Mr Mark Simpson of Richmond complained that an article about the futurologist Marian Salzman was inaccurate when it stated that she invented the term metrosexual.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction and apology, in addition to removing the online version of the article:

The term metrosexual was invented by Mark Simpson, a journalist, and not by Marian Salzman, as we asserted in Stella on January 7 because of an editing error. Apologies.
