  • I was about to subscribe to Prof G’s site. This is too weird that he is still creating content but not here this blog, which my understanding was initiated by him. I hope now without him the blog will still do well.

      • Yes I know date of article. . Did time resolve issue? , this I don’t know but welcome whatever insight out there.

    • This blog has been around since 2012, surely if it posed a risk to anyone’s livelihood that would have become apparent before now? I doubt this is Prof G’s reason for removing his old posts.

      • Far too many fragile egos out there that cannot handle an honestly expressed opinion I suspect may have contributed.

      • I’m glad to see the end of the cult of Prof G. As Greta would say – blah, blah, blah. Lots of talk but not much walk. Effective anti-virals never arrived. The add-on therapies to provide neuro-protection never arrived. We never got off first base with the wretched treatment pyramid.

        Is Prof G the messiah? No, he’s just a very naughty boy.

        • Well Bob or is that Brutus, as we have seen from Waco when a cult ends it is never a good thing:-) The add-on neuroportections did arrive but are awaiting publication and importantly replication, the ibudilast study had a base and there are others.

          • It’s always jam tomorrow! Until effective treatments to address the real MS and/or provide neuro-protection are available at Boots the chemist, Team G is off my Christmas card list. There is hope – Dr Wafa, NDG and Ide Smets are the future. Mouse killers and that bod from South Africa must make way for these young Turks.

          • Blah, blah, blah.
            Yadda, yadda, yadda.
            Whoever may take over, the sourness of your comments will be a constant, something I’m sure we can all give thanks for. 🙂

          • You can potentially buy neuroprotection from Boots already…but will the approach to show this utimately fail because of this? 🙁

            There was a lot of hope in vitamin D read this Bouillon R, Manousaki D, Rosen C, Trajanoska K, Rivadeneira F, Richards JB.The health effects of vitamin D supplementation: evidence from human studies. Nat Rev Endocrinol. 2021 Nov 23. doi: 10.1038/s41574-021-00593-z.

            However, get it off your chest now whilst you have a soapbox:-)…With Prof G gone will we hear about “real MS”, black swans again….as you put your head above the parapet and it gets shot off.
            Hope you have made your chrimbo cards or got from a Charity shop:-).

    • I have had a look on the MS selfie site I dont see any comments, and had a look and the comments visible where not posted by ProfG so I suspect they have all gone.

  • Egos are by nature always fragile. So What’s changed now to gut the blog?? Many say Covid has heightened the managerial grip on doctors everywhere by hospital administrators.
    https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/04/why-are-hospitals-censoring-doctors-and-nurses/609766/
    In US medical facilities countrywide have forbidden staff from contacting the media without permission under threat of termination. https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2020/04/07/hospitals-are-censoring-doctors-theyre-endangering-rest-us/. As for cult of personality, that’s the very nature of social media, which is why one data expert who studied the rise of doctors deseminating info on social media platforms during Covid opinined, “it is important that these science influencers exist, as they base their content on objective facts and scientific evidence, and not on beliefs.” At page 10 https://mdpi-res.com/d_attachment/ijerph/ijerph-18-11229/article_deploy/ijerph-18-11229.pdf . I’m sad. We all lose without his voice on this forum.

      • Wish I wasn’t so plagued by the Why?!?!?
        It’s so evident that the Blog benefits the widest possible audience with the number of experts able to post and engage in the exchange of comments generated. ProfG is now another lone voice, such as the likes of A Boster.

        Also it could be argued that the comments in reply to his posts were not his property to do with as he so chooses. We all contributed and reacted to one another’s replies and any value to this has been stripped away from us by his actions.

        I know that ProfG has not left us bereft with his MS Selfie, and I have signed up for it in an attempt to not lose out, but the Blog is depleted, if not actually damaged. When it worked so well as a team why go solo?

        Back to the painful feeling Why?

  • Is it safe to assume that both MD1&MD2 disagree with ProfG on a professional level? But, I am not smart to make my own judgement on what is MS or how you treat.

    • Not safe to assume I’m afraid….As to making a judgement on what is MS, it may not matter because it is not relevant to the question you are addressing
