Skeptic News: Skeptic responds to AVN claims of harrassment

From: Dan Buzzards Blog

For some time now Ken McLeod has been the target of numerous attacks from the anti-vaccination movement. Most notably the Australian Vaccination Network (AVN).  These attacks started in 2010 when Ken submitted a complaint to the NSW Health Care Complaints Commission (HCCC) which they upheld.

As a result the AVN chose not to follow the HCCC reccommendations and instead attack the complainant.

The AVN has been making outrageously false accusations against Ken for nearly three years. So he recently sent a few emails out explaining the allegations being made against him and asking that they be substantiated (the full text of the email is available on Dans blog).

The president of the AVN, Meryl Dorey, has taken offence to this and is now accusing Ken of harassment for simply requesting that people ask her to substantiate her claims.

The Australian Vaccine Network seems to be particularly mendacious in the tactics it uses to attempt to silence it’s critics and the skeptics who stand up to their campaign of misinformation.
