WIKI FAIRNESS PROJECT
Wikichiro is entertaining a project to document the constant harassment on Wikipedia of anyone who edits fairly on alternative medical topics.
It is now clear that there is one standard for medicine and medical experts, and a completely different one for Doctors of Chiropractic and other non-MD editors.
We are going to open a dialogue to document those activities with the purpose of trying to resolve them amicably on Wikipedia. Naturally as this is really entrenched behavior and people are routinely being banned or blocked for making even very reasonable edits that contradict the gang opinion, it may require stronger measures. But let's take it one step at a time and simply diary the issues HERE.
Dr. Press is named Executive Technical Director for OurMed.Org
The sister relationship with OurMed took to another level recently when Dr. Press was asked by the OurMed Board to accept the post of Executive Technical Director. The Sister relationship began last year when OurMed.Org allowed a link to Wikichiro, which provides its sources for Chiropractic. Similarly, OurMed.Org, which has a very prestigious Board, will become the source for Wikichiro's articles on intrinsically medical conditions.
OurMed is a Medical Wiki-type site, with open sourced medical data, but with a difference; Ourmed is committed to honest integration of medical data and will require openness from its editors. And, Like WikiChiro, it will not accept totally biased reporting. Bravo! Viva, Ourmed!
NEW TWITTER CONNECTION: The WikiChiro Blog Now is equipped with technology that allows the postings to be PUSHED to Twitter, as tweets. This way, anyone interested in the subjects will receive them automatically.
