they had a big problem a few months back when their entire database got hacked... can't really blame, it was hackers after all. however, one must ask if they were putting enough effort into securing this information....
Great site albeit they had their database compromised so because of my lack of numerous passwords I had many accounts stolen because of all of Gawker. While it only happened once, I've made sure to have a separate email and password attached to my Kotaku/Gizmodo/Lifehacker/io9 account.
Brian Ashcraft, the guy in charge of Kotaku, is a stupid, stupid man. And they call themselves “The gamers guide” yet yesterday I went there and on the front page there were 4 articles that had nothing to do with games! Kotaku is immature and unprofessional. The other day they posted the headline “Scientist Plan Probe To Study Uranus”. WHY? It had nothing remotely to do with video-games. And Uranus? Really? We all stopped laughing at that when we were 7. And every time there is a story that allows the posting of titties, Kotaku is there.
Exactly what I’m talking about! http://goo.gl/OlWWP
Ashcraft writes an article that tells us nothing new, other the “Olivia Munn is Popular”. No Shit? Really? The entire reason he wrote the damn thing is so he could post a pic of Munn in a bikini. And leave it to Ashcraft to bring up Japan in an article were its not even really relevant.
Does nobody else see that Kotaku is complete trash?
