In January this year the President emailed every member of the APS attacking RAPS for sending out ‘scurrilous’ emails, even before he bothered to contact or speak to us. Read about it here
Now he is accusing us of:
…. “sending out unsolicited anonymous emails” but haven’t they done the same? At least our respondents can unsubscribe!
… “espousing wildly incorrect assertions regarding the GM” – all we’ve done is put the case for the No vote – which they haven’t done for members, which is a prerequisite in a democracy.
…”As scientist-practitioners, it is our professional responsibility to check the credibility, validity and accuracy of any information ” – we have provided evidence – where is theirs?
The rest is not worth mentioning.
He must really those governance changes passed!
