Are retractions actually worth anything? They tend to be buried somewhere in the fine print where nobody ever looks.

Subject: Editorial Lattitude
However, does anyone know if there's anything I can do, perhaps legally, to
get the editor to print a retraction of the offending item? I've written to
him expressing my feelings, and asking him to print a retraction. I've also
responded to an email asking me to write another article by saying that I
won't consider doing so until I receive a reply to my letter. Needless to
say, I have had no response whatsoever.
