International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Anyone received an answer from TED/X or TED if they complained?

    I watched the talk and found it quite bizarre but I didn't think it was too threatening (as a result of its bizarre-ness mostly). I thought it was quite muddled and the message/story wasn't particularly clear.

    Jen Brea's talk was amazingly concise, clear and so genuine by contrast. A friend of mine texted me the other day to say that Jen's TED talk had just popped up on her instagram feed, she had watched it and said that it really helped her to understand the illness and what it must be like for me. So I am hopeful that the right message is getting through!

    Is there any evidence for this having happened?

    I have the legal evidence, yes. It is a quite well known case in 'certain quarters'.

    I had this speech on my Yahoo account, but it's been deleted and I've been sent a warning for breach of copyright.

    The university cleansing department must be fully operational.

    If there is actionable evidence then action should be taken. The evidence would need to be quite strong, and preferably multiple similar instances. Look what happened to Hollywood child molesters, first it was nobody would believe them then nobody wanted to give up the advantage of favors the abusers could confer then finally everyone metaphorically looked at each other and said ‘wait a minute, what are we all afraid of?’

    Yes, I still have access to one, but it's no longer up on Yahoo.
