  • A NEW and GOOD Alternative to Wikipedia,especially on homeopathy!

    Dear Fellow Appreciators of Homeopathy,

    If you have ever read Wikipedia's article on homeopathy, you probably got
    very confused and quite angry. You discovered an extremely biased
    anti-homeopathy article that was full of misinformation. Such is the
    problem at present on wikipedia which is edited by anybody, and in fact, the
    vast majority of people who edit there do so under pseudonyms, some of whom
    work for drug companies, some of whom are bored teenagers, and some of whom
    are closed-minded skeptics.

    Luckily, there is a NEW good and viable alternative to wikipedia called
    Citizendium.org (www.citizendium.org). This site was founded by one of the
    two gentlemen who started wikipedia, Larry Sanger. Larry was concerned
    about the misinformation on wikipedia written by anonymous people, many of
    whom are not experts. Therefore, on Citizendium.org, he requires every
    author to edit under their real names. He and the Editorial Council grant
    authority to those people who are real experts and gives them the position
    of "editor." An article remains in "draft" stage (and is not readable by
    the public) until three "editors" propose acceptance of the article to an
    "Editorial Council."

    Larry Sanger personally asked me to participate in Citizendium in order to
    help create a high quality article on homeopathy. Needless to say, this was
    a real pleasure, as distinct from the "edit wars" typical of wikipedia.
    That said, other authors and editors on Citizendium are not necessarily
    "pro" homeopathy, but they are not nearly as vehementally antagonistic to
    homeopathy as are so many people who participate on wikipedia.

    I am pleased to announce that after many months of collaborative efforts
    from a variety of advocates and skeptics of homeopathy, the article on
    homeopathy has been accepted by the Editorial Council. You can now read it
    at: http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/Homeopathy
    I encourage people to consider using www.Citizendium.org rather than
    wikipedia if you want to obtain more accurate information about a subject.
    I also encourage people to consider becoming an author at Citizendium.
    Information on how to sign-up is provided at this website.

    Authors can now further improve this article by editing the DRAFT version
    until this next version received support from three editors and then
    acceptance by the Editorial Council. THIS is a rational process. And
    finally, the efforts on Citizendium to COLLABORATE rather than attack is
    admirable.
