"Agree about ASA, useless as a chocolate teapot."

By design.

Despite the name, ASA is a trade association, not a regulator.

They were setup to avoid govt intervention by providing the illusion of self regulation. The sooner they're rendered redundant by a real regulator with real powers instead of a cardboard cutout run by the very industry it supposedly regulates, the better.
