Hmm. We did this, too. For an entire DAY (February 27th, 2007, to be exact, if you wanted to be nitpicky and check the archives), we didn't cover a single trend on porn, Jews, Blacks, or Gays. The result? Devastatingly, suicidally low traffic. So yeah. Make sure to keep reading Buzzfeed if you love sex and/or racism.

Editorial note: Whoa! You've found a super-old post here on BuzzFeed, from an earlier era of the site. It doesn't really represent where we are anymore, and may in fact be totally broken, but we're leaving it up as a part of our early history.
