I am not sure that I have understood McCarthy posting and I think it
may be confusing for people that didn't read the original posting. 
I didn't quote it since it was very long.
I don't remember whether the original sender was identified as a 
PhD; so, I am not sure who is for McCarthy a "feckless PhD".
The question I posted and is quoted by McCarthy was a very plain
argument against a new version of non-HIV AIDS, exclusively based
on the thesis that positive Elisa or Western tests were caused by
immune reactions against nonviral antigens (in this case, furanoside
polysacharides). Not to dissert against this, I just pointed the
PCR question as something that even a layman could understand.
