This story seems very pertinent......

Indeed, thanks for posting that detailed account. It is a bit sad it took so long to bring to action. I was told many, many years ago by trade contacts who did not approve but could not denounce it themselves and tried my best to wake up the authorities in Italy. Which was tough as on-line translators were pretty useless then and my only Italian is Pizza, Pizza! Still I did name those involved in the scam so perhaps had a small part in getting things rolling. I guess court cases are still taking time...

You are a sweetie Sue. Have to admit my campaigning days are passing. I have still go so much material to get onto the web that I have to use up the rest of my span on that. In any case, fighting these problems absorbs too much time and energy... and you acquire some nasty enemies. But it is so nice to know that what I have done in the past is appreciated so much, thank you.

If your enemies are the nasty ones, you know your fight is right Frank.
