How to lose customers: sign them up to dating sites 

[Cross-posted] Here’s one going around the , courtesy of my friend and colleague Patrick Harris in London. The basic story: dude gets bad service from company. Blogs about it. Company decides to get revenge by signing him up to heterosexual and homosexual , including writing derogatory profiles about him. He blogs about that and manages to do a reverse DNS look-up to trace the sign-ups back to the company. Company sends lawyers’ letters demanding he take the blog posts down and threaten to sick the cops on him.
   The company is Sky Handling Partners. Read more at Damien Mulley’s blog about this sorry case of bad relations. And bravo to Mr Mulley for his insistence in keeping his blog posts up.
   I hope the Gardai do get involved and haul this company over the rocks for . Mr Mulley, I hope, will consider dragging Sky Handling to the Irish courts for . There is plenty of evidence, willingly supplied by .
   Pissing off one of ’s biggest and longest-running bloggers is not a good idea, and providing him with the rope to hang yourself is a worse one.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
