Anyone received an answer from TED/X or TED if they complained?
NEWS: Esther Crawley sued in class-action for endagering the lives of ME-patients!
I watched the talk and found it quite bizarre but I didn't think it was too threatening (as a result of its bizarre-ness mostly). I thought it was quite muddled and the message/story wasn't particularly clear.
Jen Brea's talk was amazingly concise, clear and so genuine by contrast. A friend of mine texted me the other day to say that Jen's TED talk had just popped up on her instagram feed, she had watched it and said that it really helped her to understand the illness and what it must be like for me. So I am hopeful that the right message is getting through!
Is there any evidence for this having happened?
You had me rickrolled there! In all seriousness legal action against a specific individual is probably not the way to go at this stage - the myth of the militant patient and all that. The BPS lobby would be all over it: "You see, they've got it in for us!!"
I have the legal evidence, yes. It is a quite well known case in 'certain quarters'.
I had this speech on my Yahoo account, but it's been deleted and I've been sent a warning for breach of copyright.
The university cleansing department must be fully operational.
If there is actionable evidence then action should be taken. The evidence would need to be quite strong, and preferably multiple similar instances. Look what happened to Hollywood child molesters, first it was nobody would believe them then nobody wanted to give up the advantage of favors the abusers could confer then finally everyone metaphorically looked at each other and said ‘wait a minute, what are we all afraid of?’
Someone must’ve downloaded a copy.
Yes, I still have access to one, but it's no longer up on Yahoo.
Open letter to TEDxBristol regarding Esther Crawley's presentation on 2 November 2017
by Carly Maryhew
Great open letter that requests that the entire video not be posted by TEDxBristol, either on its own site or on YouTube (methodological flaws, use of the fake Sunday Times threat letter...)
This letter is amazing. Much gratitude to the person who used up precious energy to write it. Really well done.

Can't have the truth coming out, can we?
