Comparing the Amazon debacle to Tawana Brawley is epic fail.

Yeah, I think it's on the level of Godwin's law.

See, I'm impressed with what happened in that it should how quickly and effectively the internet can rally for good.

Easy to be so snotty and know-it-all AFTER the fact.

It's not so much Gawkerfail as it is fail on the part of the author. I read that yesterday, posted on his blog. I note that he hasn't responded to any of the 150+ comments, many of which pointed out his faulty logic. I told him that the problem with his example of hitting someone with a car is that regardless of your intent, I'm still dead.

There's so much faulty logic that one hardly knows where to begin. Involved consumers =/= "hysteria." Bad corporate PR =/= attempted hoax by teenage girl who got in over her head. Et friggin' cetera.
