As Mere-O commentor Tom Gilson (any relation to Etienne?) pointed out below, Mere-O has been reduced from “Large Mammal” to “Adorable Little Rodent” (scroll down) in the Truth Laid Bear ecosystem.

The upshot is that with the recategorization, we jumped from #2276 to #1895. Next up on the list? Ed Brayton, libertarian thinker (I think I’m right on this, but might not be), ID critic, and sometime contributor to IntheAgora.

Judging by the amount of commentors at our neighbors, it won’t be too long before Mere-O drops yet again. Such is the fickle life of blog-rankings.

  1. I, too, suffered the ignominy of dropping from Large Mammal to Adorable Little Rodent.

    My own theory is that anyone who has published comments favorable to ID is being de-evolved. I figure I’ll be Plankton by the weekend.

    Goodbye cruel world!


  2. Have you guys seem The Christian Prophet blog earning all kinds of discussion among underground Democrats? Today Jesus takes Christian socialists seriously to task.


  3. Any relation to Etienne? I could only wish!
