If you are reading this, you obviously have a lot of fans here. I would not get discouraged just because a few people got offended and may seem offensive. I believe letting others know ones thoughts as they are is the best policy. As a result, some of my best friends are people who have completely opposite views than me. Our debates often raised people's eyebrows, but in the end I respect them for doing and saying what they believe.
Unfortunately, in my case, in the internet boom and bust I have seen quite a share of smooth operators who would talk up penny stocks for a gain. I've learned to be very sensitive to this. You not disclosing a financial interest while getting everyone, including myself, so excited about this new drug you were on, sent shivers down my back when I found out about the financial stake. All of a sudden, it all looked poisoned. Fortunately, you also raised my awareness of Tovaxin, which I continue to believe in. For the first of these I am pissed, for the second, I am grateful.
So, I wouldn't stop doing and saying what you believe just because you rubbed a few people the wrong way. (E.g., for me, that would just get me even more guarded and skeptical if you stopped.)
For my statistical curiosity, does anyone know or have thoughts on chances being positive for MRTCs in this study? (Please?)
I know it doesn't change anything individually. In the end, the result is binary (yes or no). But, it is just me, I like having a feel for the numbers.
