Well thats pretty much the nature of what the RSPB complains about.

ie. more extreme control and more extreme monoculture.


So this is the answer to why herbicides are bad? That people use them to
kill plants where they don't want them? On that basis we should ban hoes.


Its why an extreme version based on GM technology is bad.
In the lists of arguments it is one that is likely, and rather dull as it is
only an extension of what currently happens.
No need for proof, its conjecture about the future based on very well known
effects of what is happening now.

As you state, any agriculture can damage natural systems, but we current
agricultural practice is already rather extreme.
Its rather similar to arguments that hormone use in milk production is bad
for animal welfare - worse than what we currently do, but current practice
is already dodgy in places.

I am very surprised that you are not aware of these arguments, what are you
doing at the below address?
Actually it was my fifth choice for university!

I don't think that eating GM crops is necessarily bad for you, so the

I interpret this to mean that he is exercising his rights of academic
freedom to express a view not unrelated to his area of expertise as a
member of a university. I would be most concerned if he was only able to
speak when authorised by his university.

I realise that this may be an alien concept to some people employed in
companies, or even employed by some government institutions, but it is a
concept still defended in universities. As a fellow academic I would
defend his right to express his views even though I may not agree with
the opinions he expresses.


It has nothing to do with free speech. Peter Ashby can say what he
wants, when he wants and where he wants as far as I am concerned, I
would defend that right too.

Bragging how big his dick is, the fact that the university is
sponsoring him and that we are paying for it is completely unnecessary
to promoting free speech. If the comments are not on behalf of the
uni, don't advertise it then.


Oh dear, poor Pete.


pete who?

Once again he's come up against someone who isn't
afraid of the light and doesn't live in an attic posting with either
imaginary names or no ****ing name at all.


I know, I like old Ashby, he's a tart but he stands up for himself,
unlike you.

Perhaps those of us who don't
lie,


That counts you out goat ****er.

don't stalk others on usenet, etc.


And again sister screwer.

don't actually have a need to hide
their identity.


But you sorely wish you had.

Indeed other than myself the only individual I've ever
encountered on usenet who saw fit to post my address


So what's the big deal?

was you Pete.


pete who?

And
that's only because you chose to invent a load of crap about me ****ing
livestock


You do **** livestock, google shows us.

and then trying to encourage others to complain to the Police,


About your lunatic, criminal behaviour no doubt?

etc. about this and other ficticious crimes.


what are they?

I've come to the conclusion that everything written about you is true,
probably.

If it wasn't for morons such as Pete


pete who?

everyone would feel free to post using
their real name


Most of us do.

and as much other information as they considered
appropriate to introduce themselves to others. With ****wits like Pete


pete who?

about there's a constant risk of endless crap in your inbox and worse.


What makes publishing private details dangerous is when lunatic
stalkers like you decide to target us, petrol bomb house and assault
innocent people, all just because you want to abuse animals? daft if
you ask me.

Not to mention the virus, credit card fraud, Dos attacks and other
stuff you carry out.

Pete.


pete who?

For Christ's sake **** off and leave everyone here alone.


Shame you cant handle social intercourse saunby, maybe that's what
drove you to **** animals, did they love you long time before you cut
their throat, did you have sex with them before or after you cut their
throat.?

You're
not welcome and you're not even doing any good for the AR cause.


See www.google.com for ARs profiles.... it's really quite high.....no
more fox hunting for you soon pervie!

In what way are the crops more efficient?

Any evidence that it's
bad?


Well, The rats eating too many potatoes stuff was rubbish.
BUT the real and less exciting aspect is that it allows crops to be

sprayed
with even more herbicides.


"GM" iself doesnt allow crops to be sprayed with more herbicide. One
specific type of GM enhigeered crop does. Others dont, for example Vitamin A
rice has nothing to do with roundup. GM is a technique, (or set of, or
meaningless catch-all phrase*), and its as ridiculous to claim that GM is
bad because one set of consequences of it are bad,as to claim that fire is
bad because houses burn down sometimes.

Pete, Angus and other animal rightists who enjoy disrupting conservation
and farming discussion groups seem to want this, and go to some lengths to
achieve it, in order to create the impression that those who disagree with
them have no credibility, i.e. anyone that doesn't support AR ideals is an
unemployable waste of space. Ironic don't you think?

Very sad though, since not everyone has the same freedom, or the thick
skin, and the behaviour of the AR thugs has certainly removed most
contributions to uk.environment.conservation from those working for
conservation organisations. Or "fake conservationists" as the ARists
choose to call them.

Yes and the second item down nicely illustrates the problem. It is the

a herbicide?


Try not to be so selective in your blindness.

Items in the peer reviewed literature would be preferred to the confused
scare stories from environmental groups.


Many of which are based on peer reviewed data.

We still haven't had an answer
from WK as to where the problem might lie, apart from a vague disclaimer
that he wasn't talking about humans. Since we know its a herbicide we
can exclude plants since that is a bit of a no-brainer. So what is
harmed then?

I think you are missing the point. It is not just a question of free
speech, and it is not just a question of speaking for an employer or
not. The important fact is that an academic can declare an affiliation
to an academic institution, yet still speak with academic freedom and
express views that should not be considered as the expressed opinions of
the institution. I find it insidious that you think that an academic
should hide their affiliation from public scrutiny.

Pete,


pete who?

Angus and other animal rightists who enjoy disrupting conservation
and farming discussion groups seem to want this,


Disrupting! favourite topics it looks like. Try to join in saunby,
much better then animal sex videos.

and go to some lengths to
achieve it, in order to create the impression that those who disagree with
them have no credibility, i.e. anyone that doesn't support AR ideals is an
unemployable waste of space.


Completely false assumption, shows how misguided and delusional you
are. All are welcome here.

Ironic don't you think?
Very sad though, since not everyone has the same freedom, or the thick
skin,


Well you are thick I'd agree.

and the behaviour of the AR thugs has certainly removed most
contributions to uk.environment.conservation from those working for
conservation organisations. Or "fake conservationists" as the ARists
choose to call them.


Really. google tells quite a different story. In fact google is good
to look up on your habits.

You get no argument from me on those concerns. In fact I am livid with
the likes of Monsanto for jeapardising a potentially very valuable
technology with initial products that generally have no benefit for the
consumer. I mourn the loss of Flavr Savr tomato paste as a crossfire
casualty.


I consumed quite a quantity of GM tomato puree, when it was available, and
haven't changed into a merman yet :-)
