3QD Hates Me. They really hate me!!

In a list of the most overrated things, we’re the Churchills of popular science:

Popular science: ScienceBlogs. Politics gets more hits than science, so ScienceBlogs recruits screamers rather than interesting popularizers or important scientists.

    Yes, but we are also Core Curriculum and Shakespeare. Beat that!

    Oh, I don’t think 3QD was specifically referring to *you* — while you’ve made occasional forays into politics and religion, you are one of the more on-topic sciencebloggers out there. And that’s a good thing, imho — endless posts about how Creationists or Republicans are stupid and/or dishonest get old after awhile even if one agrees with the characterization.

    I was getting ready to write a rebuttal (not just on the topic of ScienceBlogs), but then I saw it was posted by Alon Levy.
    Say what you will about him–he’s eloquent and obviously pretty smart–but he’s also very obviously 19 years old.

    I’m with Jonathan and the 3QD writer. If I want politics, I go to a politics blog. I expect science at my science blogs – which is what I get here and at the Loom, the only Seed blogs that I follow.
