Note: Cathey Annette Baker, owner of a hair removal forum called Kitty’s Consumer Beware, died in 2009, and the forum went down soon after. I was a prominent critic of the forum for their promotion of doubtful hair removal products and services. The information below is an archive.
“Kitty’s Consumer Beware” is a thinly-veiled commercial site masquerading as an unbiased consumer site on hair removal.

Censorship at “Kitty’s Consumer Beware”
You can also warn other consumers about scams, rip-offs and just complain in general! Kitty invites all commercial/personal use hair removal product/equipment consumers, all product/equipment manufacturers, as well as all methodology practitioners, to participate. You are not only welcome, you are encouraged.
Up to a point, that is. Try mentioning data on www.hairfacts.com on their message boards, and you’ll see. Because this site is critical of GHR and of those who promote it like Judith Stephens and “Katherine Cook” Despite their claims that their information is unbiased
I am happy to put a link to any hair removal site and analyze its claims. That’s because I’m not afraid I don’t pick and choose
Throughout hairfacts.com, you’ll links to sites containing claims I believe are false.

What’s in a name?
Consumers have written to me suggesting that “Katherine Cook” and the nickname “Kitty” are assumed names being used by GHR salespeople on “Kitty’s Consumer Beware.” Given Judith Stephens’ use of assumed names, this suggestion is worth examining.
Names associated with the Consumer Beware include:
Are they three different people? Are they two different people? Are they all the same person?
