    Dit you just call all non-blogging readers if your site an asshat?
    (Not yet disputing the statement, first want to make sure this was not a brain fart)

    Phew. Fortune be praised that I’m an asshat, so I’m safe from waking up one day with a blog.

    …well. A blog on FtB, anyway.

    No, of course you aren’t an asshat. I’m just exaggerating to say that precluding asshattery is probably the major limitation on the size of the network.

    Try again and post the result of your search instead of the search itself.

    Yes, Google has become very annoying.

    Yay! An excellent choice. Alex Gabriel’s post on Dawkins and Islam said what I wanted to say, with far more eloquence than I could muster.

    Funny how “skepticism” was last in the title and “queer left politics” is mentioned first. Telling. Can you guys just rename yourselves “HardLeftistBlogs” and drop the pretence please?

    *checks blog title*

    Guess what!? This is Freethought Blogs. For almost 200 years, Freethought in the United States has been associated with the left–and with the belief that “It is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone, to believe anything upon insufficient evidence” (William Kingdon Clifford).

    You didn’t know that, did you, mrheteronormative? Based on the evidence (your comment), I’m guessing you’re a “Skeptic.” They tend to be shallow thinkers who greatly overestimate their own cognitive abilities. Also they tend to be assholes.
