Is MeFi officially pro-pseudoscience?

In a recent Ask thread, one commenter suggested Reiki healing as a treatment for labor pains. I gave a neutrally-worded comment with links to meta-analyses which showed that Reiki healing has no measurable effect on any illness. This comment was deleted, though the original comment stands. The only conclusion I can draw from this is that it is officially ok to endorse Reiki healing, but not to point out that it is rejected by the scientific and medical communities, because that would be a 'derail'. Do I have that right?

Dear AskMe

Dear Askme, where can I get crystals to channel my energy flow and make me a better person? Free or cheap, please. (MI)
