    If someone blocks you then if you log out of twitter you can see their tweets or use incognito mode in the browser.

    They were collected from various social media sources so there is no way to verify them. I suspect the original purpose was to counter claims from QMUL that if a patient was identified they would be attacked and killed by a mob of angry patients. Since no one we attacked on social media

    Yeah, member of the blocked by Michael team. Seems his Twitter charm offensive may be over. Details viewable in another browser or in stealth mode, of course.

    No we are just asking clear questions, you are feeling dizzy after 10 years of spin and finally major players have woken up to you, maybe you should spin round the other way so you don't fall over.

    A cursory Googling only turns up Alem's main response and this blog post by Clark Ellis which links the Google page @Adam pwme posted:

    https://autodidactauthor.wordpress.com/2016/08/29/pace-and-the-interests-of-trial-participants/

    "One document submitted by Alem Matthees as part of the evidence to the tribunal was a document collating the publicly available comments from PACE trial participants who had voluntarily come forward to express their views in public. A copy can be found here. It was submitted to dispute the claims of QMUL that patient participants were in danger of being harassed, and shows that in all cases where patient participants have come forward they have not been harassed, but rather have been praised, thanked and supported. This is no surprise, as we are all patients and we all just want to get better."

    ‘Kind regards’ ey. The pretence of respect, dressings of politeness - how insidious. :(

    Life is too short to try and explain the way out of all his contradictions. It would take him years at this point.

    I am not a patient. You can call me a patient when it's safe for me to go near a doctor and tell them I've got ME, and they know what to do about it or at least manage to do no harm. I am not an activist, I have never been less active. "Activist" is just a label you made up. You are addressing nobody (and you know it because you've blocked all those you are purportedly addressing), just talking to yourself and posturing to your mates and a rapidly diminishing audience of others, as usual.

    I think your gotcha maybe got to Prof. Michael Sharpe. I dearly wish doing right by PwME would also get to him, as he still could do if he really cared. We are not playing games, far from it, but MS's tweets show his own form of game playing, and how to not take seriously the lives of so many sick people.
