The author reflects on the issues concerning Internet advertising agents in Australia. He asserted that he had doubts on whether some people still respect agents. He cited the attempts of the Advertising Federation of Australia to regulate the industry through accreditation and education as a light at the end of the tunnel. However, he rejected rumors that the journal is anti-advertising, claiming that whatever they had in print were of pure opinion of the staff.
