Actually, this whole thing could be resolved if there were more
adequate control on collection of samples.

Isn't it interesting where the labelling keeps coming from. Zirma,
find those words and accusations....

but this crazy
: idea that someone is purposefully and maliciously compromising
: samples

Those words just came from you...nowhere else.

And so did this one:
is, quite frankly, paranoid.

I don't think you are qualified to throw around that label. No
matter how you wish to view this situation and conclusion you want
to draw and decision you wish to make...no matter what words you
choose to refer to those with concerns, none of that changes the lack
of reliability of that collection of those samples. See, a really
good process for collecting samples would eliminate the possibility
for anyone either putting anything into or taking anything out of a
sample. Why...because those possibilities are "controlled" for. It
is not paranoia to call for good science. It is common sense. And
of course, your thoughts that suppliers might doctor their henna
powder or other wise alter it would not be paranoia. They would be
unnecessary thoughts when good controls are in place for data
collection.

You see, this is what the lack of those controls on data collection
leads to...this is what no chain of custody for samples
breeds...suspicion. I am avoiding the suspicion and calling for
controls. Instead of calling names...I am calling for controls.
Instead of calling for people to "put up with it"...I am calling for
a situation that does not leave anything to "put up with."

Put up with it amounts to "shut up and let us do what we want to do
with your stuff." I don't think so. That doesn't even sound healthy.
