When I said "I know about as much statistics as anyone", I meant that in the sense of "I know about as much statistics as the next person", i.e. not that much. And I never claimed to be a statistician. The figures I've mentioned here only relied on percentages and arithmetic anyway. And the difference between causality and correlation.

Why does it always have to be this way? Someone questions a 30% remission rate and suddenly you're an anti-psychiatry conspiracy theorist. And suddenly you have some agenda, and you're not really in search of truth, and you're dissembling yourself just to win an argument, etc.

Well, whatever... please can we argue the facts. I am as much in search of the truth as anyone else. I have my own 10+ year journey with depression and other issues, and the viewpoints I hold were formed out of this experience.

And even if I *were* and anti-psychiatry conspiracy theorist dissembling myself just to win an argument, then *still*, please argue the facts.
