The Bad Idea Blog is a discussion of lousy thinking, wherever it may be found. It can’t be bargained with. It doesn’t feel pain, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until we aren’t dumb.
That said, the Bad Idea Blog also greatly welcomes being called on its own lousy thinking: corrections of faulty fact and awful argument will be issued after a brief period of hemming and hawing in denial culminating in a final, tearful breakdown. Cookies will not be issued.
“Bad” is not a mystery man, nor famous enough for anyone to care about the mystery, but he doesn’t (and more importantly his employers don’t) much like being Googled in any case. You’ll just have to be content knowing that he’s a swell science geek in his 30s who has been a long-time yammerer in the science, skepticism, and unbeliever community under various silly pseudonyms.
And sorry ladies and gents, but Bad is married.

Note: Due to the rather high volume of spam requests, I don’t do “link exchanges” by emailed request, even if you really are on the up and up. If, however, you ever happen to link to my blog in some way, and I follow that back to your site, and like something you wrote, rest assured that I’ll find a reason to link you at some point. And if that happens a lot, I’ll add you to the blogroll. That’s how it’s supposed to work, after all. All nice and organic-like.
