If you can't address the issues, why bother posting?

Ummm, how about addressing your use of a mailing location in Hawaii, and using an address in Michigan for a corporation not registered in that state?

False? Who's been falsely accused? Time to put up.

> He's managed to anger the entire online community.

"Entire" is not precisely true. I have a few hundred colleagues who do exactly what I do, which is to research spammers, out them to their providers, and hopefully cost them their hosting. If I've angered a few hundred or thousand spammers along the way, then great!

Now which side of the spam wars are you on?

Hehe. Anybody who ran a simple search on my name would discover multiple postings about the origin of my nickname. Since one of them involves over 3,000,000 miles of commercial air travel in my high-tech career, something tells me your guess is incompetently wrong.

Where exactly is your "corporation" incorporated if not at its Michigan address?

> And as for my Money-Back Guarantee, it's honored by Clickbank.

Fine. A claim on one side. I claim that a guarantee is only as good as one's ability to identify and locate the one who owes you money, and your hiding (remember, you're the one doing business on the Internet, not me) is a red flag. Some people are scared off by red flags, others are braver.

All I do is post data. Drawing conclusions is up the gentle reader.

I see you've been reading

> He can try all he wants to run me out of business.

Boy, you're awful TOUCHY today, aren't you? I post a couple of facts, verifiable facts, and you fly off the handle. Lose a lot of business because of this little post, eh? I doubt it.

I really don't care if you're in business or not, but somebody hiding their location is a possible scam artist.

And certainly not a billionaire. What crapola.

Then you'll thrive. Carry on. Live it up!

What bodily orifice did you pull that speculation out of. I take down spammers. I research on-line entities who have been asked about here and on other forums. Your record is tainted - and you could have chosen to address the issues and clear them up. But no - you went for the ad hominem attack to attempt to divert people's attention from you.

And then you threatened legal action in an email to me, while having very unclean hands yourself. Not smart. I have to admit it's a slow month if I don't get a bluster-filled lawsuit threat by the 15th, and you're a day late for this month, but maybe the IRS tax extension should also apply to lawsuit threats as well. OK. I'll give you the extension. I'm feeling generous.

Yah, the bad guys. If you aren't one, then bully for you.

Where's that corporation registered anyway? "Striking Campaigns, Inc." What state again? Not Michigan.

Not my site.

What spam complaints? I'm not calling you a spammer. Sheesh. What a thin skin.

Where's Striking Campaigns, Inc. incorporated again?

And why did you just forge my name to a post, violating your provider's Acceptable Use Policy?

Kid Billionaire doesn't even know that message boards have logs, probably.

Scams outnumber legitimate biz ops about a bzillion to one, so it's well worth your time.

(you know who you are... you scream "Foul!" when the truth comes out)
        PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT.  It has been done before, but never successfully.  In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
        If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
        NEWS FLASH:  I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday.  I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish.  I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?).  I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!" 
        Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

        Although we may, from time to time, monitor or review discussions, postings and the like on the Friends In Business (Scams 101) Message Board, we are under no obligation to do so.  We are not responsible or liable for any claim arising from the content of any such discussions or postings or for any error, defamation, libel, slander, omission, falsehood, obscenity, pornography, profanity, danger, or inaccuracy contained in any information contained within such locations on the Site.
        You are prohibited from posting or transmitting any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, or profane materials or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law.  You are likewise prohibited from posting any false claims against any company or individual.  We will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity of anyone posting any such information or materials.
        By posting messages and/or content on the Friends In Business (Scams 101) Message Board, you give permission for Lesley Fountain/Friends In Business/Shoestring Success Publications to display, distribute and use the posting and content for publication, advertising, promotion, excerption or example. You grant Lesley Fountain/Friends In Business/Shoestring Success Publications complete, perpetual, but non-exclusive rights to use, archive, reproduce, adapt, modify, distribute, sub-license, repurpose, rework, compile, or offer for sale or resale the messages, postings or content appearing on this site in whole or in part, throughout the world and universe, on a royalty-free basis without remuneration.  If you cannot accept or agree with the terms of service for this website and discussion board, you are advised not to post on this board.
        In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
        And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
