Friends of Un-Science in Medicine?

In perhaps one of the most remarkable documented cases of trying to manipulate an unscientific online opinion poll on an Australian newspaper website that I’ve heard of.

It seems that some supporters of the current campaign being conducted by the group so-called Friends of Science in Medicine (FSM) seem to have gone well out of their way to try to rort an unscientific online poll to their advantage.

Whilst the apparent leader of FSM (Prof John Dwyer) disavowed himself of such cheap tactics when the poll results and logs were put to him. It is kind of surprising that he did say that FSM were planning on using this unscientific online poll as part of their campaign. Science?
