I think GMOs are a good thing in general. But the stuff Monsanto has been doing with them are way out of line.

This is usually nothing more then a red herring that anti-gmo people use to push for more regulation on gm crops. Especially given that almost everything they do now is also done by other companies that are never mentioned by anti-gmo activists.

I'm mostly talking about there business practices of making farmers use their GMO seeds and charging them exorbitant prices for it. In one case Monsanto drives carrying seeds accidentally introduced Monsanto GMO seeds into a farmer's crops and the farmer got sue for it. Reports from farmers about them being forced to use Monsanto seeds. Have you seen the documentary Food, Inc.

Nothing recently, but they did make some agent orange for the government during Vietnam. They also bought companies that did terrible things and monsanto is the only corporation able to inherit original sin.
