Original article and forum poll follows: 

As some of you may or may not know, this week marks the arrival of Destructoid’s executive editor Robert Summa to the City of Angels. We will be podcasting live  tomorrow night, accompanied via interweb by Podtoid favorites Ron “amazingly large balls” Workman, Aaron “crisis averted” Linde, and Earnest “Nex goddamn I have a lot of names” Cavalli. We hope to discuss all manner of business, including the first steps in Destructoid’s eventual takeover of Los Angeles. We hope you’ll reply with your questions, comments and gameplans for world domination.

UPDATE: Tonight Ron Workman will unveil his extra special secret he’s been keeping under wraps all week long. Is Ron actually going to admit to his homosexuality? Will he leave Destructoid for an illustrious career at Microsoft? Do you dare to jump in the forums and guess? Make your vote count. The news wont be a secret for much longer!
