    it just dawned on me that folks may want to send their own personal and private emails of thank you to dr. peterson...?

    i guess they could be send via his assistant trish. i did not ask her if this was okay, but i can't imagine that someone would get mad at a note of appreciation and thanks coming, right?

    her email is: tahoetrish _at_ aol.com

    You can only hypothesise to get at the scientific truth as long as that hypothesis is based on a physical or mathematically symbolic observation.XMRV has been detected in patients with autism.Blocking xpr-1 is a plausible parsimoneous hypothesis and would induce problems with formation of representations networks and circuits at a crucial time.Genuine researchers are seldom found on science blogs people pretending to be on the other hand are very common.Only a fraud would get the scientific process backwards!

    Good evening, all.

    I am a new member, here. Also stuck with CFS (from Canada).
    I might be repeating what has been said already (not enough energy to read all of the 12 pages that were posted), but Christopher Cairns in his CFS Patient Avocate blog mentions this (May 29th) :
    "De Meirleir and Peterson are traveling through Europe this month doing conferences on XMRV. They travel to Spain and Norway. Peterson has a continuing strong relation with WPI since retiring from the WPI directorship".

    He probably knows more than we know...

    From this blog about Dan Peterson's recent presentation in Madrid:
    "The reasons for leaving the WPI were more a personal decision in order to have more time for himself after 25 years of service. He seems to be having a nice rest and is very happy to have the time to go sailing again."
