ANNOUNCEMENT: The Hellfire Club is moving

The Hellfire Club has moved its activities over to the Skeptic Ink Network, run by John Loftus and Ed Clint.

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

[Redacted: 19 February 2015. As announced last week, this blog has 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 The Hellfire Club.

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.]

I am happy for the new aggregator. But after the tin-pot dictator over at FTB let his minor celebrity status and rigid, inflexible world-view get in the way of free expression and rational thinking... It's turned into crap, along with most of the blogs there... Just like it did with Seed/Science Blogs...

And while I rarely comment anywhere anymore, I still read. Until the place becomes a toxic waste dump.

Are we going to do better over there? Because I'm not interested in the Junior High shenanigans of FTB.

Hi, Moses!

I thought at first that you were getting the Skeptic Ink Network confused with Freethought Blogs. They are very different things. But I take it from reading your comment again that you're fearful that Skeptic Ink will develop similar problems to the ones you're identifying with Freethought Blogs. Is that right?

Whichever you meant, please have a look at the Skeptic Ink Network (link in the OP). You might like what you see.

There have been some lively comment threads around here over the years and I hope that follows you over. I'll have a look and relink. I like your Talking Phi presence too. You're pretty good at keeping more than one ball in the air. Best of luck. I'll be around.
