"Also the disease greyscale, which while treatable to an extent can cause insanity if untreated. Advanced greyscale victims apparently gather together and attack the uninfected. It's also telling that the wildlings consider greyscale to be akin to becoming a wight."

Is it really suggested that the disease itself causes insanity? The "attacking the unaffected" thing could merely be a result of being forced into a life of banditry by social ostracism.
