Hmmm...I think you're right. I don't think it's always been this way, but it has always gone through these phases when there is a hot topic and some people invariably don't think the hot topic is all it's cracked up to be. As an old-timer, I remember back in ought 4 there was a mighty ruckus raised about LDN and antibiotics. Then over the years, those were replaced by tovaxin and revimmune and now CCSVI.

Hopefully the evidence for CCSVI builds up to mountain-size and solves all the world's problems.

yeah...and I apologize for anyway I've made it not so fun, JL. But really, it's all dig's fault for finding Zamboni :)

But if it's any consolation, we'll find out one way or the other if this is it, and either it'll be a big party, or stuff will return to the norm.

Hey hey hey, I thought we had agreed it was Dom who discovered Zamboni! I like blaming Dom, especially because he's not posting anymore, he's the ideal scapegoat (and maybe he'll come out of retirement to defend himself).

jimmy, I agree that the fighting kind of sucks, but I'm torn because I like the "constructive debate" portion of the discussion. Too bad those debates cross the line sometimes.

@cheer: hehehe. yea i'm sure it's going to be an important part of the puzzle, i just wish people weren't getting all agro about it all the time :(

i guess it's easy to be more laid back when you're like me - not that sick and no-one depending on you.

@dignan: lol! see this is the TIMS i like. constructive debate has always been great here, IMO... exactly dig - it's the line crossing that can skedaddle any time! sometimes i just can't even bring myself to contribute to a topic... when the feel is so hostile.. not going to stick my neck out.

jimmy, I'm the same about the neck. I spend quite a lot of time in front of a computer (there's a shocker) and I know my posture isn't great, so I'm hoping maybe better posture would be better for the old drainage. Hey, it's a whole new meaning to "brain drain".

To Jimmylegs, Cheerleader, Digan etc.......

This site had been a Godsend for me. I have learned more in the 1+ year since I discovered this site than in the 7 years that have been trying to learn about MS. I need you guys! You may not need me - but I really need all of you and your opinions -good or bad, right or wrong, proven or ancedotal.

I don't know what else to say.
