    I was utterly taken aback but estactic to read this. I love the Science Based Medicine blog.. HH has not always been my favorite blogger compared to the other authors and has made some comments in the past that might, emphasis on might, be interpreted as showing me/cfs in a negative light.

    In the long run Science is supposed to be self correcting. So maybe this is a matter of better data coming in and changing an opinion. That's the mark of a good scientist. Go with the data!

    Caveat. I was so excited, I read the blog in haste. I really hope it holds up with a more thorough reading.

    Edit. I don't think it would be productive to bring up her past opinions as they lose significance when compared to her latest blog.

    This was mentioned in another thread, but I reckon it deserves its own!

    I'm less keen on Hall than their other writers, but this seemed okay (I've only read it quickly too - reaching my limits on PACE at the moment tbh). Good to have PACE criticisms getting wider coverage, and Science Based Medicine is exactly the sort of audience we want to be reaching.

    Should these threads be merged? I started wondering if there was another thread on second reading after I saw a certain member on PR wrote a comment. I won't say whose name without permission even though it's blatantly obvious. But you can't rule out a copycat! :thumbsup:

    What is the URL for the other thread? Thanks for the heads up!​

    Thank you to this Sawyerrr person for behaving rationally when confronted with evidence.
    Seems so rare when PACE is the topic.
