Of course...

Many thanks for your email. I have now looked again at the story.

I believe our article is fair and balanced. We present a range of views, many of them positive, and attribute them clearly to their owners which include someone with first-hand experience of polyamory and a respected academic who has carried out detailed research on the issue.

By the strict definition, polyamory can simply be described as having more than one (sexual) relationship at a time. The value judgments that sit on top of this are something which are developed by the individuals and groups who define themselves this way. For this reason I think that whether or not the Philpotts specifically 'identified' themselves this way is not relevant to our exploration of the issue.

Best wishes, and thanks for your feedback which is much appreciated,.
