@Kerqyalz I am someone who loves to reconsider things from a radical shift in perspective. I appreciate that you have broached the topic, esp because there were many details of Dr M's railroading that were very suspicious to me. Same for DeFreitas. However, may I suggest that you reconsider your posts before posting, to avoid making blanket statements (X is wrong, Y is the ultimate truth end of story, etc) and instead provide your process and evidence in arriving at your conclusions? I also find that sharing things from one's own direct experience or inquiry is more valuable than offering subjective opinions as full-on, flat out fact, without anything to support or engage the reader in considering their validity. Most people will not listen to decrees of this nature, and I think it could be valuable to revisit this topic, even just speculatively, to see if there is more to glean. But as you are sure to know it remains a hot-button topic and many people have long ago come to strong conclusions about it for their own reasons--so the prospect of revisiting it may require a more refined invitation to your audience. If you'd like to open a dialogue about XMRV/RVs, it would be helpful to actually dialogue rather than issue proclamations that likely make the reader feel they are being talked down to or over. I understand many of us on here are writing in a non-native language, and whether that is or is not the case for you, it is always possible to provide information supporting your points of view, or at least a description of the elements that brought you to those conclusions. Thank you in advance for considering using a bit more diplomacy so that we can better hear what you have to say.
