What happened is a student dared to criticise him on his blog and referred to Christopher Maloney as being a quack. Rather than ignore it as most people would do, or dispute it in the comments as many others would do, Christopher Maloney and his friend Andreas Moritz (a cancer quack) instead went to wordpress (the hosts of this blog) and threatened them with legal action if they didn’t completely shut down the blog in question.
Unfortunately, wordpress complied. Their actions are very wrong, Christopher Maloney and Andrew Moritz had no legal standing to make such claims or demands and wordpress had no obligation to respond in any way shape or form. They did the worst thing they could. There is good news though. It seems people discovered what has happened and instead of Maloney and Moritz continuing to be able to practice their quackery in peace, word has gotten out and there is now a large Streisand Effect response happening, with this story being spread far and wide amongst thousands of people globally.
Maloney still hasn’t learnt, and rather than arguing his case for not being a quack he’s twisting and warping everything being said to make it look like he is being persecuted. He used to have a video up which, in his own (paraphrased) words he added a picture of the Eiffel Tower to the front of as well as flame effects “to get and keep your attention”. NaeHutch decided to take this video and make some minor changes to the audio. Christopher Maloney instead responded by saying she is threatening him endorsing violence and setting him alight. In a matter of days he managed to forget it was Chris himself that added those flame effects, not NaeHutch.
If you go through the hundreds of comments at Pharyngula you can see many MANY more cases of him twisting reality to falsly try to claim physical threats and other such acts which, quite simply, have not been even remotely close to being made. The posts on him can be found here, here, here, here and here. Search the comments for replies by “Quackalicious”
Christopher Maloney really doesn’t seem to have a firm grip of reality at all going by what is observed of him, and I’m not just talking about the lack of reality when it comes to his “medical practice”.
