> I knew what the DST was.

Yeah, I figured. I was just defining it for the benefit of readers who might not be familiar with it.

> What confused me at the time was whether non-suppression was considered to be a negative result (because it failed to suppress cortisol secretion) or if it were positive because it demonstrated an anomaly or pathology. I guess I'm still confused.

Yeah; to prevent this confusion, I think it's best to describe people as "suppressors" or "nonsuppressors" rather than as testing positive or negative.
