    I posted a comment but it needs to be screened first. Hopefully they will fix the typo.

    As I am sure regular posters to PR know, you rely should not really on a smell checker, you need to proofread your work properly. It really does save a lot of grief.

    Murphy's Law?

    They have a chat feature but there's no one there right now. I sent them an email.

    It is a publication from India.

    I have tweeted their article title was wrong and also alerted dr Hanson on twitter.

    Be careful if visiting their "contact us" page - it tries to automatically download a file - probably harmless, but I'm not sure.

    This is their email address, in case anyone wants to send them an email: feedback@business-standard.com

    It's also Saturday so we'll probably have to wait until Monday for any responses.

    The title may now be correct. But, had it been "corrected", it would now read: "Study offers evidence that CFS is not a psychological illness". Instead, the new title is: "Gut bacteria are different in people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" -- definitely not as powerful a headline as the former. Makes me wonder what their motivation/direction was in doing so.

    I could have sworn when I looked at it a few hours ago it said exactly that... counter lobbying or am I going mad? o_O

    @Old Bones @ryan31337

    You are right Ryan. It did say exactly that. "Study offers evidence that CFS is not a psychological illness".

    Looks like they've changed it again. Being in India, perhaps they wanted to avoid any further confusion.
