Something posted earlier set the cogs whirring in my mind about countering myths and bigotry and the like, and specifically I wondered whether it might be an idea to bring together all the various links we have to things which disprove classic myths as a sort of one-stop shop for truth.

Anyone think it might be an idea?

Bit of an older, and quite specific one, but you never know

Can anyone counter this "More Than 1000 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims" that Mailites' often refer to in their claims against global warming? It's an update of the old '700' list, so presumably the figure is an accumulative one, not necessarily representative of how many scientists currently dispute global warming.

It's odd that most of the Mailites' think that scientists know fuck-all about anything, but are quite happy to quote this list when it suits them.

A couple of things I like to post on un-moderated articles.

On PR promo pieces for men's magazines.
It seems a bit odd to see the newspaper that campaigns against sleaze running a PR piece promoting one of these "Lads' mags" that "treat all women like meat" (Mail, 7/5/10). After all, "The fantasies they peddle give young men a distorted and dangerous view of women" (Mail, 17/04/09), and they "should be moved to top shelf" (Mail, 29/10/09).

And on articles with surreptitiously obtained paparazzi photos.
1997 - Following a certain tragic event involving the paparazzi, a drunk driver, and a Fiat Uno: the DM and MoS declared that any use of paparazzi pictures will have to be cleared with the proprietor who, in turn, proclaimed that there would be a ban on "all intrusive pictures except where they are considered necessary".

Is this necessary?
Feel free to use these.
