s not what Denton wants to talk about this morning.
