Consumer Protection: Skeptics take on the marketers

  • No location was chosen

  • BS claims are one of the most energizing parts of traditional skepticism. "That Powerband is clearly ridiculous! We can test that! Let's get 'em!" And, it's among the more longstanding forms of skeptical activism (even if those consumer advocates doing the testing didn't self-define as 'skeptics'). A bit of a look at the history of consumer advocacy, the 'unsinkable rubber ducks' of marketing, and the current state of ridiculous claims selling for lots and lots of money.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
