ScienceBlogs.com Bloggers go on strike

Jul 20 2010 Published by under BlogBlather

PZ Myers is on strike. And when the Big Dog strikes, eeeeaaaverybody strikes. Even Greg Laden.

Actually, PZ lays out the case that this is about the complaints that affect all of the Scienceblogs.com bloggers pretty well:

The key problem is one of communication. The bloggers here are almost entirely in the dark about what's going on behind the scenes, and we get news indirectly and by rumor. We've had almost no technical support for over a year; when we do hear what changes are being made, it's almost always trivial tweaks to support advertising. We report bugs, we get back silence. We see the ads that appear on site getting cheesier and cheesier. We don't know what's happening, and there is no mechanism and no effort made to enlighten us.

That'll do for starters.

What I'm wondering is who is going to break the picket line? Will they bring in scabs???
