I have moved its activities over to the Skeptic Ink Network, run by John Loftus and Ed Clint.

This is the link for The Hellfire Club for you to use, bookmark, and send to others.

[Redacted: 19 February 2015. As announced last week, this I have now officially moved back to this site. The reasons relate to other priorities and workload issues that make it unlikely that I will be able to post frequently or regularly for the foreseeable future. That makes it inappropriate to stay on a blog network where I can't pull my weight. I remain on good terms with Ed Clint (the site owner) and the network more generally.

Skeptic Ink will retain an online archive of my posts made there during the two years that it hosted a version of this blog.

For now, other projects of mine will need to be my priorities, not least my own books. When and if I do return to frequent or regular blogging, I'll announce it here and elsewhere.

Meanwhile, don't forget to follow me on Twitter, where I tweet as @Metamagician.]
