[Cross-posted] Here’s one going around the blogosphere, 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 dating sites, 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 customer 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 fraud. Mr Mulley, I hope, will consider dragging Sky Handling to the Irish courts for libel. There is plenty of evidence, willingly supplied by Sky Handling Partners.
Pissing off one of Eire’s biggest and longest-running bloggers is not a good idea, and providing him with the rope to hang yourself is a worse one. Posted by Jack Yan, 11:34
Yikes. What an original way to get revenge on a customer - and shoot yourself in the head!Post a Comment

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.
