Re: New XMRV Studies Bring Closure—and Fresh Dispute

Spanky: a) It seems to me that some posts appear to be using the "XMRV" debate as a tool to attack clinicians or researchers who were trying to help patients, and those posters are not really interested in whether the retrovirus link played out or not. Hence the red herring remark. I find it curious...

Re: New XMRV Studies Bring Closure—and Fresh Dispute

"XMRV misinformation is repeated across the Internet..." Glad to see the tradition apparently continues here unabated.

"Things have changed..." Or at least they are starting to. Well done Pittsburgh.

Re: New XMRV Studies Bring Closure—and Fresh Dispute

Now I've made you cross and you're growing petulant. I am sorry. You're also leaping all over the place with inferences, and that was certainly not my intent. I was just trying to point out that sometimes, in this unfortunate Lyme landscape we find ourselves in, that it would be prudent to read betw...

Re: New XMRV Studies Bring Closure—and Fresh Dispute

Spanky: "And this is a psychology that tends to dominate in Lymeland...the desire to believe in what one wants the outcome to be." I suppose there may be some truth in that claim, but I am reluctant to broadly apply your observation to ALL IDSA members. And you hold on tight to your Tolstoy-like dev...

Re: New XMRV Studies Bring Closure—and Fresh Dispute

I am impressed with how someone can post snippets of blogs and such to support the position that thinking outside the box is bad, at least as that would relate to Lyme. Being inept with computer stuff, I cannot respond in kind. I am sorry. The best I can muster is maybe a TV example of how stuck-in-...

Re: New XMRV Studies Bring Closure—and Fresh Dispute

Spanky, your insights just get curiouser and curiouser. Why is it I am getting the impression you equate thinking outside the box as a bad thing? Progress seldom presents with a package slip in a fed ex box.
