This article has a terrible title. When you frame scientists as "complaining," you encourage a negative stereotype created and fostered by groups such as the tobacco industry.

I don't think complaining is associated with a negative stereotype—complaints can be perfectly legitimate and rational. Besides, this is the wrong place to discuss this—that is what the talk page is for. This page is intended as a place to give an opinion on the topic of the article.
