In regards to the recent PepsiCo blog situation (you know the one I mean), I wasn’t going to say much. First, because Chad did a good job at expressing my views (without me even telling him ). Second, I am just happy to be at ScienceBlogs – I had been kicked off two servers and had to hitch a ride on a friend’s server (thanks Bill) before arriving here.
Some other bloggers, were a little more put out. Now I understand why. I came to this understanding by doing a thought experiment. What if it wasn’t PepsiCo that paid for a sponsored blog? What if instead it was ESPN’s Sport Science? I think I would consider leaving too (but it would just be an idle threat).
