i think we're actually in agreement on what is in multi6 and what in
ptomaine, and that promaine is an attempt to stall until there is a cure.
and this was fairly clearly set out in ptomain's original statements.
i suspect where we may disagree is the etiology of the disease. i suspect
that this may be one of those viruses where those infected think that they
are healthy as it is only their neighbors who suffer from the symptoms.
