Our sis over at AoA has been getting her knickers in a twist over some confusion about genes, worms, and SBC. Brother over at Science Blogs is on a lock-down. There never really was any dirt on Orac, no conspiracy. Simply a case of the big money advertisers on science blogs asking the admin to ask Orac to 'tone the cannabis and the Jacob down please' as money was threatening to pull out of the advertising side of things.
The only thing Orac every really did *badly* wrong was to censor Jakaranda ;)
Call off James Bond, put the kettle on. Nothing to see here. Move along.
