Why is Everyone Jumping Ship at Gawker?

Like every New Yorker in the media industry I read Gawker religiously. Seems like they have been going through some growing pains because they have been recently experiencing major staff turn over. The latest to go are Gawker managing editor Choire Sicha and Gawker editor Emily Gould. Their departure comes months after the departure of Alex Balk and Doree Shafrir. I'm all good as Josh doesn't leave. I kind of have a thing for ginger.

Update : Dammit Josh is gone too (tear). The New York Times has a piece today with more details behind the resignations. Apparently staffers were being paid based on how many times their posts are viewed.
