BS-Betty strikes again!  If we _have_ to have a CDA, why can't our 
congressional bozo's point it at BS-B's sort of stuff?  You can be
sure it does a lot more harm than anything you'll see in alt.sex.kinky_stuff!

THIS may be so Betty, but if you read the post properly, James did not
question the doctors reputation or expertise.  He no doubt had a long
career trying to help people & coming up with ideas.  Not all of his ideas
may be correct, though as you can only prove an idea WRONG.  
What James is snarling at is YOUR lamentable behaviour distorting dAta,
quoting only those reports that support your own point of view & your
hectoring spammy attitude.  I've heard  Christain fundamentalists that are
more moderate in tone than you.

again , emotional scumbaggery to support your argument...

what is your agenda that you implicate him in a "hush hush " conspiracy of
"epic" proportions?
this person has not stated that he has a wish to deny people access to
data, instead voicing a complaint against  your dietrary zealotry &
paranoid tendencies.  Your gagging of dissenting voices is practiced in
most dictatorships....are you getting the hint?
If only we could return your posts as you urge us to return products.
