    Cort, will this poll find its way to researchers? I really want them to know what our patient group responses are. I realize this won't count as a scientific study, but as a strong indicator for which way to go with the research, I feel it makes a very valuable contribution.

    I think this poll is very misleading. Category 1 patients, "CFS according to the Fukuda Definition (1994) but not the ICC for ME," are hardly represented. Most of them are probably too high-functioning to be part of this community.
