Ever heard of Newtown Community Chiropractic? It's a chiropractic clinic in Newtown, and it's all about the community.
So much so that it occasionally runs anti-vaccination "seminars" at which employee/owner of Newtown Community Chiropractic Nimrod Weiner uses Newtown Community Chiropractic's premises, marketing, budget and 'reputation' to push an untrue anti-vaccination message to impressionable parents from the Newtown Community and the surrounding Inner West.
Oh, that Newtown Community Chiropractic, you say?
Yes, that Newtown Community Chiropractic.
Not very nice.
Anyway, one of Australia's fine national broadsheets ran a story on Nimrod Weiner, and a seminar he held at Newtown Community Chiropractic recently, which has attracted the attention of some actual health professionals, scientists and regulators.
Poor Newtown Community Chiropractic. Poor Nimrod Weiner.
I note with interest that while Nimrod Weiner has publically distanced his statements from the Chiropractor's Association Of Australia, he has not distanced his statements from his business in Newtown, Newtown Community Chiropractic, at which the seminars were hosted.
Nimrod Weiner isn't very happy about it. In fact, when I posted a congratulatory link to Newtown Community Chiropractic's Facebook page, He deleted it!
Perhaps it was a mistake. After all, Nimrod Weiner is committed to free speech, just like all other anti-vaccination loons, right? Well, we're not sure about that, because the Newtown Community Chiropractic Facebook page just disabled public posts.
Of course my good friend Spartacus was able to find a way back on. Goody.
So we'll soon see if it was a mistake or not, won't we? I do hope Nimrod Weiner sees the error of his ways and opens a constructive dialogue. Well, actually, no I don't. I kind of hope he withdraws completely and stops polluting Newtown and the Inner West with his quackery, but we'll see how that goes.

Oh, by the way, other science/provax/skeptic bloggers? You know what to do.
