Additional Lawsuit Coverage & Updates

Aug 31st

Slashdot - wow...

and SEW forums.

I think some of the stuff posted in SEW forums tends to be a bit more detailed than many other sites. Of course I can not verify the authenticity of the comments there, but when you look at some of the other sites it seems a bit curious why my site was sued when most others were not.

Perhaps due to it's small size? In a comment on my last post a person going by the name of George asked "Could this be a publicity stunt from Traffic Power?"

Also one reporter has been asking me some leading questions which make it seem as though he might be writing something similar to a past article I read.

In other, potentially related, news a person by the name ironiridis just left a comment on my blog that "web-advertising-info.com has been erased. Site's still up, and apache is still serving a 404..."

For those who have not read about the various fake SEO forums, a while ago I made a post about them here.

So find the good in this Aaron. A frilious suit from a bunch of whackos which will likely go nowhere and MAYBE at worst cost you a few grand to defend. Will/has brought you more fame, coverage, and recognition than a few thousands dollars in advertising ever could have. Good job! -Getting sued has its upsides. They say any press in good press! Slashdotted... That's great!

Just don't ignore the deadlines. The whole of the blogosphere agrees with your side in this frivilous lawsuit. But, if you default, you lose.
