Sentimental yet sardonic [userpic]

Been watching SurveyFail for the last couple of days with great interest and maximum humour.

And now apparently ogi_ogas has picked up their toys and flounced off home. For someone who didn't know much about fandom, they've sure got that part down pat.

The flouncing may have more to do with the fact that Boston University told him to stop using his Boston U e-mail address in conjunction with the project. The university's IRB received quite a few angry e-mails and at least one phone call, and they ended up having a discussion with Ogi about methodology when it comes to surveys (as in recommending resources so he can set up a proper survey). I think he tucked his tail between his legs at that point.

OMG. This is the first I've heard of the TS/slash analogy. Can he not stop digging the hole deeper? ::flails at the totally unredeemable fail::

Yeah, I gotta say I don't really buy their apology. More importantly though, their book is already written and the deal is signed, so it's not like fandom being OMG!mean to them is going to step the tide of bad comparisons and incredible ill-taste.
