  1. Hmmm are we talking censorship in the name of science.

    unfortunately Loonies need to be heard critiqued and then refuted loudly and clearly.

  2. No, not censorship - just making sure everyone understands the same meanings of words when they get used.

  3. after reading on some of the pharmaceutical company practices regarding diet pills and their liberal use of scientific terms to lie. you would become sceptical too.
