Interestingly, the abstract for the original research paper mentions neither "new" nor "aids-like"...

Adult-Onset Immunodeficiency in Thailand and Taiwan

Thanks for sharing those links Newt.

I am so shocked that a news article would be inaccurate and use words like AIDS Like and new to garner attention for their article  ;)

My favourite is reading articles on MSNBC, I have lost count the number of spelling errors I have seen.

How long before the facts get twisted and the crazies try and lay the blame for this disease on gay people.

Please, if its not the Haitians, its the Asians!  Its always the "Other".  I'm trying to remember who used to say this:  "Swedes: dirty, sexual people!"  It was one of my friend's grandma.  Or maybe it was a line in some movie.

Thank you all. This thread made me laugh quite a lot.

I just roll my eyes whenever I read
"Is gonorrhea the new Aids?"
"Is Chargas the new Aids"
or in this case
"Did the Asians invent Aids 2.0?"

Every disease is different and HIV has quite a few properties that will be hardly ever matched by any other disease.

So please... let me indulge in some self pity about my HIV status and don't let any other copycat disease take a share from the Aids stigma...
