Why do I keep editing/toning down my blog?

Mostly because I do actually believe science works by cooperation and openness. There is always the nuclear option - the kill switch. But throwing your toys around most of the time is not useful. I do hate corruption and there is a lot of it. My dad was on a research funding committee and he was always troubled by the decisions as to who got funded and who got nothing. But what he couldn't stand were the scientists and their incessant lobbying and politics.

Mostly I moderated it because of this good advice from Stephan Lewandowsky and Dorothy Bishop . It is important to be part of the solution not part of the problem.
