I know, it's so frustrating. Sometimes, I fantasise: --- fantasy fades...... Well, it makes me feel better. The whole of idea of scientific publication is built around Peer Review, where your work is scrutinised by your peers before it is accepted for publication. In many fields this can be a bloody process, with researchers trying to undermine their rival's papers with hostile reviews. But the results is fierce scrutiny and better quality work. In the field of ME/CFS, peer review seems to be no more than a slap on the back from your mates. The reality is that nothing will change and research like this will continue to be published. It makes me want to weep.
