    flo, first, I don't get paid any more than you get paid. Should I be assuming that you are being paid by the people who stand to make money when glyphosate gets banned? Like other companies that sell other agricultural chemicals. It's pathetic to see people like you who think that anyone who disagrees with you must be doing it out of greed.

    But in the case of me and glyphosate, it's even worse. Because there's lots of stuff coming out that suggests that glyphosate is more dangerous than we previously thought, and while Monsanto says this is all wrong, I have said that I think every possible claim of harm should be investigated. I said, for example, that Europe should delay re-authorizing its use until the doubts get resolved. You, unfortunately, have the mode of thought that anyone who offers an opinion, or even worse some facts, that contradict your case must not only be paid to post but also must disagree with you about everything.

    Just one other thing. I don't know about you but I have personally taken a part in environmental protection. For many years I was involved in keeping harmful chemicals out of my community's water supply and out of the ponds and estuaries. That meant I had to actually look at the suggested tolerances to just about every known harmful chemical and figure out how to keep to within those tolerances. I get seriously put off by people whose contribution to the environment consists mainly of commenting on the bulletin boards and selecting only the stories that fit their pre-held ideas.
