Yes Dick, as I stated, I have no intentions of getting anything published myself. Let me be clear, it was not my grant, it was not my study, it was not my writing, it was not my intentions of participating in a study to make an article to attach my name.
Does that mean I am not willing to put up or shut up? Thats right. I am more than willing to help out when needed. I am also more than willing to work behind the scenes when I can without the "primary" reason of being published.
I mainly pointed out the comment about the article and the failure to get it published due to reasons of it not being entertainment. That research and ongoing studies will be ignored by mainstrean magazines if the information is not "entertaining". The mag stated that readers want entertainment, not research, answers to questions, or studies with results. I was making those comments to show where the industry is when it comes to such matters.
My comment on "some" holding out perhaps information till papers and articles are published, even in times when some are being wiped out, was two paragraphs down from my comments on the rejected research paper. They are seperate issues Dick. I have come forward with information, and even skirted the issue of making suggestions of other ongoing research (Of those who want information published first) in attempts to get information out to the public. To get it in as many hands as possible, as soon as possible, with the hopes that the information pool can benefit and grow as we all can add our experiences.
Dick, Since your so willing to nitpick my comments...Was it not you that commented along the lines of "I'll be coming out with information in the next couple months in ABJ"...after others were making comments about nutrition, stress, and other areas of thoughts concerning CCD? I wonder how willing you would of been to get involved in letting anyone know what you found or knew, if not for the fact others had been sniffing down that road also. As it was, you added little beyond letting others know you were writing a paper and covering your story(butt) by indicating you had already been on the case.
Let me know if you want to carry this further. I can post the actual comments by you Dick, and the lack of any real information on your part til I can only assume after your article is published.
