    The link to Paypal doesn't work for me. When I click it I get an error:

    Maybe try a different browser or refresh the page. It's been working OK for me.

    Thanks for the link Cort. It's great to have anyone with influence step up for our cause! Hopefully it will encourage others to do the same.

    I have immense respect for both Cort and Dan. Both have killed themselves to work on behalf of us sick. It takes a huge amouunt of time, energy and effort to get these websites up and running. Then the constant issue of MONEY. Both sites need money to keep going so that they can help the ME/CFS sick and provide support and amazing information from many super smart members.

    Hit both sites and support both if you can with donations. These are my two favorite sites - really the only ME/CFS websites and forums that I go to since the rest are, well, not as robust as Dan's and Cort's sites.

    Great job to Dan for the videos and the cool stuff he has been doing.

    Great job to Cort for this site and his advocacy work - year in and year out.

    Thank you both - and big hugs to both of you guys. S.

    Thanks Muffin! Dan has an immense vision for the ME/CFS Community that I can only applaud (and sometimes just drop my jaw at). He is a big thinker; it's great to have him around and I hope we can work together in the future. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Quite agree Muffin - an amazing service for us all and I hope Cort allows himself time to heal. The PR pages make up the definitive ME/CFS for any serious Doctor.

    I joined that community last year, but immediately started getting porno PMs....(I just turned around and unjoined but hhinking back, I ought to have contacted the admin.) Has anyone else had this problem with Dan's site? :(

    Poor Dan! He has been battling ONE person who, for whatever reason, has made it his mission to spam that community. I think he's blocked him off pretty good now. We have had some similar (but less troublesome spammers). I'll bet its OK to go back into the water now. :)

    Talk about minions of satan! Spamming a group of desperately ill people?
    It's so absurd it would almost be funny. But it ain't!
    Thanks for the info, Cort.

    Its really weird...its one guy and just keeping him down took up quite a bit of Dan's limited time...Of all the things to have to worry about!

    An one point our registrations just exploded...finally we figured out they were mostly spammers coming from Pakistan and India. Now we check each one before we let them in...sigh....:rolleyes:
