Great, thanks for posting this V.  I thought Gerwyn was having people edit his paper before it went out.  I'd gladly help out with that if needed.  I think it would look more professional with periods at the end of paragraphs for instance.

I am very glad that Gerwyn is writing these rebuttals for all of us.  Thank you Gerwyn.   :-*

Yes Ger, please, give us a chance to clean these things up before you post. We want you to have all the credibility you deserve. Spelling and grammar mistakes can get in the way of that, as can sub-optimal referencing.

Thanks for all the work you are doing on this!

p.s.

Ger, thanks for responding to RRM (sic). I love the bit about Afghanistan.  ;D

Ger has thrown the second curve ball in his response to RRM

Hate to rain on your parade here, but from the standpoint of an accomplished scientist, Gerwyn's comments on the PLoS site make him look like a fool. Beyond the poor spelling and grammar, he is trying to defend the same errors in logic that he advanced on this forum in response to my statements. Too bad; his really doesn't help the cause of ME/CFS patients.

I guess you just can't help yourself Dusty.  Do you want to know the truth, or are you out to bash sick people?

Still you put forward no defence for not using a positive clinical sample or use of the unsafe IAP assay, that you have concerns about.

Do you imagine that you are immune from ME/CFS yourself?  I hope you are right, because you will have wasted funding and time.

As we know Mikovits and Ruscetti also share the same concerns as Gerwyn and I for that matter, do you think they are foolish to?  Can you answer that question?

Wow, you really are a nice person to tell us that, Dr Miller **dripping with sarcasm** when you are so wrong, and all.

Dusty, you can have some of my blood, if you'll let me inject it into you, subcutaneously.  You may tell, your posts are now making me cross (in a non-involved way)
