Alright, I think we’re narrowing in on the most irresistable blog entry: Atheist squid having sex in an MRI.

…with Ann Coulter, you know how, hard.
“[Seed] got the idea that blogs can’t work with restrictions,” said Myers[…]. “There hasn’t been a peep from the editorial desk.”[…]
Brayton was concerned, however, about the editorial policy. He spent a few days negotiating his contract to ensure he had editorial carte blanche.[…]
Smith and Myers also had concerns about editorial control, but were assured that Seed wouldn’t interfere with their posts.
Remember when Frinktank used to be a ScienceBlog? Good times.
“Seed expects to hire a full-time blog editor soon…”
Er…to serve what purpose?
Well, I guess that the only thing I have to say is that anything that gets the message out there, creates discourse and gets people thinking (ok – that one might be a stretch :P) has to be a good thing.
Keep up the good work Pee-Zee :)

Yaaay, Australopithecus anamensis
Hope that IDGod has been keeping slim, those gaps are getting smaller…
Not to excuse anything, but anonymity makes things a lot trickier, legal-wise. I’m curious what agreements, if any, other anonymous bloggers have made here? [Orac, GrrlScientist, are you listening?]
“Australopithecus anamensis”: the phrase that strikes fear deep within the hearts of creationists, IDers and fundies of all varieties.
I know that Frinktank mentioned their anonymity as a contributing factor, but as you point out, there are other anonymous sciencebloggers.
Mostly, though, I thought it was unusual that the article focused so much on the “no interference” angle, without mentioning Frinktank or the anonymity issues.
I think there’s a part of that story that isn’t being told, and in the absence of information, speculation abounds.
