Aside from the practical aspect that I am simply too sick to engage in another forum, my concern has been that having a group formed to be "against" something (whether the CDC, CAA, etc.) is not going to be as productive as a forum that is "for" something. Now, I'm being unfair here because I have not looked at the other forum but I guess my style is more aimed towards inclusion rather than exclusion. I do know however that social movements usually take a variety of tactics from conservative to radical to work.
However, what is conservative or radical is always relative. Currently patients are fighting for their rights, but these will not be achieved without tackling certain organisations. It is, after all, those organisations which are preventing research and treatment. It is all well and good to say you stand for something, you must define your position. But who are you talking to?
Simply, you must be against something if you want something.
