Yeah, thanks for posting. So it seems XMRV positive men can look forward to prostate biopsies or massages.

This definitely sounds less and less like an innocent virus.

We are excited by the idea that XMRV may infect the human population and it may be something important.
I guess I understand what he means, but I am not sure I am excited XMRV is at large :D

Excited is good. Excited is what we want. That means more and more researchers chasing the gold ring of making important new discoveries. Remember that understanding XMRV better could cause the door to swing open on other previously ill-understood diseases.
