That's not good.
Want to fill us in on why the blog has closed? We really miss our daily fix of information.
What happened? Is this because of that troll that has been posting offensive comments? Just ignore him. The work you have been doing is too precious to be destroyed by some nincompoop
With all due respect, it is actually cruel to just up and leave with no explanation.
A lot of people frequent this blog and find it a great source.
The least you could do is make a statement that it is closed indefinitely so as to save everyone the hassle of checking in again.
I am a medical doctor with MS who found this resource invaluable. MS is an incredibly scary disease to have and to be able to keep up with research in a candid way has been great. But this will leave me wondering.
Nooooo please come back….
Sorry to hear that. This blog became an important source for me when I recently had to re-face my MS 14 years after my CIS. I hope to read more from you guys and the research you're doing. There are lots of pwMS who count on you. Best wishes.
I am so, so sad about this. But I wanted to say thank you for all the work that has gone into this blog over the years. You have made a huge difference to my life. Thank you again. Sorry it couldn't continue.
thank you for the update as a person with ppms who reads your blog every day I just needed to say you have the best site with info for people with ms don't give up and I am sure there are people out there who will offer any assistance they can THANKS TO YOU ALL
This has been my go-to source of informed and reliable commentary on MS developments. I recommend it to EVERYONE I come across within the MS world and have referred to it so many times when i've needed information. You've made research accessible and I can truly say that it's a wrench to hear it's being closed :((((((
Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone. A real loss to the community. Your blog was unique, intelligent, informative, interesting and always welcome. So sorry to see you go.
I wrote this and sent it to an email address on the blog. I received a bounce from the mail server. I would now like to post:
Dear Prof G,
Thank you so much for the blog these last few years, it meant a great deal to me. I enjoyed learning more about this disease and it gave me a sense of control, hope and well being. Before my own diagnosis I lost my mother to MS and my brother is EDSS 8.5. As you know MS is an unpredictable illness and is therefore particularly exposed to cranks and hokum; your blog held the line and eventually pushed back the frontier. Your actions saved many people from an untimely demise.
I will miss MD, MD2, NDG & Dr K.
Please pass my thanks on to the team.
I have to say this is a fantastic blog. I am sure it has influenced so many people with MS. It must go on! Thank you for all your energy and hard work. Please please continue…
Closing Timehttps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WlVYwWYHcXE"The time went so quickly…."
That is a big shame, why? Will something replace it?
If you stop posting, others will fill the gap. I don't want information from Mercola,Mike Rogers or the ccsvi group.Perhaps a permanent note explaining that you aren't paid by Pharma to push certain drugs and that the NHS is very restrictive in what treatments it offers. Please don't let Mercola, that horrible Health Ranger nutjob, or the ccsvi group win space in the blogosphere.This blog is the voice of reason.It is so important to people who live with MS.I'd use my ms society login, but cantharelus. So anon is my only option. Dr Dre shouldn't be allowed to post until he has something meaningful and relevant about MS to say. It's obvious that he just wants to kick Prof Giovanoni. So fight back. Please. Please.
First of all thanks for work Personally I think this is the best page for information about MS I know(And I write from Spain) I respect you decision but I hope to follow reading tour posts asap.Thanks
