Chris, the title here was a paraphrase of the article linked to and that article referenced having fun with Ms. Morton's claims, not fun at her expense. There has been no rudeness towards the woman either here or at the links and by putting her claims out there, she opens herself to whatever was said about those claims. The only cheap shot in this thread was the one you took against Dave.
What it really sounds like you are saying is that no-one can criticize what she says and does, that her status as tireless campaigner fighting fish farming entitles her to misrepresent information in any way that suits her cause. What you are forgetting is that for years she has been making quite nasty representations against farms and the regulating agencies. Those that do not believe in her are now standing up and combating those claims far more vigorously than they have in the past and exposing the inaccuracy and inappropriateness of her presentations. She does not have the right to misrepresent the facts and she is not immune from having her misrepresentations challenged.
Indeed, there are many who think her actions have been one of the larger obstacles to actually finding a solution to the problems in our fish stocks. In spite of her attempts to present it as such, it was not the Cohen/Morton Inquiry on Fish Farms and it's purpose was not to sandbag fish farms. We would have been far better off keeping responsibility for farms at the local level and we would be far better off if much less attention was focused on her antics and much more on all the other factors that affect the stocks. The problem is not rooted in fish farms and it's well past time we moved on to deal with the real roots.
