The Scientific Activist

One Thousand Comments and Going Strong

As ScienceBlogs approaches its 500,000th comment, The Scientific Activist just passed a milestone of its own: its 1,000th comment since joining ScienceBlogs. In the spirit of the occasion, then, I’d like to thank everyone who has commented on the blog–whether regularly or just once–but special props go to Dr. SLC, who graced us with comment 1,000 in a discussion on HIV/AIDS in South Africa that has… well… taken on a life of its own.

So, for those who have not commented yet, give it a try. It’ll feel good. Trust me. (Plus, there are prizes!)

And, without further ado, here’s to the next thousand!

    1. Although Mr. Anthis was perhaps being a little snarky in italicizing the Dr. in from of my initials, I actually do have a PhD in physics from a reputable university.

    2. Interested readers might want to go to the attached link to a thread on Tata Smiths’ blog on HIV/AIDS which has accumulated, as of this writing, some 168 comments. Some earlier threads on that blog on the same subject accumulated as many as 500 comments. As I stated on the other thread, this topic draws the whackjobs out of the woodwork and fortunately there are people over there like Chris Noble who know what they are talking about to refute their nutty claims.

    No snarkyness intended on my part: just being facetious.

    Thanks again for the comments!
