    New post today from David F. Marks.

    The PACE Trial: A Catalogue of Errors

    Rarely in the history of clinical medicine have doctors and patients been placed to bitterly at loggerheads. The dispute had been a long time coming.

    That tweet from Marks to Sharpe has made my day!
    And Sharpe can't even reply 'have you read the PACE trial papers' since Marks is the editor of the JHP special issue on PACE. Question is, will Sharpe dare to block Marks?

    Interesting he calls it the DBT. I have previously called it the DBM, dysfunctional belief model. This issue of integrated confirmation biases is a big part of how I understand what is going on.

    "Unfortunately, across the pro-PACE group of authors there was a consistent pattern of resistance to the debate.

    After receiving critical reviews, the pro-PACE authors chose to make only cosmetic changes or not to revise their manuscripts in any way whatsoever.

    They appeared unwilling to enter into the spirit of scientific debate. They acted with a sense of entitlement not to have to respond to criticism."

    A seriously over-developed sense of entitlement is what they have in truck loads, and is core to the whole problem.
