I encounter a huge volume of online articles and commentary on such subjects as Darwin and Darwinism, writing, bad science journalism, ingrown nipples and rectal prolapses, most of which I would love to have the time to dissect and disseminate here on this Blog, but being a mere mortal, I am going to have to be satisfied with simply listing them from time to time, just for the record:
