Just by the bye and since I'm here I'll go further on this - I don't think there is a "state of online skepticism" today, unless "does not exist" is a state of existence.
97% of posts at ISF are in the Politics tab and skeptical subjects draw a post or two. And that's in what is still clearly the biggest skeptical forum - about 900 active members. Without the MDC, there's nothing to work with. Outside of ISF there are several small groups of people who have forums in the name of skepticism but which are actually old pals' groups. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Skeptics, like lots of humans, seem to need a leader, and no Randi = no concerted effort.
But when you look at the numbers, it's all pretty obvious. The total number of people who care enough about skepticism to even be on a skeptically-inclined forum is less than a millionth of the number of people who read Farcebook eleventy times a day. And everything on Facebook is true, so who needs skepticism.
