I'm assuming that most of the folks outraged over the ousting of Jeff Gerstmann haven't spent a lot of time looking at Gamespot's parent site. Cnet has never been much more than some text to fuel advertising banners and Gamespot was one of the few exceptions to the rampant douchebaggery that plagued the rest of the site. I really hope Jeff finds a spot elsewhere that doesn't sacrifice quality of content in hopes of scoring higher ad revenue. It is a shame but does allow me to remove yet another feed from the reader and a chance to rinse the bad taste out of my mouth. The bad publicity from this alone should undermine the credibility of the remainder of Gamespot and hopefully encourage other folks operating under the banner to look elsewhere for ad dollar trickle down.
