On one hand, I truly believe that homeopathy doesn't work. Period.
But I also support the use of the placebo effect to address minor problems. All drugs carry a risk associated with them, and if we can cure your mild headache with a pill that does nothing, that beats curing a mild headache with a molecule that may have side-effects.
The problem is that placebos only work if you believe in them. And they work better if they are expensive. And to have people make money out of ignorance makes me cringe.
So I choose to support ending the whole homeopathy deal. But I would be looking into other, ethically reasonable ways to make use of that effect by modern medicine.

Now it is only a matter of getting the carriers to actually use this list to deny service. In most SGSN, all it takes is changing a config flag.
Yes, that hard!
