More on Comments and Censorship

Hi Folks – I’ve gotten (rightly) a number of emailed complaints about the number of comments that are disappearing, and more questions about whether I am censoring comments, or moderating them. Other than a few occasions for egregious attacks on other posters or sucking up my time until I had no other choice, I don’t…

On the Comments Problem

So I’ve been offline a lot the last few weeks – as you know we had 10 kids in our house for a couple of days the week before Thanksgiving, and I was out of town until yesterday. While a few posts have gone up, I’ve spent absolutely no time on anything other than absolute…

I Am Really PZ Myers!

It was a busy weekend here – figuring out whether we were moving, my sister was visting, other friends were visiting, we hit the local County Fair, worked in the garden, you know, life.

Back to Work

As a lot of you probably knew long before I did (we loaned our computer to our housemate who is frantically prepping for his orals ;-)), Scienceblogs took down the Pepsi blog. This actually exceeded my requests to management as parameters for me coming back. I had asked that Scienceblogs create a separate area for…

Blog Suspended

Until Science Blogs decides whether it wants to be a platform for science writers or a platform for corporations to buy credibility, this blog is on hiatus. You can find my work at Ye Olde Blogge aka www.sharonastyk.com. Updates as events warrant – or rather, if events warrant. If you’d like to find out the…

I’d been planning to write this post for several days, and then late last night, got a nasty surprise that changed the focus of it for me. By now many of you will have heard that Pepsi bought a blog on science blogs and is using to to establish credibility by writing a blog focused…
