Discussion in 'General ME/CFS News' started by Indigophoton, Apr 9, 2018.
A student of his (from MIT), Danny Hollis, is on twitter.
Thank you so m uch for raising my pet issue which I discussed with NICE this week- They denied any reference to this in recent NICE Surveillance work- I know otherwise!
I've just read through all of this again, but can't find a comment on Twitter by Michael Sharpe along the lines of the PACE trial "just being a trial". Am I imagining it?
You mean this one?
That's the one! Thanks. How do you manage to find things like that?
I don't know how @Esther12 found it but here's the advanced search link that I often use when I want to find something on twitter:
Thanks @ahimsa , but the truth is that I've known @Esther12 for a long time now and can confidently report it is simply the result of a colossal brain, unbelievable organizational skills, and a susceptibility to flattery. (Only two of those are true)
Nah, it was just 'advanced search'. That's all it has ever been...
Can only assume that Sharpe is being unintentionally (and doubly) ironic here.
First he posts this
which can be read here for anybody interested, https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2731897
and then posts this
or maybe he's trying to be useful, he posts a link to something that could have helped stop his medical misinformation, and then he finds another example of misinformation and shares it as an example? (No, I don't believe any of that either.)
Oh god, its so transparent! Sharpe trying to imply that any scepticism directed at his research is due to "misinformation".
I think its rather obvious he has no real understanding of the material in this paper, probably hasn't even read it. He just retweets things based on the sound of them alone, whether they enhance his twitter "image".
Who's game to ask if he's read the paper?
Sharpe should continue tweeting about the lightning process.
It makes him look like a raving quack. I think it also reveals how he really sees CFS: as choice and all in the mind.
The article he tweeted is by a girl in England who 'recovered' after 3 years using 'graded activity' which, from her description, sounds a lot like pacing having been off school for a year and a half (post glandular fever).
maybe someone could ask him what happened to the
PACE 10 year follow-up: feasibility study
eta: also,there is no point getting the data if you won't share it!
Oh good, MS is back on twitter. Only a matter of time before he shoots himself in the foot again.
No point in getting the data because they stuffed up the randomisation. Any further outcomes data would be meaningless.
but it's not just a trial.............it's an MS trial (queue music)
