A certain business owner threatened me with legal action today, over some comments made on this blog. As a result, I have removed the comments.
I fought very hard not to censor my site, and I encouraged the business owner multiple times to dispute the negative comments on this site. I even offered to post their rebuttals within the offending comments themselves. They refused each time, however, insisting that I remove the comments, and finally, today, threatening me with legal action.
I do not have the time or money, regrettably, to go to court on this issue. I also cannot determine if the comments are true or libelous. Therefore, the comments must come down, and further comments using that business’s name will be censored, if not deleted outright. Again, I’m very sorry to do this, but for practical reasons, it must be done.
Finally, I will ask that in the future, if you wish to say something negative about a business, you must leave at least a valid email address, and you must have evidence to back up your claims. I also cannot promise that negative comments will not be deleted for the reasons mentioned above.
