Gone: abogada

Why: (via email) "I have to say that in general I have become very unimpressed with the maturity level of the majority of commenters; and the "queen bee" playground clique mentality a few of them demonstrate. Don't get me wrong, there are many thoughtful, intelligent women and men who post at Jezebel— it is the rest of them that I no longer care to deal with. Please close my commenter account."

(And Moe gets the worst of it, too — how she hasn't just flipped her shit and banned all y'all is a true testament that she's drinking enough to not go all apeshit. I know I would've.)

All that to say, I think we need to show more respect to our hosts.
