"Both US breast implant makers, Inamed and Mentor, have now received 'approvable' letters from the FDA for their silicone gel implants. We've been hearing from scores and scores of women already ill & injured from previous versions of new & improved breast implants. The FDA is ignoring their own scientists and yielding once again to industry propaganda and pressure. The so-called 'conditions' that are required are expensive and totally unenforceable, such as MRI's to detect rupture costing up to ,000."

     ... medicine . consumer advocacy ...
"DORway consists of around 800 WEB pages (approximately 12,000 printed pages) of solid time-tested documentation that aspartame is neither a decent diet aid... nor was it ever proven to be safe! It must be removed from the human food chain, but only YOU AND I, the consumers, can effect its removal."

"This website is an independent rebuttal to the hysterical pseudo-science and conspiracy mongering that propagates across the Internet concerning aspartame. My name is Matt Lowry, and my brother, Dr. Mark Lowry (who is a practicing pediatrician), and I performed independent research on this topic for about two years. After all of our research, here is our conclusion: aspartame does NOT kill, but try telling that to the hysterical and paranoid conspiracy mongers on the Internet."

cranky Languatron's Fun House 2004 Apr 06
     ... consumer advocacy ...
"Are you fed up with the way Universal Studios trashes dreams? How about the way they do business in general? It has been said that a 50 car pile-up is more organized than the way Universal Studios conducts business. This web page is dedicated to fans of Battlestar Galactica who are fed up with the way Universal Studios has mismanaged this property. It is also dedicated to DVD lovers outraged at the poor quality of the DVD releases 'Back To The Future' and 'Life of Brian', as well as those who learned the hard way that 'Cat In The Hat' was really not meant for a children's audience at all, but rather daddy and his drinking buddies."

"If you don't question whether aspartame is a serious threat to the population's health and well being, why are you here? Dr. Michael Freidman, former acting head of the FDA who just accepted a position with Monsanto. I wonder how many new toxins he can get approved in his new position? ... Robert Shapiro's NutraSweet® killed my mother and has killed and/or wounded millions of innocent people in the US and abroad."

"Welcome to New Zealand and Australia's unofficial anti-SUV (4X4) campaign, dedicated to halting the latest trend in consumer insanity: driving four wheel drive light trucks (urban assault vehicles) about our city streets. It is time for the majority of us, who choose more sensible modes of transport, to halt the race into bigger and meaner vehicles."

"The roots of Support Coalition International go deeply into the psychiatric survivors' liberation movement itself, which came directly out of civil rights ferment of the late 1960's and early 1970's. The description 'psychiatric survivors' is used by individuals who identify themselves as having experienced human rights violations in the mental health system. In the past 30 years, many grassroots groups working for those labeled with mental disabilities sprang up nationally and internationally. However, since the mid-1980's many of these groups became primarily federal or state funded, and therefore their independent human rights political activity is limited."

crankier Pork in My Vegetarian Soup 2003 Mar 10
     ... consumer advocacy ...
"In the past Whole Foods has been a place I have used in the capacity of lecture space, training ground ( for clients, ) and where I have done my primary food shopping. I experienced an incident on October 19th, 2000 at the Philadelphia Center-City branch of Whole Foods/Fresh Fields. ... Found a piece of pork in a vegetarian labeled soup ... Experienced very poor follow-up service ... Experienced frustration, and negligence at the upper levels of the company ... I was invited by Mr. Gold, at my expense, to come to Maryland, speak my story, and deliver my proposal. The date was April 2, 2001. I flew to Maryland, delivered a competent and clear critique of the incident which occured on October 19, 2000, and then I gave 4 different scenarios on possible solutions to the problems. The meeting was hailed as an 'eye opener' by the attendees and we were told this was an important issue and we would hear from them soon. ... Since our meeting in April I have heard from neither Mr. Danick nor Mr. Gold."

     ... consumer advocacy . politics . megalomaniacs ...
"This is no ordinary propaganda. This is propaganda about an extraordinary organization. Since it's conception, a pervasive clutch has reigned over humanity. That crutch is television. Granted television has some positive qualities, however, we feel the disadvantages far outweigh the advantages. Television has atrophied minds again and again. Our society's Television defames the existence of humanity. Television is a brutal breeding ground for powerful elitists, the government and corporations, to annihilate art and to dominate your life, Television imprisons the mind, decimating self-autonomy."

"The site to ridicule, expose, and uncool SUVs until we're rid of them! One thing leads to another ... Take a step back and look at how the SUV plays a role in messing things up. Do you want to make the world a better place? Ask people to stop buying SUVs. .... Aftermath of a rollover ... Commercial vs. consumer ... Photos of empty back spaces ... Who goes offroad? ...

"This site exists to provide factual information for prospective and current MLM distributors. This includes Amway, and now Quixtar among others. People deserve a chance to get all the facts before they spend their time and their money. Amway and Quixtar, and their IBOs are all out there telling prospects the information they want them to have. I am one person trying to get them the rest of the story. Do I present accurate information? Yes, to the very best of my ability. Do I check and double check sources? Yes -- or if not, I let you know the source is unverified. Is it always timely? No, because I'm just one person and this is a spare-time effort. Do I make corrections if I find errors? Absolutely. Will I tell you Amway's (or Quixtar's, Excel's, or Trek Alliance's) side of the story? No. Why should I? They've got their own sites."
