William Dembski’s weblog, Uncommon Descent, underwent a recent facelift. Following a server change and software upgrade, Dembski announced his retirement from heading the weblog, citing work going on with Robert Marks. Dembski announced that Barry Arrington would now be in charge of the weblog. That left people speculating about “blog czar” David Scott “DaveScot” Springer, the person who handled most of UD’s heavy moderation duties in the past.
Wonder no longer. Barry Arrington had a thread titled, “DaveScot is no longer with us”, this morning, saying that Springer had “resigned” from his moderator post.
I had no idea Barry Arrington was that fond of spending time in the WordPress administration console.
Update: UD’s Infinitely Plastic Past shrugs and, behold, the post now has a friendlier title: “DaveScot has resigned”.
