The Atheist Blogroll

Fuck you, Technorati. Here's the atheist blogroll:

[Update: I'm persuaded by the arguments against posting the atheist blogroll. I really don't give a shit what Google and Technorati have to say about my blog or any other blog. Posting the blogroll is a reaction to their policies, and I don't want to react to their policies.

I have a sufficient number of readers that I consider my Google page rank and Technorati rating to be entirely irrelevant. I like to see who's linking to me, so I can link back, but I can discover the most relevant of that information by looking at my referrals from StatCounter.

I'm not on the Atheist Blogroll to improve my Technorati ranking or Google page rank. I'm on it because I'm an atheist, and the size of the blogroll shows our numbers. Likewise, I'm on the Out of Iraq Bloggers Caucus because I oppose the war in Iraq.

If Google and Technorati want to ignore these facts, then that's their problem, not mine.]

Post a Comment

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
