well said, well said, well said. There's an awful lot of people out here, and public flameouts, especially those traceable to the misinterpretation of a few lines of text, are at best laughable. Standing on someone's head won't make anybody feel any bigger ... and this board will suffer every time someone leaves it.
Back to a serious question. If one in fifteen hundred people suffer CH, and very few people have ever met other sufferers, and if CH'ers come from all walks of life, engage in all manner of activities, eat all kinds of diets, live in all weathers, etc, etc, how would it be possible to discover if there are some groups or types of people who do not suffer from it? As far as I know, no survey has ever identified any common factors regarding predisposition to CH, but then again, perhaps it's only netwise that a truly elaborate survey would be possible, (given the premise of the 1/1500). If enough current boardwriters and lurkers could come forward to reveal what we have in common, (apart from the symptoms!) in terms of things we do, and things we don't do, things we are, and things we are not, etc, it might be possible to draw a more precise CH profile than we have.
