    I was talking recently to a strata manager about a new service that’s springing up around their territory – I call them strata advocates – and she said “Oh, you mean those professional pains in the a***.”

    Your selective criticism is a bit of a worry. Do you understand how journalism works? As a writer you have a limited amount of space to get the major points of your story across – usually in a specific brief – and you can’t reference every other nuanced alternative.

    However, if you did a little research (you know, that thing where you check your facts) before you started bashing out abusive emails, you would realise I have sung the praises of of professional mediators many times in my columns.

    Perhaps it would help our readers if you explained where your professional perspective lies in all this. Conflict of interest? Not quite, but close enough in this world of “fake news”.
