The ongoing PR problem that is pissing me off

For the last two years I have been watching “skeptics” dissing skeptic organizations, calling for boycotts, and demanding resignations of the leaders of these organizations. As someone who cared deeply about the promotion of skepticism, and was willing to support organizations who had this mission, the ugliness has been very disheartening. Why? Because the people doing the dissing are people whom skeptics were too willing to encourage, by giving them a platform and applause, while being unwilling to seriously consider whether they deserved our support.
