    As the ME world churns

    Thanks for the laughs and the great summary Cort. I needed a good belly laugh and this article of yours did the trick. (big grins)

    This is like reading a big "'cliffhanger" of a novel. Wish I could have been a little mouse :) in the room. Looking forward to the webinar.

    Thanks for the summary, Cort.

    Thanks Cort for trying to make sense of all this, even if it still doesn't really make sense. That is the best service Phoenix Rising provides.

    Yes, thanks so much Cort. Now I actually understand what happened at a science meeting which is an accomplishment for this artsy fartsy girl. (smile)

    Reading it so concisely makes it seem even more unbelievable. As Cort mentioned earlier, maybe we've failed to realise how close we may be to the edge of what's scientifically possible. It's easy to forget that we could still be limited by our current technology.

    That being said, it does seem strange that the little ol' WPI seemed to be able to produce such a confident paper for Science nearly 18 months ago.

    It is truly unbelievable that there is still no consensus just more division and controversy! This has been the unfortunate story of CFS/ME for decades.

    I'm going to put up the slides that Val provided - according to them the WPI walks away feeling pretty good actually.

    Yes, XMRV is a microcosm of CFS/ME isn't it over the years...
