You should be sending your concerns to him and I believe that you will get an honest answer.

I believe that the request for concrete evidence is acceptable. BUT if allegations positive or negative are anonymous then they are NOT concrete.

Thank you. I have already made my concerns known to Rod Stradling. He is out of the office until October 3rd. I wrote to him before I wrote on here. He has a co-editor of the magazine who is Fred McCormick and I have made my concerns known to him via this thread. Sometimes he chooses to answer my concerns and sometimes not. Maybe I will have better luck from Rod Stradling.

Those concerns are principally that Mustrad is prepared save up allegations "over a number of years", and then to publish those allegations without attribution - in this case about Peter Kennedy - and then ask for "concrete evidence" to back those allegations up.

As far as opening up a discussion is concerned, I suspect any conclusions that may come out of such a discussion are already known at the Mustrad office. Indeed Fred has hinted as such in this post.
