      Oh ****, I forgot I wrote that article! Man, what a cool car.
    2. In my limited experience, I think you can do ok...

      In my limited experience, I think you can do ok with a lot of short quick hits (which is sometimes clickbailty nonsense) and you can do ok with a lot of in-depth, niche work. The challenge, and the...

      No, still alive. The management of the company moves to LA, the production staff seems to have been impacted, and some editorial employees let go. Those who didn't (it's not a huge team) move to the...

      Oh man, 2011. So long ago. Thanks for reminding me of this post, trolling par excellence.

      In the meantime, here's a post from 2014 you might enjoy about us "borrowing" every generation of the GTI...
    5. I wish that were true, while I believe most...

      I wish that were true, while I believe most people here would be smarter than that, we've had a lot of responses from people who were either scammed or were about to be and saw our articles. Most of...
    6. Thank you sir.

      Thank you sir.
    7. Hired or published? To get hired you have to have...

      Hired or published? To get hired you have to have a great pedigree (our writers come from Wired, the Financial Times group, Business Insider, The Onion) and be a little insane, but if you just want...

      There's no quota. We have eight full time writers and editors who get paid a salary and they have no set number of articles they're supposed to write, plus a lot of other contributors so that "300"...
    9. Agreed, and more people should. What we've...

      Agreed, and more people should. What we've learned from OppositeLock (here if you haven't seen it: http://oppositelock.jalopnik.com/) is that a lot of people have great stories they've never told....

      If our work only counts if it's something that meets your level of intelligence then nothing would count, because you're clearly the smartest man alive.

      Your personal issue aside, just look at Patrick's great Super Replicas work for instance:

      http://jalopnik.com/tag/super-replicas

      Or his work on Fed checkpoints:

      Since this thread is about to get locked anyways:

      The writers for Jalopnik are some of the best journalists in the business, even if everything they do isn't journalism. Sometimes it's just...
    13. How is this thread possibly still going?

      How is this thread possibly still going?
    14. Hah, that does sound unusually harsh. What I...

      Hah, that does sound unusually harsh. What I should say is: trolling is less effective than breaking stories, which it looks is where the real traffic comes from (Jeep Cherokee, CTS, 'Vette, Super...

      Just out of curiosity, I looked up how much of our traffic came from Vortex over the last 30 days and it's:

      4,040 (0.03%)

      Which is to say it's three hundredths of a percent. Not that I'm not...
    16. I promise you, we do not. It's just a perk.

      I promise you, we do not. It's just a perk.
    17. I'm sure they did, he had to sign a form saying...

      I'm sure they did, he had to sign a form saying he wouldn't syndicate the review ahead of time. Chris is the best person reviewing cars there is, and the most popular who isn't on a British TV show,...

      And the only one that'll honestly tell you about how it turns into a fear...

      I keep telling you, writing your name over and over again on an Airheads wrapper is not a resume.

      Just tried it, very uncomfortable. Stick to toilet paper.
