    A recent comment article in Nature (probably paywalled, unfortunately) by climate scientist Chris Rapley made some points that struck me as relevant to the issue of how CFS researchers and patients interact.

    First, I loved this quote, which is so true of anyone I disagree with:
    Second, he made some interesting suggestions on how scientists should behave following the 'Climategate' scandal that might profitably be applied to how CFS (or any other) scientists behave:
    note that I simply think these ideas are relevant to CFS, I'm not trying to draw any parallel between the state of science re climate change and CFS.
