Let this serve as a warning to anyone else trying to pull a fast one on readers here.
Sandra A Hermann-Courtney (@brownbagpantry) is, like many a member of the cult of homeopathy, a very nasty piece of work. Typical of her style is the very first comment she has ever posted on this website, which was beneath this blog and which says, “Those who oppose homeopathy are nothing more than well-funded and highly-organized disinformation operations in full-swing throughout the internet. From forums to comment boards and even professional websites that have only one purpose: Defame, distract, and destroy the truth.”
That comment is very similar to other comments she has posted elsewhere, including her own blog, so it was something of a surprise that she would come back the next day and post a second comment claiming this:
“This is an actual post by me. I never posted any other comment on this site. The supposed comment by me (above) was added by someone who controls this site so that the members here would have a reason to post their childish comments. Not working. Just another example showing the ends to which you will reach to manipulate the truth. Guess this will be deleted. Better take a screen shot.”
When challenged about this behaviour (on a different website), she repeated this lie saying,
“I never wrote or posted that first comment. The choice of words, the phrases and punctuation, including the dashes between words is not my style. Further, I keep everything that I post in my files. Guess what, that comment is not in my files.
Your tactics are exposed, again.”
I know that nobody who matters believes her and I don’t have to do this but to hell with it, why shouldn’t I when she persists in claiming that I wrote a despicable comment and attributed it to her? Here are the screenshots from the back end of this website, showing the ip and email addresses she posted BOTH comments from.
Edited to add: By the way, with reference to Sandra’s protestation that she doesn’t use dashes between words, a quick skim through her website reveals the following examples: cyber-bullying, woo-woo, snake-oil, dis-allowed, 10-year. I’ve captured the page here.
