Buried it deeper? They gave a history of his work which lead up to his latest work which they called his biggest challenge or whatever.,..how is that burying? You are looking at this through very dark glasses. They've just given you evidence that maybe the best pathogen hunter in the world is studying a virus in CFS - and you're disappointed? Should they ignore the negative findings - not mention them? That's not what newspapers do. By the way, I interpreted Dr. Lipkin's statement "we have to keep an open mind about this' in a positive light - as in after all the negative studies we have to 'keep an open mind'. Dr. Vernon told me that Dr Lipkin has long believed CFS is caused by a virus and he's working with Dr. Montoya - one of our greatest supporters - to find viruses in CFS - and now some people are waiting for him to 'sweep XMRV under the table'!!!!! Arrgghhhh I don't even know why that is considered a valid interpretation. Why not use the interpretation "oh good - they've given XMRV to someone's who's proved his ability to find hard to find viruses again and again plus he's working with one of the few researchers in the world who believes herpesviruses play a role in CFS - we can finally rest easy..". That is an equally valid interpretation of the events...but it does not seem to have taken hold .....' I do get that there's no resting easy until XMRV is finally validated....but some at easeness could accrue from taking the above interpretation.
