We wrote a lot of posts on Gawker.com this year. We also abandoned a lot. Here is a peek behind the curtain.

What follows is a list of titles of posts that were saved as drafts in Gawker's CMS but never actually published. The pitches, content, and kill orders behind many of these posts are lost to time. Those that I can remember something specific about are annotated. Read and imagine... what could have been.
