“I didn’t know if ‘taupe’ was a bad word” -@danbenjamin
How’s Wordpress doing? Pretty good:
I think so too, maybe meant as an inside joke/acknowledgment of the community. But I think there’s more to it.
I want to add that as "fuckyeah$THING" is a common trope in tumblr names, that "fuck yeah" in the post is an in-joke.

I use profanity in casual conversation, and don’t find it offensive, but avoid it on the air and in published writing.

Whenever I use profanity I feel I'm being lazy and uncreative. I tend to think the same about others.
the user base can be a tad irrational, so maybe it's an appeal to baser instincts. The CEO can still swear = maybe it's ok.
It’s a lesson in owning your own content. Only your personality matters, then. Listen up, Medium.
Who was the intended audience of that post? Tumblr users? The media? The general (Internet) population?
(I’m actually asking, not making a joke. I want to talk about it on QUIT! and I’m looking for your opinion to discuss on the show.)
Does closing your 1.1b acquisition post with profanity somehow assure users you’re still cool, haven’t sold out, and aren’t “the man”?

I'm right on the edge. I don't know what comes next.

I saw it too. Abrams got the relationship between Spock & Kirk right, and he even threw in a bit of Roddenberry morality.
Saw Star Trek Into Darkness, and enjoyed every minute of it. Didn’t love the first one, but this felt like Star Trek at last. Abrams got it.
Thank you SO much for the afterdark from Quit! Great Great stuff.
