I'm guessing you aren't familiar with Phil Plait, the "blog writer" you mentioned. He's an astronomer and not prone to manufacturing controversies. When he says it's "spreading like wildfire", that probably means that he's suddenly got a ton of email about it since he's the go-to guy for stuff like this. He wrote a great point-by-point rebuttal to the Moon Hoax conspiracy among other things.
