Good points, bio! I don't mind a lively debate either, but when someone starts resorting to calling the other a liar and basically ignoring anything that doesn't further their 'cause', it does get old pretty fast. And like you I have seen this type of person on every natural health oriented group I have ever been on. I do respond to them for a while, obviously, cuz I have a bit of spare time in the afternoons, but eventually even I can see when I am beating a dead horse---and this horse seems pretty darn dead to me! :)
It does make for a busy forum though, even if it is just everyone taking their turn trying to reason with the recalcient individual. This one seems so very determined though, I just have to wonder if he is here for other reasons than to 'debate'-- I am not giving up on my theory that he is earning extra credit by harrasing us! hahha
And I do agree with you on the idea that we here on the curezone and other yahoo Health Forums aren't in the least sheep just waiting to be fleeced. Probably one of the best things about these forums is that it is people like you and me, sharing their stories of success or asking how others might be dealing with some health issue, versus the idiots sitting in front of a boobtube and mindlessly dialing the phone number to get fleeced by whatever purveyor happens to be on the screen at the time.
I am sure these types of groups give big Pharma the willies because we talk amoungst ourselves and realize things that we might not realize otherwise, after hearing other people having the same problems with a certain drug or procedure. We start to see a bigger picture than perhaps Big Pharma and the medicial industry would like us to, eh? :)
