Oddjack: RIP

It seems that Oddjack, a gambling blog that's part of the Gawker Media empire, is being terminated on Dec. 2.

I've enjoyed my visits to the site, so I'm sorry to see it go.

In the fishbowl NY piece reporting the site's fate, Gawker founder Nick Denton says: "A.J. Daulerio, the editor, is a trooper, and an amusing writer, but the audience was never there." The piece goes on to say that "According to Gawker traffic statistics ... Oddjack had 420,000 pageviews and about 180,000 visitors during its peak traffic month of September."

Wow - 180,000 visits and you've got trouble? I think if you remove the four zeros you're closer to my traffic number. Good thing I'm not owned by Gawker.
