Some of us were expressing our want to send Dr Ian Lipkin expressions of our thanks and appreciation and think its best we do it by card (so not to flood his email with individual mails taking up his time and space in his email box etc). Im willing to set up a group one (thanks Frickly for telling me where to get these). Now I just want to know about what message to do on the card, as i was going to be the one setting it up (I assume the message i do may appear as like a main one?? or does it not??? I cant remember how these cards work. If my message comes up as like a main one which then everyone else adds individually too??? I need to get it so its suitable to nearly all. Does following sound okay to people if i set up a group card which had following message? "We all would like you to know how much we appreciate that you are doing research for us. Thank You for working to solve the ME and CFS puzzle" (I know some hate to see ME/CFS put into together in a shortening like as one word.. so thought maybe I should write them separately to please more people here??? to make it clear they are separate and to hopefully please all) anyway.. what would people think if i did that. would that be okay to most? Then I assume if its a card like Ive seen in the past everyone just adds their own thanks etc to it. ....................................... (the card isnt anything to do with if he should be doing the study exactly how he is doing them.. but rather that we do appreciate that he wishes to help us and is looking for things such as pathogens etc .. if anyone disagrees with anything in his studies.. please keep it to the other thread). Researchers looking for "real causes" of our disease, should be encouraged.
