But I have already ruled that you haven't made your case, that you have hurt your reputation by posting here and now have an inferior reputation to some random person who posts bad poetry from an Internet cafe, and that this is entirely the incorrect venue for posting. Further, your last post was not on topic (of what the policy for this forum is and should be) and was deleted.

Finally, in the deleted, off-topic post, you linked to an article in Medical Hypotheses, when the draft rules require a journal of good reputation. Even Wikipedia is aware of this jourals ham-fisted embrace of quackery and nonsense. For that alone, the post should be deleted.


Good one rpenner!

Non standard, unresearched "medical" ideas are everywhere and often popular among people without medical training or understanding of scientific method. It is estimated that people pay about as much for "alternative medicine" as they do for standard medical care.

The now standard and central strategy of evidence based medical treatment is stated umpteen times over in all contexts in reputable, mainline medical journals.

Well said.

There is far too much pseudoscience being peddled about these days and it needs to be put down with an "iron fist" if need be.

In a line from the movie Apocalypse Now, "The bullshit is piling up so fast, you need wings to stay above it"

Have to agree with RP with stricter moderation in this section.
There are far too many snake oil salesmen, pseudoscience and homeopathic nonsense around these days and it's getting worse.

As he says, you are talking life and death scenarios.

No Advertising.
No New Theories.
No Treatments for any disease or condition.
No Anti-Vaccine paranoia.

If you want talk about therapies, something you saw on TV, or your own medical history, fine. But if you want to recommend anything than seeing a actual medical doctor for an actual medical condition, expect to see your post altered or deleted.

If you do want to supply a medical opinion, then you had better support it with links to neutral medical news sites and/or journal articles of good repute.

These rules are just common sense and common courtesy, enforced with an iron fist.

Formally yours,

Rpenner
