Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

The guardians of "high standards" in advertising want more people to complain about online ads. Staff are twiddling their thumbs and generally looking for odd jobs to do in the Online Ads/Scrutiny Of department at the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). "The ASA has received relatively few complaints about Internet advertisements and those that have broken Codes have been amended without the need for heavy handed sanctions," the ASA whinged in its monthly report. Of course part of the reason why this hand-picked crack team of experts has more time to kill than most is that because the ASA can't even summon up the energy to create an e-mail address for complaints. "If people want to complain they write to us at 2 Torrington Place, London, WC1E 7HW," said a spokesman for the ASA. "We don't have the facility for e-mail complaints," he said rather sheepishly. Heavens to Betsy, whatever next? ® Want to bother Tim Richardson?
