    Babelfish translation:

    Yes, well, that's clear then. :worried:

    ETA I'm coming away with the feeling that they are not banning us now but someone on facebook thought that they were.

    Finally - can use google translate. Here it is.

    Guess not, but more press is not a bad thing.

    On the CFIDS association facebook page they say they are banning donations. We need a translating brain I think

    It would be a huge coup if the Dutch do definitively defer people with ME. Along with the UK, a country that claims XMRV isn't prevalent in their boarders.

    Bla bla bla bla. Bottom line is they say there is not enough scientific evidence to change their policy.

    All the translation softwear translations say no ban when read carefully. Even the one Bullybeef quotes goes on to say no ban after saying Reuters said there was a ban. It's kinda scary to think that Reuters might rely on translation softwear!!!

    ETA: Thanks Lansbergen, that's what I thought they were saying!

    Thanks for clearing this up, Maarten. We could do with letting the ESME know, it's on their Facebook page.
