I am utterly amazed that someone who has posted over 10% of the content in this public discussion
forum could have such thin skin. Moreover, you really should read more carefully.
Or are you just being obtuse for snide effect?
Here we go again. You can stop with the tone and hateful words toward me.
Again, you miss the point. The actual unkind words came before
this sentence when I said, "You do indeed seem to be confused." (And I am not sure this is really that unkind, since you asked us to "call [you] confused.") The sentence you quote actually shows my trying to provide an alternate theory for your seeming to be puzzled by the need for neurologists to evaluate relapses in an MS therapy trial. Also, as some of you may be able to tell, I rate snide writing rather highly.
In any event, I think I do have my answer. You were clearly not trying to achieve any snide (insinuating, slyly disparaging) effect by pretending to be obtuse. Clearly, something else was going on.
That was totally uncalled for and is not acceptable on this Board. If your opinion is different than mine, fine. But trying to speak to or with me in such a disrespectful manner as you have all throughout your post will not be tolerated. You can't simply explain your position without a feeble attempt to discredit and demean me personally in the process? Now THAT'S really impressive, huh?
I don't think my words overstepped any bounds of civil discourse. You just didn't like what you heard. Anyway, this board is moderated. If my response to your comments was that over the top, then I would like to hear it directly from the moderator. This really is not your job.
Being a paralegal, I'll have you know that I do this for a living. You better believe I know exactly how to read things. My interpretations stand up in court. Do yours?
You do a lot of critiquing of drug labels on the job? [edited by moderator-- please do not put personal identification information in posts]
I have successfully petitioned a court in the past. But I don't see how your being a paralegal makes you any sort of authority on drug labels, any more than my being a lawyer (or an engineer or the Tooth Fairy) would. I don't think any profession has a monopoly on reason. Based on what I have read, your "interpretations" would not "stand up" in a middle school debate contest. Drafting spurious motions, I suspect, is your forte. You are certainly drowning this forum in paper.
Now....again....no further discussion with me, especially if you are unable to remain respectful!
Of course, what was I thinking? I thought this was a discussion forum. They have these things called personal web sites. They are very good for people who like monologues.
P.S. Oh, yea, I did research FOR a neurologist, so when you speak to YOURS "maybe" you are receiving some of MY input along with his. You never know.
Oh yes, I am sure your influence in medical research has been far-reaching. After all, you are a paralegal. Now, is this an inappropriate response to your statement? I just don't know how else to react to such hubris. I mean, are you kidding?
EDIT: I would also like to add that if you or anyone else don't "like" my questions or comments, simply ignore them. Please do not go on the personal "attack". ESPECIALLY if what I'm saying is thought of so harshly and is thought I don't know what I'm talking about.......then why worry so much about what I say? Simply ignore it.
Calling this a personal attack is inaccurate. I have no idea who you are. I attacked the content of your post. If you don't like my tone, feel free to ignore me. (Take your own ill-founded advice.) This should be easy. Most of the time I just lurk.
Having a dialogue should be the essence of the forum. I read your post, and I had something to say. It is called cross-examination in some circles, and it should prompt you to defend what you said or otherwise to clarify your positions. You elected not to do that, but rather to make a big issue of how offended you were.
Now can we get back to the label? Am I reading too much into the antibody statements?
