I'll repeat what I said on the other thread in Action Alerts - please sign with a comment about why this press release is damaging to the progress of the science on ME/CFS. You don't need to have your own mind made up one way or the other about XMRV - but sign the petition if you think the emerging science should be communicated to the public in an accurate and responsible way.
I wish! When I checked just now there were only 227 signatures. Sometimes petitions are so poorly written that I'm embarrassed to sign them, but this one is really well done. Does anyone know who wrote it? Thanks VillageLife, for publicizing it.
This is a really important petition. If people do not sign, many of us will face doctors in the new year who will have closed off their minds to the possibility of XMRV involvement. The press release was a publicity stunt with deep, harmful impact on future interest, funding and support.
