International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day is May 12: The World Will Know
Did you know that May 12 belongs to us? Lots of us are aware of this. We share the buzz on it amongst ourselves. We add blue ribbons to profile pictures. We raise our voices, join our hands, mount the few podiums available to us and tug at the sleeve of the rest of the world.
Discuss the article on the Forums.

    I just sent her a comment - focused entirely on her hostility - I wonder if she will post it. I questioned whether she used to experiment on live animals when she was little. I think she's got a real problem. I would never hire anyone like that.

    To clarify my point: I'm not saying that actually debating the science with her is going anywhere (the other readers/posters/cohort of imaginary friends seem to know nothing and contribute nothing on the science, presumably because they know nothing about it by definition, given that they're there in the first place). I'm just saying that one or two highly selective and high quality science-based rebuttals go a long way to making the whole page more helpful to us in the eyes of anyone who stumbles across it. Arguments, insults and complaining about her unpleasant nature does us no favours because she just thrives on that and ends up painting us in a bad light. It's important that a good quality scientific counter position is presented on threads like these (there normally is at least one, from what I've seen), for the neutrals and uninformed who stumble across these pages; her google ratings do seem to be pretty high...:(

    Ok Mark, you are right there, point taken.

    On the other hand, since she is moderating posts now....

    Has anyone thought to complain to her blog bosses? I came across a different article from that same network -- it was actually a good one.

    Here they are: http://seedmediagroup.com/

    Write to them here: editorial@scienceblogs.com

    Their little write up about how they pick their bloggers:

    However, she's gotten a lot of comments and page hits off of XMRV/CFS so they might not care.

    Complaints have been sent to the Legal Counsel Department of ERV's university rather than the blog network.
