'Since your recent article on Ian Salisbury's ill-advised complaint to the OFT about the Register of Architects Accredited in Building Conservation (AABC), you have given full rein on your letters page to the detractors of the AABC. In contrast, hardly anything has appeared in its defence.

It is regrettable, therefore, that you only published a small part of the letter from AABC registrar Anne L Kepczyk (AJ 01.09.05). The full text (on your website) was a point-by-point rebuttal of the whole of the original article and by not printing it you effectively denied the AABC the right of reply.

Some of us have invested the necessary time and effort in becoming accredited, and those who are now complaining so bitterly could do the same if they wanted, instead of pursuing a wrecking campaign.
