In response to his comments on my newsletter, on March 19, 2008 I sent this note to Dr. Barrett, founder of Quackwatch - it remains unanswered.
In case you would like to write to him, here is his personal e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Dr. Barrett:
I appreciate your interest in saving the public from quacks, unfortunately your own biases show through with your generalizations.
I would be happy to meet you on any forum to discuss any topic that you consider worthy of debate.
This gesture would be one huge step above your usual approach of name calling.
But you may be too old and out of touch with the scientific literature to engage in such a confrontation, and are more comfortable hiding behind the quackwatch organization.
