Hi, Eric. I want to clarify that I wasn’t making fun of anyone and am happy to give resources (I link a lot of papers in my articles), I was simply responding to the idea that I don’t research my articles when that’s simply not true. It’s frustrating as a writer to spend a long time working on something only to be told I’m not putting effort into my facts. The science discussed can oftentimes be very complicated and I can admit that I make mistakes which I try to correct, but in this case I wasn’t stating anything not grounded in fact or that experts in the field don’t support themselves.

In any case, I’m sorry if my response seemed harsh.

Ella.
