Increasingly I am frustrated with DNUK and have hardly accessed it for ages, other than for my email. So I have missed the incidents involving you. I also recall how we were both effectively told off by Dr X for being concerned about our personal data being sold to M3. That annoyed me intensely as he dismissed us as stupid women.'
"Flying Spaghetti Monster" has asked me to forward this apology to you.

- Hi Una,
Also, it is very interesting indeed to see that you have across Shane McKee - I have however came across him on DNUK and many of his posts have been thoroughly unprofessional, abusive, full of foul language, insulting, sarcastic, and downright nasty. I reported him to the DNUK office several years ago. Apparently they told him to tone down his posts a little - which of course didn't work.
He has a disgusting attitude, and I think I actually mentioned to DNUK that he was in breach of GMC regulations. Nothing ever happened though.'

Post Script August 2013:
Being attacked by a gang of predominantly white male NHS doctors is appalling and needs to be put in the public domain to clean up cyberbullying by cohorts of NHS doctors against female NHS doctors!
End women-hating misogynistic cyberbullying! Why do some NHS doctors, predominantly male, feel it is okay to target me, Professor Lis Paice and Professor Gillian Needham for addressing cyberbullying against women in our society and medical profession!
