but a blog post with that title should never appear on planet.scipy.org.)
 It also seems to be the type of thing that could give scientific python a
bad name, on a high visibility website, a link to which is on the scipy.org
main page.

FWIW, it seems more likely to me that the site got hacked and taken over by
a spammer.
