“Yes, what a great idea! It'll work better than a hamster wheel, especially when I am attempting to watch "The Mentalist" ;-)”

“Great piece! Well done for sticking to your guns on the TV - and I have to say, your apartment building is lucky to have community minded tenants like you.”

“Thanks, Farah! One reader brought up the idea of a TV powered by a stationary bicycle. I could live with that...”

“This article makes it so heartbreakingly clear what young women are up against in terms of societal expectations, mixed messages and brutal consequences for failing to act twice their age. This needs to be recognised, and addressed on an urgent basis. Well-written and well-observed - thanks, Jarrah.”

“Thank you for your acknowledgement of the misinformation in the title of your post. I appreciate, as I know others will, that you have taken the time and effort to change the title and to understand why people objected to it in the first place. I hope you have a good experience in Bangladesh.”

“Absolutely correct, Adnan Firoze. I have been wondering at this rather misleading headline and the content of the article, and I am glad that you have sent this more accurate assessment of the situation in Bangladesh.”

“The headline of this article is incredibly misleading. Firstly, the problem in Bangladesh is one of malnutrition among children, not 'many people' (i.e. children and adults) 'starving' as is stated in this rather sensationalist headline. Secondly, the government and non-government organisations in Bangladesh have already been focusing on this issue, and to imply that the visit of a celebrity chef on behalf of 'Save the Children' is somehow going to raise awareness in Canada and thereby miraculously remedy the situation not only undermines the efforts already underway, it also has a distinctly patronising tone to it. In fact, despite being a developing nation, Bangladesh has already received considerable recognition for the progress it has made towards achieving the Millenium Development Goals - it is, in fact, a success story! So please take more care when vetting the content of articles by your contributors when they write on issues - in this instance, development - on which they are NOT experts. Thank you.”
