In the period between 17 June and 24 December 2009, we posted articles by Suzanne Tindal that referred to Mr Thana Velummylum.
Some users posted their own comments in response to the articles using our "Talkback" facility. Unfortunately, some users crossed the line by posting defamatory comments about Mr Velummylum.
So, we want to set the record straight. We at ZDNet Australia do not support or accept any of the defamatory comments by those users. CBS Interactive acknowledges that Mr Velummylum says that the comments are unfair, misleading and false and has removed the comments from the website. We wish to apologise to Mr Velummylum and express our regret for any hurt or damage to his reputation he suffered as a result of our readers using our Talkback facility, and accept that the material contained in the comments by our users caused Mr Velummylum hurt and offense.
