Huh. So some cranky anti-Watsonite scribbled up a petty screed against her on r/atheism, which is stupid and negligible, except then several people start complaining about the horrible Pharyngula people who just downvote everything right and good and manly.
There’s probably a large Pharyngula block vote around on /r/atheism; when the whole elevator shitstorm blew up, that whole crowd sided pretty solidly with Team Rebecca.
I had no idea! I’ve never even tried to dispatch a squadron of winged happy monkeys to reddit for such a thing! Without even lifting a finger, I’ve been skewing polls on reddit.
So here, let’s give it a shot. Go read the goofy thing (“Tl;dr Rebecca Watson is a bitch.”), make your own opinion about it, and vote it up or down. Right now, it has 87 points (70% like it). Go ahead, skew it one way or another — we’re going to get blamed anyway.
