Tired of having your personality and sanity disparaged and called into question by the psych lobby/CBT/GET/advocates? Tired of bad science that states opinions about CFS/ME patients as though they were facts, without adequate documentation or support? Tired of having your relationship with your M.D. and health insurer interfered with? Tired of being labeled with a functional personality disorder, when in fact you are suffering from an organic disease? The scientific hell-hole I have described above is actionable in law. The individuals and organizations that foment them by publishing trash science can be sued for damages under a number of suitable legal theories. Folks have been suing for disparagement since somebody in old England ages ago said a competitor's beer tasted like horse urine. We never do sue because we are too tired, and don't have any spare money to spend on legal defense teams, etc. But, there are a lot of us. I do mean a lot of us. We have them outnumbered. Even ants can become a force in adequate numbers. PR could set up a meter on the site, with an initial legal team goal, say $250,000 or so. Payments via paypal could go directly into a CPA managed fund and we could watch the meter rise over time. Every time I read another infuriating article, I will go sell a some exercise equipment on Craigslist that I no longer use, and donate the proceeds to the War Fund. When it gets to a certain point, the trigger will be pulled, and someone gets sued for publishing junk that hurts CFS/ME patients. We are in a civilized world. When attacked and seriously provoked, we take it to court instead of finding other more drastic ways of retaliating. If nothing else, it would rob these psych weasels of that veneer of objectivity they try to project in the name of science. It is hard to sound unbiased and objective when you are complaining: " Those crazy !%$!!* actually sued me!" Cort could put up a sticky poll and publications/authors could be voted on as potential targets for legal action. Maybe this would have a "chilling effect" on the wholesale raft of CFS/ME psych studies we are dealing with. This would take these venomous tomes out of peer review, and into the courtroom, where they most likely belong. Alternatively, if it has not yet gotten to that point of frustration, we could give up, just keep the status quo and continue emailing agencies and folks that we think may be able to help us . . .
