Thank you. Only one of my comments made it through the New York Times spam filter (and it had a typo ). I have tweaked some of my comments (that were posted above at Post #58) in order to correct some of my pesky typos and to add a few more reference ideas for information that might be helpful to include in a comment (either for current or future articles). Feel free to use any of these comments in whole or part. The second comment is quite long because of all the references. You may need to pick and choose what you are able to fit into a comment box. Alternatively, you can split up the comment and try to submit multiple comments (this is why tag teaming comments with a buddy or two can be quite effective). Also, some sites might not publish the comment(s) if they think you are a "spammer". By submitting more than one comment or if you add links to a comment, their software might label you as a possible spammer. If this happens your comment could sit for awhile in moderation and either eventually get posted or just never show up. Each site is different, so what will make it through moderation and what will disappear into their trash bin is a bit of a guessing game. I wonder if patients (and our supporters) will be considered "spammers", if we try to sell the truth about this illness through the comment sections of online papers/journals or if this could be a great advocacy tool for a group of patient warriors? Here are the three comments that I have drafted. Perhaps others will add a few of their own suggestions? (1) (Note – References could be added to this comment to identify top physicians and scientists who are working to try to solve this illness, but they need help from both private donors and the government to fund these projects. Here are some examples of research projects/institutes that people might want to reference - Open Medicine Foundation (http://www.openmedicinefoundation.org/), Stanford (http://med.stanford.edu/chronicfatiguesyndrome/about/projects.html), Columbia (http://cii.columbia.edu/research.aspx?8Fo92f) and, Simmaron (http://simmaronresearch.com/research/). (Note - I have rec'd a comment from a Forum member (whose opinion I respect) that the word "exponentially" may not be very effective (regardless if it can be supported with facts) because it may not seem believable to the target audience. So, you may want to consider removing or modifying this word if you decide to use this comment.) (2) (3) (Note - The references to books written about the illness may not be something you want to include in a comment. These books may also be controversial to some in the ME/CFS Community, but I believe they both provide an interesting historical perspective (at least through the eyes of each author) to this illness. There may be other books that have been written, which might also be worth mentioning, but these are the two that I have read that set the stage for what was happening with this illness during different points in time.) *Edit - If you watch the videos that I have selected, I think you might understand how these short videos can express some of the information that we want people to hear in a much more effective way than only relying on written words.
