In February I commented on problems I had with "Friends of Science in Medicine's" Claims, Credibility and Transparency.
Part of my concerns about FoSiM's Credibility was a piece in the SMH 5 days earlier, recounting an amazing tale of illegal hacking of an SMH opinion poll ('gaming', or massive manipulation).
In following up a piece in "I2P" (Information to Pharmacists, edited by Neil Johnson) by Peter Sayers, "FSM Strategy has no Middle Ground" where I was mentioned, I saw that the FoSiM CEO, Loretta Marron/Mutton, had penned a piece mentioning the same SMH article where she accuses Blackmore's of being "Blaggards". I find such emotional and judgement-laden words hardly fitting or worthy of a group espousing an "Evidence Based approach" only to all Healthcare.
This was published two weeks after the SMH article and well after mine.
My comment, on that article, submitted today:
Marron is considerably less than honest in her reporting of the gaming of the Poll.
I find what she's purposefully omitted from this article to be damning. Or was that just incompetence?
