I listened to a new article describing the efforts of the organiser of the Expo Rick Thiessen. Thiessen is the guy who finally dropped the hammer on this goofball's attendance. Thiessen, when he organised the event, only contacted health and wellness websites, and let them select their participation. As a staff of one, he based all his decisions on what was on the website. He was horrified when he learned who was presenting, and immediately dropped him.

The end result is that this expo may not go on. Enough advertisers have dropped their support, even with the cancellation of the goofball's participation. I think Thiessen is guilty of not doing his homework, and had no nefarious intent in allowing this guy to participate.

A surface scratch on a website does not equal due diligence in my mind.
