James C Coyne is an established, but renegade psychologist, who spends quite a lot of time criticising other psychological researchers for their lack of rigour, spin, etc. He has just co-written a paper debunking another study. The blog on it is here: Unfortunately this blog post is less accessible than many of his blog posts as quite a bit of it is somewhat statistically technical. But there might be the odd person who will find it of interest. I don't fully understand every step them did but did understand the gist of it. Unfortunately, I could imagine the type of problems isolated in the original research could occur in the ME/CFS field and they'd likely go unchallenged: very little challenging goes on in the ME/CFS except by amateurs (with whom researchers probably wouldn't share data).
