Hi Anita, Thank you for your advice and for offering to support the discussion. Sorry to hear you don't like syndrome. My thoughts on that have been shared with you many times (summarized above in comments to Ann Packman on 15th OCT) Good thing you don't have Tourettes Syndrome or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (maybe you don't like the words Tourette or Bowel either). Do you think people with these syndromes should be/are discriminated against? Another post that may be of interest is my comment to James on OCT 20 in "Professor is in" section. Re opinion of pws. As yo uknow I've been carrying on this debate for 2 years. Obviously my articles in One Voice, presentations in Croatia, Adelaide and Oxford, plus the 3 weeks of this conference, have given pws an opportunity to make considered comment. I'm delighted to have the support of many pws including such well-known and influential figures as Alan Badmington and John Harrison.
