    I think everyone should pay some attention to her first tweet though, that the issues we face are so much bigger than any one (or three, or five) researcher.

    When these researchers act the way they do and make the claims they do, it isn't them that's the problem. It's the broader scientific and medical community, and society that's allowing it. In order to make change we need to change minds, raise awareness, and spread ideas, not focus on particular people.

    I don't think criticising specific researchers generally achieves much. These tweets from Jennifer Brea set a good model for how to address some of the researchers in CFS, if you need to. Much of the attention directed towards specific researchers of CFS is much too aggressive, personal and borderline obsessive.

    @arboretum and @Misfit Toy , I agree so much with you both. Thank you and thanks to Jen Brea, you are able to raise the level of argument, something I'm afraid Mrs Crawley don't even know a clue of what it means...
