Kent Bastard Heckenlively Is A Liar

Well no fucking shock there, eh? Kent Heckenlively is a berk(shire hunt) who blogs at Age Of Autism, and shows a quite remarkable propensity for being fucking stupid, and cruel to his autistic daughter (although I'm sure he thinks of it as "searching for a cure").

Anyway, he's got a thing about XMRV, the mouse retrovirus that was (most likely) mistakenly found in patients suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, by a doctor who it seems has been faking results, refusing to give out raw data for checking, and has now been sacked. Sound familiar?

Anyway, Kent's posted a piece entitled "Study Finds XMRV Retrovirus Can Infect Brain Cells", in which he cites a ropey as fuck study; "Susceptibility of Human Primary Neuronal Cells to Xenotropic Murine Leukemia Virus-related (XMRV) Virus Infection" which he claims has been published in that very reputable journal, "The Journal of Virology". Woo, scary - maybe there's something in this then?

Except it hasn't, it's been published in "Virology Journal", a completely different publication which is most famous for publishing a paper regarding Christ's healing of influenza in the Bible.

That's not to say it's wrong, buut it's a deliberate attempt to mislead. Or, in other words…

You lying fuck Heckenlively.
