What a quack! Still pushing the gateway theory. I wonder what we could do to get fornits.COM to come up on a google search of his name?

Looks to me like he must have been at SLS Health. There are some older threads here on this site about him.

That leads to the googling of Shawn Prichard and SLS, which tells the tale of the tape.

To me, it looks like he is doing some active reputation defense by propping up a bunch of blogs and a fornits one-off site, as there is a plethora of bad news about SLS and his tenure all over the google when you use the correct terms.
