I see your point, lilly. The main issue I have is with the hierarchy in the listing and the labeling of the various treatments. If it says "highly ineffective" that's a huge blow to all those people including myself who spend so much time posting *successful* alternative remedies to acne.
A person clueless about acne who first stumbles upon this site will look at the treatments and of course pick the ones labeled as most effective, sometimes without considering the alternatives.
And this is a bad thing?!
IMO even though accutane hasn't worked so great for me at least there is actual scientific evidence showing the benefits of traditional prescription medications / treatments. Plus lots of feedback from people who post reviews.
It seems to me the problem with 'alternative' and 'natural' options is the lack of evidence that they actually work. Plus the limited feedback available.
Although I do agree this site does push "The Regimen" very hard as 'best' treatment. This is a free forum/service which is great. But as such users keep their eyes open to the fact that the price they are paying is the heavy marketing of the site owners products.
