Third episode in a continuing series...

... of antivax morons


 
You'll recall from yesterday's post that Jane was the lovely lady wishing that my next shot was a lethal one. She then suggested that my good friend Peter should "gargle bleach [to] help with the smell of shit of your breath". Jane is a wonderful human being. She also later accused Peter of being incarcerated for 18 months for aggravated assault (untrue), and of being sued over a post on his "ratbags" webpage (also untrue).

I hit my posting limit this evening, in addressing the pure idiocy of these folks. Today was perhaps a little less juvenile than yesterday's descent into the schoolyard, but the lack of critical thinking was no less prominent



"Mj" has been a particularly special case today. Numerous assertions posted, nearly all of which would turn out, after research to be completely opposed to the AVN's view. One in particular took moments to debunk:



This was the biggest fun of the day, but probably the biggest action from the Antivax side was MJ's declaration that she was leaving and forming a new discussion group, which was "NOT FOR DEBATE". Odd definition of a discussion group, but still... there you go. The group can be found... here.

Towards the end of the evening, the lovely Jane started deleting her own posts, to the point that our responses to her (now missing) posts started to look like surreal comedy



The missing post at position #2 was along the lines of "I said gargle, not swallow". The one at position #4 was along the lines of "you're pathetic". I really don't recall what it said, excepting that once it went missing, I noticed.

So, situation normal, pretty much. The AVN are continuing their campaign of anecdotal evidence, strawman arguments, misdirection, subject changing and flat out insult. Not one substantive link has been posted, but a few of the AVN's own links have turned out to support the skeptics' side, without us evening having to do the legwork.

Again, the supporters of the AVN have lost the game.

Expect MOAR!!

I have Saturday's party to arrange tomorrow (hope you're coming, skeptic mates!), but I'll be checking in on the AVN through the day. This will be, as the current trajectory suggests, a triumph.

Is this a conventional therapy for halitosis? Or is it another batshit CAM modality?
