    It has taken prime position in the Times 2 section of today's print edition. Times 2 is the daily section with magazine type articles at the front, TV in the middle and games at the back. It's spread across the centre of pages 2 and 3, occupying in excess of a page worth of space.

    I am interested in thoughts on whether I should post something like the page image above as a legible image or, as I have done, as an overview to protect copyright across the paywall. I could have done something more legible, perhaps spread over multiple screen grabs. I currently have a subscription.

    Mods, should we set some guidance? My thoughts are based on past practice in the other place.

    My thought is that the image you posted isn't a copyright issue, since the image quality is low enough that we can't read the article. But it is nice to see the image of the article, since that demonstrates the high profile of the story. I can't imagine the publisher having a problem with it, since it's free publicity for them.

    Whole articles shouldn't be quoted and it's best to include your own discussion/comments of any cited portions, to qualify as fair use.

    I'm surprised that they didn't work the "militant patients threatening death to all researchers" meme in there.

    A rather short, half-hearted fence-sitting review I thought.

    To me it seemed like 'It didn't fall in line with our frightfully self-righteous touchy feely approach to everything so we thought it was boring and we didn't bother to go in the garden to be either one side of the fence or the other or even sit on it. Some other people seemed to think it was newsworthy so we thought we had better say something, in the form of a disconnected word salad of inconclusive references to things we remembered about ME, er CFS, er whatsitsname ...'

    I'm about to cancel the Guardian so I may tell them this is the final straw.

    Do it.

    I generally like the Guardian, the Oz version at least (which is the one I read) has some excellent journos, like the economics writer Greg Jericho, who is a model of data driven clarity.

    But they get not a penny from me until they start reporting straight on ME stuff, without the gross SMC spin.

    Ask them to employ a Russian correspondent who can speak Russian, is not scared of common apartment cleaning procedures, and is not a plagiarist for me while you do so please.

    (I know, but it was a bugbear of mine until I finally stopped reading it.)

    For non-UK people who might not understand the context here, this review was broadcast on one of the BBC's national radio channels, 5 Live, which is a talk radio station, covering news, current events and sport. This was part of a daytime regular, weekly, film review section. So it's pretty mainstream in terms of our radio.

    Bit of a tangent. . .

    I'm hoping this and other positive media stories will reach Martine McCutcheon. As a celebrity and sick person she has done such harm to the community IMO Would love to see that rectified and some celebrity somewhere find this to be a just and worthy cause to bring into the spotlight.
