Considering that this slur often comes up, I initially had a line in the article making it clear that I am not accepting sweaty brown envelopes of cash to write this commentary - but decided it wasn't necessary considering the criticisms I put forward, and the fact that I say I'm not pro or anti-GM.

To clarify, no cash changed hands and I'm not doing favours for chums in the industry. These are my opinions.
