Wikipedia: Requests for arbitration/Pseudoscience

Wikipedia is capable of policing itself by way of basic rules and a hierarchy of editors. It is a tedious, time consuming process, but issues, complaints and suggestions can be brought to administrators and may eventually become arbitration cases. Particularly contentious relationships between editors may result in discipline and/or warnings which can have lasting effect. Policy and statements of intent may come form such cases, and while rule setting articles may be gradually altered by editors, arbitration decisions are more lasting. The problem is that arbitration pages are difficult to find and decisions are often lost do to their virtual invisibility.

This is the arbitration record concerning a 2009 Fringe Science decision.

Note that Editor ScienceApologist is now User: Joshua P. Schroeder and has been permanently blocked from editing Wikipedia. In all probability, he is now editing under a different name.
