Basically, Dr. Bob and the Body have to say three months to six months to cover themselves. Most experts, including those who work for the CDC, and even some of those on the Body (even Dr. Bob, if I recall correctly), concur that a 6 week test is pretty indicative of ones status (especially with the new tests), and only a small minority will test positive shortly thereafter -- hence the three month window period. Today's tests have to be able to detect seroconversion panels to be in use -- at least in Europe and Canada, I think the US is behind on this.

And there is no reason for Shadesofgray or whatever to post this long dialogue from the Body from god knows when, especially with hypercondriacs like Bura around.
