There are some excellent writers who have participated in this thread. If you feel that your story hasn't been represented in POZ, why not write it up and submit it for publication?

Amen, brother!  With Peter's and Bob Icke's and Regan's help, that's exactly what I did. Many here thought AMG wasn't getting the press it deserved, and I put up good effort to get our story out there.

Wow--did this spin out of control or what?  As for protesting too much, I've said I respect her.  What else can I do, canonize her?  I respect any PWA who comes out to family, friends and/or the public.  I respect that she stepped in with her money to support Poz.

You can actually LIKE something and still be critical about certain aspects.  This has never been a personal attack.

As for this issue of Poz, if you look further up the posts you'll see exactly where I said I thought I saw just too much Regan.  But here, let's look again:

   Sex Crime   
    by Jennifer Morton,Regan Hofmann and Oriol R. Gutierrez Jr.
More HIV-positive people are being criminally prosecuted for not disclosing their HIV status before sexual encounters—sometimes even when there is no intent to harm and no transmission occurs. We’re also getting locked up for not disclosing to dentists and for spitting, biting, marrying—even failing to take meds.

   The Tales of Hofmann   
    by Regan Hofmann
Three and a half years after publicly disclosing her HIV-positive status on the cover of this magazine, POZ editor-in-chief Regan Hofmann reveals deeper insights into her life as a journalist, an advocate for positive people—and a woman living openly with the virus. Here, an excerpt from her memoir, I Have Something to Tell You.

   Fighting for Our Freedom   
    by Regan Hofmann
 Catherine Hanssens, executive director of The Center for HIV Law and Policy, discusses HIV criminalization. (Watch video.)

I'm VERY happy about seeing both the article about criminalization of HIV and the issues with Hep C.

I never said if I cared at all if she was rich or not or if she posted here--or even READ these forums---I could care less.  All I've said all along is that I'd like to see Poz show a more diverse set of viewpoints that didn't always include Ms. Hofmann's.

If that makes me an outcast or in someway shows that I've made some terrible pozzie faux pas, so be it.

Not personal--no chip, just a challenge for more diversity.  With that, I'm tired of the back and forth and the mirad of misinterpretations.

I asked that Poz show a more diverse editorial viewpoint.  Sorry if it pissed people off.

Let me get this straight - so you think she is writing too many articles?  This may not be what you're saying with this particular post but, if it is, let's keep in mind that Poz is not Vanity Fair with an unlimited budget.  It may not have the finances to hire a writer for every story.  It's pure economics.  That said, it must suck to have 3+ story deadlines for the same magazine issue.

It's good to hear that POZ is open to non-staff writers (such as Basquo). 
That's it for me with this particular thread.  ;)
