FishBarrel - a quackery reporting tool

With thousands of misleading health claims on the web and a report to the ASA taking around ten minutes, you likely come across misleading claims all the time but do nothing about them. FishBarrel is a plugin for Google Chrome that manages the process of making a complaint to a relevant authority so that it takes just a few seconds. FishBarrel also tracks all text complained about in a central database. When you turn on FishBarrel, any text complained about by other users is automatically highlighted. This helps you avoid time by submitting duplicate complaints. Finally, FishBarrel can automatically revisit the websites later and check if the claims have been removed. Watch the demo (full-screen is best), then download it for free below.

Fantastic extension. Makes the task of cleaning up the bullshit peddled by quacks that much easier.
