One thing I neglected to mention in my post yesterday is that the overwhelming majority of feedback–probably 95%– I have gotten on this blog has been positive.
Most people who have given feedback find it refreshing that someone will actually say what they think without waffling or trying to bend over backwards to be politically correct.
Many of these folks have contacted me privately over the last year to say how much they appreciate the blog. So, I wanted to send a big “thank you” their way. I really appreciate the support. Many of these people are scientist and some are bigwigs who for understandable reasons wish to remain anonymous.
Also, I wanted to say that I have no plans to shutdown this blog.
