It's making a mountain out of a molehill that's what it is. You already admitted you didn't read the article before making your unfounded claims... Now it just seems like you're trying to save face.Not wearing a tinfoil hat here. Was just pointing out my perception of a likely conflict of interest. Nothing shocking. I don’t begrudge them for trying to make a buck.
Perhaps next time read more than just the article headline before insinuating a person's up to shady business? Then this whole conversation wouldn't have needed to take place.
