About Those Slogging Rights We’re Auctioning Off

posted by on December 10 at 13:49 PM

The Slogging rights we’re currently auctioning off are the same rights all editorial staffers and a few freelancers enjoy and the same editing rules apply to the winning bidder. All Slog posts are subject to editing, we reserve the right to edit or yank posts. So while we’re auctioning off this item in good faith—and to raise money for charity (because once a year we do something nice)—we’re not going to allow the winner to hijack Slog anymore than we would allow one staffer to hijack Slog.

The winner doesn’t have to like us—it would be more interesting if someone that didn’t got the item—but you won’t be able to blow in here and make Slog unreadable or unbearable for others by swamping it with idiotic posts or screaming indictments of everyone on the masthead and everyone we’ve ever slept with.

Don't worry,I can't afford to bid on those things.

Besides, while I occationally differ in opinion, I do owe my life to The Stranger... quite literally. So I would endevour to do a good job if I had bid and won such a worthy prize for charity's sake.

Which is why I stopped at $400.

I'm guessing these rules weren' pointed at some like Mr. Poe, but more towards someone like Ken Hutch. i'm sure he wouldn't mind putting some of his hate-speech money towards forcing the word of god onto slog readers screens.

I can think of someone whose handle begins with "ecce" and ends with "mo" who might have trouble adhering to the rules.

Break the rules, lose your Slogging rights.

My first act would be to turn on the commenting on the missing snowboarder post.

Adding caveats to something already running for $405 is a little taboo..

Whoever wins shouldn't allow any comments on their diaries. That would be great. Too bad that guy who took out the full-page rant ads died, I'd love to see him posting on Slog. For about a minute, anyway.

Aw shucks - I was planning to do a big series of naked women.

You seem to favor hairless young, some seem really young, men.

Maybe I will make posters and put them on City Light poles late at night instead.

If I was the slog winner I would do nothing but economic/financial posts.

I would totally bring my right-wing rants here if only I had $406.

Posted by Andrew | December 10, 2007 3:24 PM

Of course they can't do it about everyone the staff has ever slept with - they only HAVE a WEEK.

"...or screaming indictments of everyone on the masthead..."

Dan Savage, hypocrite maximus.

What an ass. He calls everyone a jackass, dickhead, asshole etc. But the one time anyone gets a true opportunity...for charity! do payback...he sets some rules. Can't trash Dan or the short guy.

Grow up.

Posted by Gutless in Seattle | December 10, 2007 6:46 PM

Yeah, @14, because "payback" is such a grown-up thing to do!

Posted by Irena | December 10, 2007 10:03 PM

Wait... you guys edit Slog?


I wanna see some evidence of that.

"The winner doesn’t have to like us—it would be more interesting if someone that didn’t got the item"

With grammar skills like yours, Savage, the editing should be a real joy to behold.

someone WHO didn't. Persons are not things.
