This could work if we had a clear set of goals stated at the website so that participation was a buy in or don't come arrangement. Otherwise we will be forever arguing about, for example, who gets to call what set of symptoms ME. IMO, these kinds of arguments are seriously fracturing our voice, so as SpecialK82 said, we would have to find a message/position for this proposed website that won't include arguing. I'm not sure we can achieve that. But if we don't find that message/position that 80% of us agree with, the proposed website will just be anothaer one of many ME/CFS advocacy sites. Perhaps we can start a new thread proposing some platform points, discuss it for a month or so and then put it up as a poll to see if we have at least 80% agreement here. Maybe after that we could run it by the main advocacy groups to see if we can get 80% agreement. Does anybody want to start with a couple of issue positions that most of us will probably agree to?
