I guess I’m not the only person who has missed J Todd DeShong’s great blog, dissidents4dumbees. It is often referred to fondly in the comment threads at Seth Kalichman’s blog, Denying AIDS and other oddities. In fact, that’s where JTD and all of the anonymous gang members who used to populate D4D’s comment threads now hang out:
You and your ARV-loving friends at the HIVforum (Italian language forum for HIV-positives) might want to have your medications checked. Your latest public attack on a respected and admired researcher is nothing, if not irrational.
When did you decide that you can speak for all of us who have AIDS, or who test positive for HIV?

This may be the first time that a mainstream AIDS site has referred to this blog as a “clear-eyed ‘alternative hypothesis’ site,” and I’m flattered. Given that, I hope you will look around a bit. A good place to […more]
No one wants to see the grave of a loved one disturbed. It’s dishonorable, distasteful, and usually illegal. That is exactly what happened this weekend though. There is a page on my blog called “the graveyard”, a list of dead friends that I published as a response to those who claimed that every time an […more]
This post is for Seth Kalichmen and Peter Staley and joe.by.god and all the other AIDS drug pushers who so brutally bashed Christine Maggiore when she died recently. (For an account of Christine’s passing from someone who actually knew her,visit her memorial site.) Now yet another one of “yours” has died. How should we note […more]
After writing yesterday’s post, I came across this article in the New York Review of Books, written by Marcia Angell, former editor of no less than the New England Journal of Medicine, currently Senior Lecturer in the Department of Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School. In this must read, entitled “Drug Companies & Doctors: A […more]
