If you happened to try recently to get to one or more of the currently inactive yet still extant Scienceblogs.com blogs, you will have gotten an enigmatic message about how the blog is now archived or suspended.

That is a technical glitch. The blogs are still there even though you can’t see them. In fact, for some people logged in a certain way, they can be visited.

I am assured that this is being looked into and will be fixed.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

There is a huge amount of really important and cool stuff in those blogs. The evolution of the science blogosphere happened there. It would be like deleting Olduvai Gorge!

But they are not deleted. Nothing can go wrong …. go wrong … go wrong ….

    I’m still interested as to why every inactive blog seems to have gotten the ‘archived or suspended’ treatment except mine, which seems to have genuinely disappeared. Was I really so controversial?

    Geology, you know. Very contentious politically. Not like that biology stuff.
