Stuff I've done on Wikipedia
- I am proud to have almost single-handedly rid Wikipedia of (at last count) twenty-two badly-written, repetitive and poorly-sourced articles on Neuro-linguistic programming, which is frankly a load of old tosh.
- I have worked long and hard for a bit of balance in articles on the psychology of religious belief, occasionally referred to as neurotheology by crackpot proponents of stupid "brain stimulation" twaddle like the God helmet.
- The article on British Conservative MP Philip Davies is largely my work. I am one of his former constituents. People complain that the WP article on him is overly-negative, but I disagree, vehemently.
- Removed some nonsense articles on fringe-like areas of psychology.
