Hmm, what to say about the AVN’s latest rant against the HCCC except to say that the descriptions fit the AVN much better than they do the HCCC, for example:
- “They have made themselves into a laughing stock”, like losing fights with Fair Trading, The Health Care Complaints Commission, the Office of Liquor and Gaming, the “No Jab No Play” legislation, …
“nobody can have faith in any statements made by this body when they continue to rely upon verifiably incorrect and biased information”, like the list of cherry picked vaccine/autism studies as debunked here
- “they also refused to answer questions…”, like
Despite claims of the AVSN being an open book, the financial details remain something of a mystery. Why are your computing costs so high, for example—it looks like you are purchasing new computers every year, which seems excessive, along with your web hosting—and I deal routinely with these costs in my job. Also, were the professional fees for accounting, for lawyers, or some combination thereof?
Unlike Stop the AVN, I can’t see any money being spent directly on helping parents. Can you outline on which items in your budget the donations were put to, exactly?

I will not enter into any discussion with you regarding any deeper aspects of our financial affairs.
