Re-emphasis of a Rool

For some reason I’ve been getting a lot of items from people asking me to call attention to their videoes, their posts, their products, and their projects. Often these requests are accompanied by some statement like, “I think your readers will be interested in this.” Let me call your attention to the Rools, which are always […]

The coolest cat in the bunch

A gazillion people emailed me to tell me that, according to an article in Science, I was one of the “Top 50 Science stars of Twi**er”: to be precise, #30. That was a surprise to me, because I never tw**t, except to announce each post on this site, which is automatically fed to the Evolutionistrue Twi**er […]

Readers’ beefs of the week

It was a productive two weeks for beefs, given my heavy criticism of religion, which always brings the faithful out of the woodwork to defend their God. And, surprisingly, they are often nasty! (That’s a joke.) Most (but not all) of the following people will have had only one chance to post on this site. As usual, all […]

Readers’ beefs and insults

Yesterday we had the encomiums; today we have the opprobrium. It’s that time again, although most of the unposted comments that have arrived the past two weeks have been full of invective, lacking the unintended humor that makes me chuckle. The third one below is one example.  But again I’ll give banned readers a chance to air […]

Readers’ encomiums

When I am weary of writing here because I have a gazillion other things to do, and I am facing a blank page with little to say, I get dispirited, and then the Black D*g comes and whispers to me that all of this is in vain. But then I get some encouraging emails from readers […]

Feeds working?

I am told by a reader that, at least for that person, the RSS feeds for the site aren’t working, so that the emails that go out with each post aren’t arriving. I’m trying to determine if this is a general problem, so if yours has stopped working, just let me now in the comments […]

Readers’ beefs of the week

Actually, these have accumulated over two weeks, as I’ve been busy.   None have been posted; this is the detritus. This comment, by reader “Tyler”, was directed to a Caturday felid: White lions post: what the hell how can a creature so beautiful can be part of evoloution have u seen how complicated these beautiful […]

Note to readers

I would recommend that when you leave a comment, you also leave a working email address that you always check. Several times this week I’ve tried writing back to a commenter, asking them to rewrite their posts to remove invective, obscenity, or other unnecessary language. And in several cases those posts were returned as “email unknown.” […]

A request

I always invite readers to send me interesting articles or other things that could be good website fodder. However, as I’ll be either travelling or catching up over the next two days, I’d like to request that people hold off sending such things until Thursday morning. Otherwise they may get lost or overlooked in the tsunami of email. One […]
