About your Editorial on John Maddox prize

Dear Sir/Madam,

I'm shocked after I read through your editorial article about the John Maddox price award this year. I believe that you have given a totally wrong picture of Mr. Fang based on the makeup facts, and your article had caused an unwanted damage on Mr. Xiao Chuanguo.

First, please allow me to give a few my view-point of Mr. Fang based on my observation of the facts.

1. Mr. Fang's wife Mrs. Liu Juhua is a Senior journalist of the most powerful CCP news agency of China, the Xinhua News Agency.

2. Mrs. Liu Juhua's thesis on master degree has been reported by 240 scholars as 92% plagiarized article.

3. When Mrs. Liu Juhua's thesis scandal broke out, Mr. Fang threaten to revenge on anyone who dear to recall his wife's degree.

4. In 2011, Mr. Fang launch a series of defamation attacks on various well-known freedom and democracy fighters, including well-known law professor He Weifang(http://weibo.com/weifanghe), well-known freedom fighter and independent election campaigner Li Chengpeng(http://weibo.com/lichengpeng), well-known human right activist professor Yu Jianrong(http://weibo.com/yujianrong). This year he launch another defamation attack on another best know writer and freedom fighter Mr. Han han(http://weibo.com/hanhan).

5. According to the well-known professor Zhang ming(http://t.163.com/zmbaohu), the member of Politburo Standing Committee, Mr. Li Changchun, in one of his speech at Renmin University,openly appreciated Mr. Fang's help to the CCP(为党分忧 is the word used by Mr. Li Changchun).

6. Mr. Fang is operating an unregistered donation fund. It was reported to police by Mr. Luo(http://weibo.com/laoluoyonghao) half years ago, police so far not investigate, not even filing the case.

7. When Mr. Sun, who donate 50,000 to the fund(by far the largest donator at that time ), make public call on Mr. Fang disclose the usage of the fund, Mr. Fang launched a furious personal attack on the Mr. Sun.

8. New Threads does not allow posting information that Mr. Fang disagree. In the past he will personal review and revise every article before posting

9. Mr. Fang block anyone who try to state counter information in his micro-blog.

As you can see, Mr. Fang is in no mean a horned science police, neither he is nobody who try to "smacking down powerful or popular scientists". He did not imposes transparency on an opaque system, in fact he just created his own opaque system.

I can understand that you don't know all these, but your words on Mr. Xiao, the urologist, are totally unacceptable. Please allow me again tell you what I know about this particular case

1. First of all, it is not that Mr. Xiao revenges on Mr. Fang's challenged. It is another way around, Mr. Fang revenge on Mr Xiao disclosure of Mr. Fang misappropriate someone else work 11 years ago. Mr. Xiao did that in anonymous, however 5 years later Mr. Fang found out Mr. Xiao was the person behind that disclosure. Then he launched his well-know defamation tactic on Mr. Xiao.

2. Mr. Xiao is not a "bogus medicines and medical procedures carried out without clinical evidence"(I believe the wordings are coming from the person who recommended Mr. Fang to you). He has received US gov funding for his research, his achievement has been reported by CNN Science and Technology. Many US colleagues view him as heavy weight Nobel price contender, because of his break through theory and surgery evident of proving his theory.

3. Mr. Fang knows nothing about Mr. Xiao's theory, but he is very good on defamation tactic. In 2006 Court of Wuhan had been delivered a ruling that Mr. Fang must stop defamation on Xiao and punished Mr. Fang 30,000 RMB. Not only Mr. Fang refused to stop, but also refused to pay the fine. Even worse he put the judge's name on his New Threads web site to humiliating the judge.

4. Some parents of the patients have hinted that Mr. Fang and his lawyer try to bribe them 50,000 RMB for not standing up to support Mr. Xiao.

5. Mr. Xiao, insists that he did not hired anyone to attack Mr. Fang. Please notice that police had launched large scale investigation but find no evident that Mr. Xiao hired the attackers. As matter of fact, the court ruling did not mention a word about hiring attackers. So your words of "thugs hired by a urologist attacked Fang with a hammer" is outright unfounded.

As the time of writing, your article has been translated and used by Mr. Fang and his friends to launch another round of attack on Mr. Xiao(Read this yourself [s3.t.itc.cn]). To preventing the damage extended, I kindly ask you to reevaluate your price reward ASAP. And I hope you will recall the price awarded or at least recall the misrepresenting editorial article ASAP.

FYI, I cc to both Mr. Xiao Chuanguo, please talk to him for fact finding.

Best Regards
Jianmang Li

Hi Peter,

I noticed the 7 days no action phrase, so I wait for 11 days.

The one who recommended Mr Fang to receive the Award is a friend of Mr.Fang. He wrote in microblog that Nature has received complains. However he told Nature we are a bunch of junks and scientific idiots. He also hinted that Nature will never take us seriously. When you are not responding, I have reason to worry that what he was bluffing might be true.

Just give you some evident that we are not junks or at least I'm not a junk. I'm Dutch citizen. A nuclear scientist turn businessman. I had been recruited by USTC (the same university where Mr Fang graduated) 35 years ago while I was only 13 year old. I was national figure by that time, still a lot of Chinese remember me. I studied theoretical physics and 13 years of nuclear reseach experience, so I don't think I should be called science idiot.

I do not agree that Mr. Fang is protecting science, he is abusing science to create hype and take advantage of general ignorance of the audients to create his magical game. One person who had been hurt badly is Mr. Xiao, the one that your article attacked.

BTW, I has never been attacked by Mr. Fang. My reason of standup against him is just because I know science and I can tell he is attack people with no justification.

Best regards

Yes, we understood each other. I was irritated by the properganda campaign initiated by Mr. Fang's friend. But I'm calm down now.

Peter,

Mr Fang has put up the following image (http://s1.t.itc.cn/mblog/pic/201211_29_8/m_19583948184665307.jpg) in his blog, and said "我的照片上了上期(11月16日)美国《科学》(Science)。这是我第五次被《科学》报道()。"(translation: my picture has been shown in last edition (Nov 16) US “Science”, this is the fifth times that <Science> reported me".

The article shown in the image copied the text of Nature article, so the damage is spreading. Mr. Fang knows that the "hired attacked" was not agreed by court, but he use it anyway because it was Nature said it.


Best regards
