    Hi, Ms. Marr:

    Your excellent article Understanding Genetic Testing and Life Insurance really struck a chord with me. From Calgary, i’m visiting with friends in Toronto. I used their computer to post a couple of comments on your article. They are quite upset about this, because they work in the life insurance and mutual funds sectors and (a) disagree vehemently with what i said about insurers,(b) one of them is a member of the ADVOCIS and the IFB and the other of the IIROC and neither agree with what i said about those organizatiosn, and (c)they are afraid of companies or SRO regulators somehow linking my posts to them via tracking with cookies or something, and though this sounds far-fetched, they swear this sort of info can and is harvested by SRO regulators and big financial institutions, which i doubt and is ironic in light of the privacy angle of the article!

    anyway, is it possible for you to remove my posts and when i am back in Calgary i will re-post them, minus typos.

    finally, i tend to go a liitle (or a lot)overboard when i have too much eggnog and get on the topic of insurance institions with HQs in Ontario. my wife`s family is from Toronto and tend to bring this irrationality out in me!

    i also meant to say in my 2nd comment for `additional insight, see the CLHIA articles` because saying `for real insight` might make people think i don`t agree with the orginal article and comments. that is far from the case!!! your site`s article is the single best up to date layperson guide to this issue of genetic screening i could find on the web. sorry if i seemed disrespectful — that was not my intent at all. obviously i should not drink and text as it affects my word choice.

    best of luck, and next time when i post i will show more sober mindedness — or at least i will post from my own home computer!

      Sorry for the delay. I was away on a family holiday but I just removed the comments.
