Fake Syrian blogger run to ground

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

In a previous post I speculated on the existence or otherwise of the Gay Girl From Damascus blogger, supposedly kidnapped by Syrian forces, after several sharp readers drew attention to inconsistencies and implausibilities in the blog itself. Well now, as you will probably have heard, the Gay Girl in Damascus has been revealed to be a straight man with a beard in Edinburgh. If you are interested in his spurious post-modern justifications for his subterfuge you can read them here.

Kudos to all those who spotted this early on.
