Reading this isn't it a bit too negative? Surely the vast majority of the stuff Brian Dunning produces is Ok isn't it?--BobSpring is sprung! 07:02, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

I agree with Bob. This site has a lot of nerve calling itself the "Rational" anything with entries like this. Brian Dunning has done hundreds of podcasts on a variety of topics, and deserves better than to be referred to, first and foremost, as a "convicted fraudster." What a childish, completely IRrational entry. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs 07:32, 7 July 2013‎ (UTC)
I think its fine. Its reporting the facts, although a longer synopsis of his podcast might be in order. --NerdyWizard (talk) 15:58, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Is skeptoid positive or negative about pseudoscience etc?[edit]

Reaaing the sentence "Skeptoid covers a wide range of topics related to pseudoscientific and paranormal claims", i can't tell whether it means it means debunking them or promoting them. I assume it talks negatively, but as it's the first I'd head of Brian Dunnings I'm not really certain. The name 'skeptoid' lend itself to being negative, but it's not always obvious from a name.
