More ironic than a bucketful of Alanis Morissette records

Equally as amusing is when he an his fellow clowns post links to the BMJ in an attempt to borrow credibility from the journal. Following the link almost always just shows it to be a ranting letter by John Stone they have published. Do they think we don't know how to click on a link or do they genuinely think a letter in a journal is the equivalent of a research article? nutters.

Puzzlebobble - given the claims of JennyR that google is a better diagnostician than any doctor (I think that's roughly what she said anyways), I think I'll go for option (b) - they think a green ink letter carries as much weight as any scientific paper. Or more so - after all, it has been written by that impeccable source John Stone.

Cheers,
