...The company is out of business. This all seems like such a waste of energy. Why don't you go out and do something positive for the sport and industry...
...Again, if the company no longer exists why all the fuss?
Must be some reason for it?
When a company goes out of business, sometimes the owner(s) establish new businesses under a different name. It is reasonable that a business's prior customers would want to know when this happens. In general, if the customers have been happy with the service of the prior company, they may want to identify the owner's new business(es) so they can do business with him in the future. Small businesses live at the will of their satisfied customers, so the owner(s) should want it to be known that they are continuing to operate under a new company name. Their personal reputation is on the line, and it is right for that reputation to follow them no matter what their business name changes to.
So, you see, communicating this information is "positive for the sport and industry." And much of the information is freely available on the Internet, so people will tend to share that information by posting links on message boards like this.
...As a legal counsel to a large corporation, I know a little bit about slander and libel....I sure hope that you have documented proof...You may just end up pissing me off enough where I get a hold of this Kelly or Hanson and offer my services for free...More importantly, how would the ownership of this forum like to named in a libel suit.
In this quote you claim to have the skills to mount a libel suit, are willing to offer your services for free, and are threatening to sue Sailnet for libel.
He said he knows about individuals who have been threatened with litigation...
Based on your above quotes, I think we all now know that you are one of those who are apparently threatening Sailnet with litigation. Of course, your threat is only as real as the person posing behind the userid of Caribbean2012. So maybe it's nothing, and maybe it's serious. Which is it?
...Doesn't seem right that someone can come onto this site and make these kind of remarks without backing them up without some sort of documented proof...I would like to know:
1. Who they were?
2. What was the nature of each complaint?
3. What was the resolution of each?
...However, you let this cat out of the bag and I have every right to ask for documented proof...
Since you appear to have made the same threat, I think we have the same right to ask you for some documented proof.
1. Who are you?
2. What is the nature of your threat?
3. What are you planning to do to act on your threat?
If you are unwilling to share this on an open message board, then I think you will understand why others don't want to share it either. In my opinion, you are no more righteous than the people here to whom you are directing your threats and insults.
