The BCSE seeks to present itself as the voice of respectable academic scientists, and portrays its opponents as uncredentialed crackpots.
In reality, the BCSE are generally uncredentialed crackpots, and respectable academics wouldn't touch it with a barge-pole. The BCSE's website is full of bluff and nonsense. An incident in late 2006 involving Leeds University allowed this to be shown up. The same incident also showed up several other features of the BCSE's unpleasant mode of operation, particularly as the BCSE sought to bluff and tell outright lies about the situation afterwards. I have the documented evidence so that you can make your own mind up.
