I asked, a while back, whether this place serves a purpose. And, after a most interesting exchange ranging from diabetes to constipation to mercury amalgam and personal attacks, the answer has come to me. This place exists for three different reasons. For those who strongly favour alternative therapies, it's a free play zone. For those who don't, it's a game of "whack-a-mole". And, for the rest of us, it keeps the absolute loonies from both sides busy sniping at each other, which means we're less likely to ever meet them in real life. No offence to those with open minds from both sides, but a few voices seem to drown out most of the actual discussion around here. Thanks for the lesson... m nesbitt Cynical Optomists Unite!
