Think of the Kittens

Sometimes lawsuits are not enough. ;)

A while ago Edward Lewis (of found a rather unpleasant hate site about him which existed right up until around the time he pulled his news coverage of Traffic Power and business practices.

I believe the fake SEO forums went down around the same time I was sent the paperwork to drop the lawsuit against me in agreement for me removing any and all content in any way related to Traffic Power from this website.

Due to feedback from friends I decided to fight the lawsuit. I still don't know how in the hell I could comply even if I wanted to since they have refused to give me ANY specifics and I do not know all the various names they operate under.

Holding predicably true to form, it took no time at all for an SEO Book smear campaign to start up. I even have my own hate group now!

If you find me leaving nasty comments on your blog realize that it is probably someone trying to help me out.

You may actually be able to counter-sue them if you can get some solid proof that this was them. A lot of companys play the bluffing game with lawsuits, but sometimes it backfires on them. A recent example is Diebold who threatened to sue someone and then ended up paying $125,000 in damages themselves.
