    Maybe this is why they made such a cock-up of dealing with complaints about ALAC’s Lisa ad? I’m yet to hear back from them in regard to a decision on my second complaint:

    Good lord there’s a lot of people with far too much time on their hands, it seems. I thought we used to get some crackpot complaints when I was in talkback radio (I recall one particularly lengthy and pompous one complaining I’d denigrated the Royal Family over a remark I’d made about corgis. I realise there’s a fair bitof inbreeding in that particular lineage but I didn’t think it had gone that far).

    Anyhow, there’s little serious analysis of advertising outside of academia so can I recommend an excellent ABC (Australia) program “The Gruen Transfer”, viewable online here.

    Do they ever award costs against a complainant?
