UPDATE: Josh catches the essence, see below.
It appears the mendacious Joe Romm has been given new marching orders by Center for American Progress Big Brother Blog: “Think Progress”. From what I make of it, it seems the management realized that CP just wasn’t holding much readership, as it looks like the same 30 commenters or so frequent the place. Sooo…the spin is on. Joe’s doing his best to make his forced merger under Think Progress look like a win.
“Prettier”? Heh. Me thinks this is Joe’s “lipstick on a pig” moment.
What is most strange though, is this:
Not only are comments disabled, they are gone, all of them, from the present to when the blog started in 2006. That may be a temporary condition, but we’ll see. When I moved from Moveable Type back in October 2007 to WordPress.com, everything remained in place, comments and all and is still there today.
You gotta love a guy like that that treats his user community like they don’t exist anymore.
Joe’s last post was about his vision of Memorial Day, 2030
That reminds me to remind everyone (and especially Joe) to be sure to fly your flag this coming Memorial Day, to honor those who gave so much, but have not been forgotten (nor disappeared).
I look forward to seeing more “high quality” climate articles on Think Progress, like this one:
