I really was not going to comment at all about this, but…
I see Violet Blue’s name on the Fleshbot masthead as a Contributor.
It’s in Jackson’s Valleywag post (the first official Valleywag response and, I believe, the first official Gawker Media response) and Hamilton’s Gawker post. And no, in a huge story like this, I don’t think it should be assumed that because Valleywag said it once, people should just know, especially with three posts by three different authors.
Update: Owen's post has been updated and so has Melissa's.
