    It's not a WPI leak in any way, shape or form. They simply posted the link to the press release from the Netherlands.

    maybe Ortho were told to hold the story until they're ready to comment of the published paper?

    Oh, I see.

    But it's still crazy that this happened a month ago and were just now hearing about it. If it is true then it's the final piece of this puzzle.

    Rumor or not....it's got me pretty excited.

    I was responsible for that CDC leak, inadvertently, but did not start the rumor or post the information to the forum, or encourage anyone to do so. Cort started that rumor after I mentioned the CDC study and pending press release to him and forgot to mention that it was confidential. Period. No conspiracy, just ordinary CFS brain fog. Apparently the CDC pulled the press release but the paper is still in press, or in some final holding point pending authorization of some type.

    WPI is just passing along what is becoming common knowledge, they are not the leak. But I expect they have known this for months and probably are just glad to see the information out there. They should be noting that this is still unofficial information.

    There are lots of things about the WPI which are kind of.. yeah.

    If their results get validated I couldn't care less though.

    LOL - I feel like I'd just calmed my XMRV obsession - "I'm finally getting numb to it" - now this thread. It reminded me of this strip:

    Ah right I see :) thanks for the correction, got a little confused by brain fog.
    I agree again with you again kurt hah, would be nice for them to state it isn't official, unless they have and my brain has completely forgot.

    The joys of brain fog.

    I was just about to fall asleep when i did a last scoop for news, so the brain isn't the best. I just looked at the PDF of the conference, did I not see it in print? 'we at NIH have confirmed the WPI findings'. Why then is it not 100%?

    I especially like the page where its shown how long it takes for some pathogens to be acted on. Seems he has a conscience he is prepared to act on.

    I knew there was a reason I liked CBS. Will you be doing a story on 60 Minutes?

    What a great picture. I couldn't resist and I figured that I wouldn't last long.

    You are arguing semantics. You and Cort together started that rumor here on this website. That is not the same thing as a news story published by a wire service. I don't get why you are using the rumor you helped to start as evidence that the wire service story might be untrustworthy.

    Love it. Alter (or whoever added the photos) had a sense of humor, perhaps a bit warped, but definitly funny.

    Woot? It is great for the results to be proven! I have been a sceptic but this seems pretty clear.

    Did they put it on the WPI site? I can't find it on there. Or are you just talking about the facebook status update?
