I wish him the best of luck, but I'm not bothered that he's leaving.  I don't hate HIM, I just don't think he was a natural fit.  Being an editor on Giant Bomb is similar to being a co-host on a morning talk show.  It isn't just about general knowledge about games and the ability to type articles, it's about personality and the chemistry with the other editors.  I just never thought his persona complimented the other guys.  No social link for him, I guess

I think intern is a pretty cool guy. He has haters and doesn't afraid of anything! 
 
Yeah I liked Kessler

Yes i'm sad he's leaving i loved Kessler Kam and his TNT antics. Didn't have a problem with him at all, felt he made a great addition to the GB act.

The Kessler Kam was awesome.  I will miss him for that alone.

Why do some people hate him? I must have missed something. "

Damn leaving already... I'll probably miss Kessler Kam the most. He should leave with a bang, leave something behind to be remembered or emotionally scar the entire Whiskey Media team. Whichever is fine with me.

I've always felt he received some unfair treatment from a certain sector of the user base but personally I'm indifferent about him leaving. The site certainly isn't going to suffer for it.

I don't really know him so I mean I'm not sad really. However, I would like to offer the guy my sincere congratulations on doing a good job and actually landing something as awesome as an internship with Giant Bomb.

I will miss the fact that he was not included more i liked  that he tried to keep things upbeat and he knew his stuff. The only other upbeat people now is vinny which is needed, been pretty moody on the bomb crew lately.

I guess I won't miss him much. He didn't really add much to the Giantbtomb crew, but I'd prefer it if they stuck with him to do the news instead of Brad N. Anyways, I wish him luck in becoming a successful games journalist.

Honestly I dont think TNT's will ever be the same without Kessler and I will truly miss him, but hopefully let this not be the last we see of Kessler on Giantbomb and may he cross paths with the Whiskey Media staff once again

7 pages of trite comments, and nobody seems to know enough about the guy to realise that he's a student going back to school for the year.

Internships don't need to end in hiring or firing.

Brad Nicholson isn't an intern, and there's nothing wrong with his news being posted.

Miss Kessler?  Dood, he's still going to be around on the forums and such.  Matt Kessler is everywhere.  Moreover, he tasted the Surstromming!  He's in Giant Bomb history now!

I'll actually miss him. I was getting used to his specific brand of quirkiness. Well, if his twitter/GB update is anything to go by, he'll be coming back around next summer. Well, I guess we'll see. See ya Kessler.

Thank God!  That kid was annoying as hell.  The only person in the GB office, I can't stand.  Such a lackey.  The worst kind of a tool is the nerdy kind.  
 
Good riddance and WTF was up with his racism?  That KKK stuff was messed up!  He was real Jerk.
