CALL ME a po-faced spoilsport if you wish but I find your "game" of "Rogue Trader" (27 June) deeply offensive. The fact that the story of Nick Leeson's sordid dealings on the stock market has been turned into a film is no reason to put the gloss of playfulness and glamour on criminal activity.

Fraudulent dealings on the world's money markets may be non-violent; victimless they are not. Ask any pensioner reduced to pauper status by the late Robert Maxwell's activities.
