Losing it

Truth Seeker is getting wilder and wilder in his claims. While discussing the HPV vaccines, he posts this:

Its more like 20 deaths now bad commercial scientist,defender of iatrogenic death and junk science, unless proven otherwise i will assume occams razor.

Then to back this wild claim up, he posts this:

Across the clinical studies, 17 deaths were reported in 21,464 male and female subjects. The events reported were consistent with events expected in healthy adolescent and adult populations. The most common cause of death was motor vehicle accident (4 subjects who received GARDASIL and 3 placebo subjects), followed by overdose/suicide (1 subject who received GARDASIL and 2 subjects who received placebo), and pulmonary embolus/deep vein thrombosis (1 subject who received GARDASIL and 1 placebo subject). In addition, there were 2 cases of sepsis, 1 case of pancreatic cancer, and 1 case of arrhythmia in the group that received GARDASIL, and 1 case of asphyxia in the placebo group.

Posting data that shows the opposite of what the poster claims (hoping, presumably, that most people won't actually read it) seems to be becoming a more popular tactic among this lot.

You really are a tedious plonker, Becky.

Do he think people won't notice or is he just too clueless to realize that he fails to substantiate his position.
