And everyone else - if you think Catherine (or anyone else for that matter) is posting something that is a load of crap, there is a NICE way to say this. You can point out some piece of evidence that contradicts it, for example. You don't have to say "Catherine, you are full of crap".

That IS how it always starts out, Julie -- pointing out nicely that there are errors in some form.

Then CatherineCoy's typical response claims the poster said things they never said, cites inappropriate documentation, expands her fuzzy thinking. The unwitting poster tries again--nicely--to straighten things out. Of course, the list of items to clarify has now grown to include the ways in which Catherine severely distorted the poster's words. Catherine's reply is more of the same, and before you know it, she has begun resorting to nasty sarcasm and hung the "Official Medicine supporter" sign on the poster. The "full of crap" attitude starts with Catherine, and is eventually responded to in kind. She has insulted quite a number of people--all people who point out how misguided she often is.

This has been the unfortunate pattern on all three boards we have in common--Alternative Medicine, Health & Nutrition, Cancer Prevention and Treatment. No one follows her around in an attempt to persecute or silence her. She is the one attempting to silence those who don't agree with her authoritarian tunnel vision--and then pleading victim. And she's bleeding the life out of these boards.
