Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

Skeptic successes in homeopathy

I've started a collection of activities undertaken by people skeptical of homeopathy and the successes they've had in taking homeopathy to task for its misleading claims. For fairness there's also a segment on failures which I'll update too - we can learn from things going wrong.

I'll also add a section for individual succcesses (eg NHS Lothian's decision to shelve funding for homeopathy was recently challenged legally by a homeopathy enthusiast but this challenge failed) but it's mostly overarching categories at the moment. It feels like there are a few more categories to be added but it's late...

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
