This is what happens to bloggers..

On April 4, 2011, in Uncategorized, by Andrea

We post something about a company.

They don’t like it.

They hire an attorney.

They send a “cease and desist.”

Blogger says “I’ll keep it up. My integrity is at stake.”

Blogger’s fans cheer!  “Yay for not sacrificing your integrity!”

Some of Blogger’s family agree: “Ignore it. It’s nothing worth getting in a hurry over.”

Rest of Blogger’s family demands a cave-in: “Think of the children. It’s not worth the fight. You’re right, but they are bigger than YOU.”

Blogger eventually gives in.

Integrity lost.

Company with no actionable claim wins by default.

Web-bullying 101.

    Blogger submits all cease and desists to public forums for legal view.

    Did they send it certified mail? Because otherwise? They didn’t send it.

    Nope. Nothing. In fact. I never saw anything in the mail.

    I saw your site re: a possible fraudulant product earlier today and attempted to return. I’m sorry it is gone. I wanted to say, “If something seems too good to be true it probably isn’t.”

    Shouldn’t be that way. Sucks
