Last time, it did come through later; feeds only check some fixed number of times per day, so perhaps it's just checking hours after you post or something?

If you look on the syndication info page, it tells you the last time it checked, and the next time it's scheduled to check. It looked like it would be a couple more hours, and since a lot of people read at lunch, I wanted to make sure that people knew it was up.

Fair enough :) It would be handy if they'd let you set the time checked!

Especially since my personal deadline is to have it up by 10am every morning

I dunno, I haven't noticed any particular anti-science bias on the part of feminists myself.

Fair enough, I don't have much to do with feminist communities or anything else these days, but I don't recall much anti-science sentiment when I did. People's reactions was usually more or less "Oh. Okay then, fair enough." to studies citing whatever. Or they'd pick apart the methodology, which is fair enough.

All anecdotal as hell of course :)

I've got the comments on the main site set to not require login or captchas. so far, the spam is low.

If you log in with a Google Account, however, you can set notifications for follow up comments.

i would add that the application of that "knowledge" needs to be given some context in PoS... a lot of people take covariance for causation when they apply science. science is a form of intersubjectivity, perhaps the one with the most predictive power. but that doesn't mean that it is invincible methodologically either...

would you mind if I copied this comment to the main site, so we have everything in one place? I think this is a really good point.
