For all you bloggers, Mr. DNA gives us this at The Church Burnin' Ebola Blog:

Because Intelligent Design provides us with a never ending cycle of asshattery, because there are so many variants of woo available on the internet and because there are those of us who love vivisecting all forms of pseudoscience, it had to be done.

Inspired by Casey Luskin’s recent bout of Douchebaggitude, I created a little graphic “riffing on” - as Denyse O’Leary would say - BPR3’s “Blogging on Peer-Reviewed Research” icon. Here is the “Blogging on Pseudo-Scientific Douche-Bags” graphic, Mark II.


More at the link...

ETA- He's even registered the pictured url for future use.

Just a heads up: Blogging on PseudoScientific DoucheBags is up, with some posts for ideas and suggestions on how to best implement the concept.

JanieBelle asked about using the graphic for older posts. Personally, I think that's a good idea, and if anyone wants to try it out, just use the image, linking it to "http://www.bpsdb.org/" and add the tag "bpsdb.org" to your post. If your site is crawled by Technorati, the post should be aggregated at bpsdb.org...

unfortunately, the code didn't work in blogger and I had to use the picture. I hope nobody will complain about this Luskinesk behaviour at bpsdp.org

That's not a problem at all. In fact, I'd rather people host the image on their own servers, linking the image to bpsdb.org when possible.

Much as I like the underlying concept, the execution is going to prevent me from using this logo. If it were simply phrased as "Blogging on Pseudoscience", the nice cheery "FAIL" would be a welcome addition to various posts of mine. However, the "Douchebags" part is something I'm just not down with as a general addition to my prose, no matter how well-deserved the sobriquet might be for the target of the moment. Sorry. Would you mind providing a toned-down icon for wimps like me?

No problem at all, Wesley. I'll post links to the updated graphics once they're ready.

Plus there are probably many douchebags in the world who would rather not be associated with pseudo-science bloggers. They have feelings too.

I don't know if anyone else saw The A Daily Show last night, but Jason Jones did a segment on "Why Mitt Romney Dropped Out".  Why?  He's a Douchbag.

Sure. Right now, there's a few requirements which are negotiable if you think I'm being a hardass:

1) The image - whether you're using the one from bpsdb.org or hosting it on your own site - links to http://www.bpsdb.org (the code for using the images hosted at bpsdb.org are at the site)

2) Any future posts using the image contain a "bpsdb.org" tag

3) You're willing to - at the very least - have the headline of your post aggregated at bpsdb.org. At the most, it will be your post's headline and the first paragraph or first few sentences - the post will contain a link back to your site for readers wishing to read the entire article.

Is that agreeable?

I think I've got things running at bpsdb.org. The site won't officially be "open" until Tuesday, but here's the basics for those of you who are interested.

   
Quote
1) Take your pick of the graphic you want to use. Code for the icons and links to downloadable .png images for those of you who want to host the graphics on your own site can be found here. When at all possible, make sure the graphic links back to http://www.bpsdb.org/

2) When you tag, label, and/or categorize your post, make sure you add the "BPSDB" tag. If you create a "BPSDB" category on your blog, your posts in that category should show up, but tags are the best way to go (labels if you use blogspot).

3) By using the BPSDB graphic, you agree to the following:

  • The headline of your post, along with a summary paragraph (or couple of sentences) will be aggregated here at bpsdb.org
  • Your site will be added to bpsdb.org's blogroll
  • You won't run your blog like a douchebag and ban people just because they disagree with you. (For more details, see the fourth paragraph here)



Read the rest here.

I apologize if it seems like I've hijacked this thread... I'll do any future blogwhoring on The Bathroom Wall.

Are you aware that you still have a blog?

If you don't have a blog, and want to participate, PM me. Maybe something can be worked out...

Damn!  I forgot there WAS a Casey Luskin Thread!  I think the Attack Gerbil maybe needs some HGH or steroids so he'll register more on my radar screen.

I posted this on it's own thread, but it really should be here:  (Thanks Lou!)

So, in light of the Florida school news, and the predictable DI reaction, give you   Luskin’s Law:  The longer the whine, the better the sign.  

First, the latest from the Gerbil Luskin:

http://www.evolutionnews.org/2008...._1.html

You can quantify Luskin’s Law  by counting “Scare quotations”, with a direct correlation between the amount of scare quotations, and the amount of the Discovery Institute’s hate for the subject of Luskin’s post.

Please help develop this so that it is a more useful law.  At first, I liked it because of the alliteration, and of course it makes a lot of sense, but then realized that “Luskin’s Law” could be improved, and added to.

On further review, to make it actually a law, I thought to throw it out to the crowd, whose ideas are much smarter and more scientific that Luskin could ever hope to be.

We could also consider:

Dembski’s Dilemma:  Am I the smartest man in the world, or am I the smartest man ever?

Springer’s Principal:  More Tard Is Better.

Springer’s Corollary:  If you don’t understand it, ban it.  

Springer’s Last Stand:  The Banninator Button Is There To Be Used.

Discovery Institute’s Principal – None.  This is a non sequitur.

O’Leary’s Law: Like, never let them know what you really mean when you write.

We have visual evidence that Casey is teh gay.*

He's clearly forming the "Y" from the Village People's YMCA.

Added in edit:  * Not that that's wrong....

Ok?  Now you can all stop PMing me right?
