What is the point of science without humanity? – I am appalled by the language from this supposedly professional person to a fellow human and scientist. Where is your accountability for bullying and unacceptable behaviour? An apology is the least your blog editor Ofek should consider.
"The Blog editor of Biology-Online dot org asked me (DNLee) if I would like to blog for them. I asked the conditions. He explained. I said no. He then asked "Are you urban scientist or an urban whore? "
It wasn’t just that he called me a whore – he juxtaposed it against my professional being: Are you urban scientist or an urban whore? Completely dismissing me as a scientist, a science communicator (whom he sought for my particular expertise), and someone who could offer something meaningful to his brand.What? Now, I’m so immoral and wrong to inquire about compensation? Plus, it was obvious me that I was supposed to be honored by the request.." reposted from fb
