Please understand, it was not my intention to cause offence to you by saying what I said. I just wanted to respond to your post, because it seemed

On the subject of human trafficking, my spidey sense, if you will, is rarely triggered by media reportage. There is no angle with a story like this,
no endgame for the media organisations covering the stories. It is simply the case that it is a widespread problem, which people are desperately
unaware of, precisely because of the victimology involved.
I am really sorry that what I said made you feel anything other than respected, and I will endeavour to make sure that never happens as a result of
