Sorry for the Weird Emails

Those of you who have subscribed to Skepchick via email recently received about 20 “new post” notifications, all of which appeared to be posts I wrote in Latin. I’d like to assure you all that we have not been hacked, nor have I been possessed by a Catholic priest. Or demon.

Nope, it’s just that there are exciting changes coming to Skepchick (which do not involve a switch from English/Spanish/Swedish/Norwegian to any dead languages), and so I’m tooling around with things on the back end. (That is not a double entendre.) The site did a weird thing it wasn’t supposed to do, for reasons I cannot yet understand. But, I assure you, it won’t happen again. Apologies!

  1. I dunno. I recently came across some Latin graffiti on a rehab hike. It translated as, “It constitutes a great.” I don’t know what it was, but apparently, it was great.

    Latin may be experiencing a comeback. Either that or the graffiti was proof that time travel is possible.
