You may be aware that there is a huge discussion about framing science going on in the blogosphere. It has gotten out of hand. But, for those who want to dig in, or want to analyze the posts and comments (that is a lot of data!), here is the comprehensive list of links (excluded are links to Creationists' sites). Most of the posts also have long and interesting comment threads as well, worth reading through:
First, the source metarial, i.e., the stuff that appeared in non-blog media, and some background resources (which, if everyone have read them, would have reduced some of the misunderstandings):

And I must admit that I'm quite impressed by the work you must have put into making this post.

I nominate Bora for the title of single most thorough blogging archivist ever.
Thank you. Keep them coming. I'll be updating this for a couple of more days....
You have no idea how astonished I am that you found my blog. Stunned might cover it. Truly comprehensive. Weel done. I might just add you to my blogroll...
I don't have time to read all this! Maybe if it was framed differently....
(As should be obvious from the way I blog about science in relation to every day stuff, I'm leaning far towards your/Nisbett/Mooney take on framing, but I just really don't have time to see what everyone has to say for or against it. It's talking about talking, instead of actually talking -- hold on, I think that was actually one of PZ's arguments in the whole debate. I did read SOME posts.
Anyway, no time for talking now!)
Well at least we have a lot of anecdotal data now to work with in how people perceive our argument. ;-)
Representativeness, obviously, not withstanding.
Thanks for putting this together.
Bora, thank you for the immense effort you've put into digging up all the commentary on this issue! How scientists should respond to the intellectual and political attacks made on science in this country just might be one of the more crucial real issues of our time -- just maybe. It's easy to see it having implications that go well beyond the debate over framing itself. Again, thanks for this organization of the debate!
Wow, well done! Now if you would do this for the other discussions in which I'm interested....
Rather cool that several of us picked up on the Joshua Bell article in WaPo as a rather well-timed example of framing.
Thanks for putting it all on one page! Just looking for all the posts was starting to become distressing.
