Skeptic's Circle #117 - Talking about the chiropractor and the chiropractic

Another day, another skeptic's circle.

Skeptic's Circle #117 is come to town, and it wants your spine.

It's the chiropractor / chiropractic edition, and boy does that mean their is plenty to be skeptical about.

Welcome to the 117th iteration of the venerable Skeptics Circle! As all of you no doubt know, one of the hottest topics in skepticism in the last while has been Simon Singh's legal woes resulting from an entirely reasonable article of his that the British Chiropractic Association, absurdly, thought libelous. In the wake of the mass reposting of the said article and Simon's recent decision to soldier on, I figured making this edition chiropractic themed would be appropriate.

The host this month would like to press forward against attacks from chiropractic organizations.

... So I propose we Google Bomb those BCA bastards. Here's what to do: take the words "chiropractor" and "chiropractic" and link them to: (which should look like: chiropractor and chiropractic). ...
They go on to mention some other links you could set up.

Like using Chirobase, British Chiropractic Association, or English libel law.
