Who’d have guessed that we would become the object…

…of such curiosity?

People need to think that there was some huge blow-up behind the scenes, probably because it makes the recent departures more interesting. There has been some recent tumult on the internal forums, sure, but that’s never not the case. Doc Bushwell and I have been mulling over the idea of returning to a more customizable site for months. Spite is not an issue and Seed treated us with class, plain and simple.

We’ve seen a modest decrease in traffic, but that’s to be expected and I don’t think any of us gives a shit. And while my coprolalia was pretty bad at times on SB, now I can be even more reckless and crass, always a plus.

    Which is why private forums can be a bad idea.

    I think it’s less about imagining that there is a huge blowup behind the scenes, and more about some SB’ers reactions to it. Drugmonkey’s comments on the post you linked too are a great example…

    Good point. Those with an inside track would do well to scale back their rhetoric.

    That, whitecoattales, is the heart of the matter. Like Kev said, we’ve been talking about a move for some time. Besides, I can’t tell you how much I missed the soft-focus chimp troop that now graces our background wallpaper.

    What started this whole laundry-airing was (1) Sanddouche’s gossip-mongering “OOh. I wonder what is going on at ScienceBlogs” post, followed by (2) Wilkins’s poor-baby head-pat-seeking whiny comment to that thread. In the absence of those two events, there would be no public discussion of this at all.

    There’s nothing like being able to engage in unmitigated crassholery from time to time.

    For a moment there I thought you were starting to bag on the Catholics as well. Surely a finer example of a soft-focus group of chimps would be hard to find.
