This is funny. Celeste Biever, writing at the New Scientist blog, reports that Conservapedia has blocked some 60 IP addresses from being able to even see the site, much less post on it. I can understand them banning those addresses that participated in putting fake entries up on the site, which is something I not only didn’t do but think was idiotic to do. Putting up the fake entries only gives them an excuse for all of the legitimately bad entries on the site that I was criticizing. It was nothing but the cyber-equivalent of teenagers TPing someone’s yard, it was juvenile and stupid and shouldn’t have been done. Criticism is a good thing; vandalism is not.
