I have posted an comment at
https://www.change.org/p/wikipedia-changing-wikipedia-s-article-on-homoeopathy/c/694128613

An update has been posted in a parallel thread. However, we need to know
that we might be aware of the Wikipedia issues but the 'common man' is
relatively ignorant. Irrespective of whether this man is taking sense, this
petition has garnered 4000 signatures and evidently those supporters too
are oblivious of how to edit Wikipedia. This increases our responsibility.

Just bear that in mind.

Pseudoscience is not about whether it works or not, it is about a
scientific approach to gathering evidences which may or may not suggest
that 'it works'. Homeopathy lacks such a scientific approach. The
supporters of this petition are therefore likely to be unaware of the
scientific approach. Like on Wikipedia, the onus of change lies on us.
