Understood. Niclas, however your tone-which is driven by your choice of words- doesn’t come across as helpful. I have indeed made those changes. If you look at the other comments I received which were hugely helpful I did indeed make those changes. I value input otherwise I don’t grow. I took that seriously and despite this devil of an iPad and lousy connections I’ve done what I could to rectify. Kindly, you took issue with far more than just the Monsanto statement- and the WAY you did it denigrates my heartfelt efforts and all the research I did indeed do. After further searching I agree wholeheartedly with you that the Monsanto quote was wrong. Very happy to make that change because that honors not you those who sought to put me right but also I do wish to correct my mistakes. I might invite you to reread your comments and not that there was sweeping criticism and a nearly personal attack about the whole piece. You are very welcome to your opinion. However if you wish me to grow, listen, hear, value and honor your input, which I am most willing to do, it needn’t be done with an attack. That’s how it came across. And it was public which is why you had people clapping on your response. Next time if you wish to communicate privately, please do so. I will read, I will listen and I will pay attention. Your disagreement isn’t offensive at all. As with most communication it’s HOW it’s delivered.
