No good intellect goes unbattered.

In this respect, CC was her own worst enemy.....she wasn't actually as bright or as knowledgable as she perceived herself to be. Regardless of her ability in this particular field, she certainly didn't demonstrate any particular knowledge, rationality or critical thinking skills on the H&N, Alt. Med and Cancer boards.......where there were a good few regular posters (the "board majors", I guess) who could see through her smokescreen with apparent ease.

Although I disagree with TMF's nanny approach and don't particularly agree with Ms. Coy's suspension (in spite of me being high on her $h1t list on the H&N board) I think it's a bit rich of her to complain about her removal as a form of censorship imposed on her when, in addition to firing insults right left and center at anyone who identified shortcomings in her presentation of facts or her faulty reasoning, her other method of dealing with dissenters was to FA their posts......thereby denying them a voice.

In reality, she's been suspended from the boards 3 times.....first as CatherineCoy. She reappeared as CathCoy and again got herself bounced and then once more (with feeling) as CatherineCoy. I suspect it was as much for her habit of FA-ing posts right left and center as it was for the number of times her posts were reported.
