    I wrote about circles of reviewers, I am aware of citation circles too, but this one takes the cake. It seems you really can have your cake and eat it too if nobody is watching. My issue with EBM is essentially methodological. It fails when the methodology fails. Which is most of the time from what I can see, at least in the studies I have looked at. EBM, as currently practiced, is subject to huge bias. This is why I put more emphasis on EB practice, rather than EBM. EBM is failing, and few are asking the right questions.
