His response to Greta throws out several accusations: there exist something called “controversialist” blogs, and their writers have anonymously informed him they’ve been directed to go on the attack by the founders for an “uptick in hits”.
I don’t know of these blogs. Can anyone point me to some?
I can say that there have been no such directions given at Freethoughtblogs, Scienceblogs, the Panda’s Thumb, or any blog I’m associated with.
There other weird things about that comment, but I trust Greta will handle it well; I’m just surprised by this novel conspiracy theory.
