As a professional journalist i do not usually take sides on matters of public interest.
IF WHAT I READ HAS OFFENDED ANYBODY IN ANYWAY, I WISH TO STATE THAT IT WAS NEVER MY THOUGHTS OR BELIEFS.
I wish to use this opportunity to make it abundantly clear that I never went to the forum for any personal gain.
I further state that I left the forum without any financial or material compensation of any kind.
