Dangers of research into chronic fatigue syndrome

"a small group of individuals. Some of their arguments are sound, but the tone, the errors and the overall message have caused a lot of damage. They influenced other patients and unless you have the determination to respond to the every attack, the people reading the internet 'nasties' are simply not aware that they have been misled."

Ellen Goudsmit makes a good point -- those of you who are inclined to write over-the-top, emotional responses do damage to The Cause.  That sort of thing adds to the notion that we're just a bunch of hysterical women with mental problems rather than a physical ailment.
As grandma always told you, "if you can't say something nice, say nothing at all".
