    Thanks Philip that's an interesting and useful perspective.

    Thanks, Trevor. I am not sure that the US constitution would be my usual starting point for an ethical discussion! Interesting that a framework that allows Guantanamo and executions that horrify any sense of justice can be framed to give a clear lead on this issue...

    Phillip - very interesting, one of the most thoughtful contributions so far.

    I've been having a lot of discussion with young PR practitioners about astroturfing of late.

    Most of them have never heard of it.

    The general questions I get are - what exactly is astroturfing? why exactly is it so bad?

    This post goes a long way towards answering the second question.
