Ian Griffiths' article "Roddick under Internet attack" (25 August) intimating that Body Shop is being harassed on the Internet, misses the mark.

Griffiths quotes my postings. These help demonstrate why the Internet has become an important medium to circumvent corporate and government censorship. We all share the concern that the Internet can degenerate into a vessel for nasty diatribes. On the other hand, it offers the chance for ordinary citizens to be heard who don't have the deep pockets and legal pitbulls of multinationals such as Body Shop.
