IMHO, these posts teach us all something.  I have learned a great deal 
from people's responses to questions of this nature.  As you said, these 
diseases are sometimes ones we have never heard of, and thus how can we 
not learn from the responses?

Am I alone in this opinion?  As long as the posts relate to neuroscience, 
I see no harm :-)
