ScienceBloggers and science bloggers should give the little Babyblab fuckers a break. No need to consign them to the deepest pits of hell just because they played a prank. Yeah, they’re fucking immature douchewheels. So what? There’s no need to go getting all maudlin and shit. It’s not like they’re sick-fuck right-wing theocrat bastard wackaloons or something.
Young whelps lash out at their elders. Their elders kick said young whelps back to the curb. Thus has it always been in the past; thus shall it always be in the future.
UPDATE: Outraged Babyblab commenter Matt Penfold got down to some serious fucking wackaloonery over there:
Since the original post was intended to be an socialogical experiment the issue of informed consent of the participants comes up. It is that ethical issue you, and the author, either cannot or will not acknowledge.
As for your claim that an apology has been issued, you are not being honest. An apology has been made for anyone who thinks they were insulted, but an apology for actually being insulting and an acknowledgement that the author libelled other bloggers and set up an experiment without getting prior consent of the participants.
I called on the owners of this blog to make such an apology. They have refused. As far as I concerned lets me know that they are not professional, not honest (not even would be scientists I hope, let us all hope they fail to get their PhDs) and do not know what integrity is.
Holy fucking moly!
