I would have created two physician forums: D.O. and M.D. Perhaps out of date adjectives should remain in the vocabulary of quacks.
But, maybe now, the term quack is also "politically incorrect."
To be fair, mainstream medicine in 1810 was super duper quackery and honestly more harmful than homeopathy. Placebo effect + harmless water >>>>>> dangerous chemicals/bleeding/leeches. I mean really if it were 1810 you'd see me at the homeopaths doorstep too.
