A couple/ few days ago, someone (I lost track of who) who doesn’t like Freethought Blogs started the Twitter hashtag, #FTBullies, for Twitter discussions of how… um, I guess how Freethought Blogs are bullies.
The hashtag has now been adopted by a number of people who like Freethought Blogs — including some of the Freethought Blogs bloggers — with silly, absurdist, over-the-top accusations of all the horror and evil perpetrated by us.
A few of my faves:

I got in several licks before I realized that I had actual work to do. But this is the one that seems to have established my claim to fame:
Greta Christina @GretaChristina: #FTBullies are never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around & desert you. Yeah I went there.
