I'm sorry to dig this back up when the conversation has passed, but I have to, because it's absolutely pathetic and it's coming from someone with authority on this board. Moral outrage for clicks? You sound like a pissed off Gamergater. You need to be honest with yourself: you read Barstool because you're generally OK with its culture. The way Portnoy behaves doesn't register enough with you to make a difference. You're willing to overlook the disgusting behavior that Barstool and its rabid followers promote and celebrate. Calling the reaction to Barstool "moral outage for clicks" betrays any possible claims that you only enjoy certain writers and try to ignore the rest. Sorry - you have to eat the whole thing.The whole moral outrage for clicks (and Barstool’s circle the wagons responses) is all exhausting and unnecessary at this point, for me at least. I prefer to just consume the content and have tried to pare down my twitter follow list to do just that, but it’s unavoidable in some capacity.
And other equivocating bullshit.
