I was in the middle of my class today and got two SMSes and miss call from my friend. I only managed to check them during the break. It happened that some company from Johor wanted to sue a blogger from Kuching who is now residing in KL because of a blog post that the blogger made months back. I cannot reveal the details on who they are for the time being.
It happened that the blogger blogged about a shop in Kuching that has several branches around Kuching and throughout Malaysia(if not mistaken) asking people to beware of them because of scam. OK… I read that post before and I definitely agree with it because the blogger is not the only one thinks so, I think so too as I personally came across them also but never got scammed because I never bother, so does other people that I know and I also heard people talking about it everywhere asking friends to beware of this company. HEY! We are not 1 year old kid OK?!?! Scam or no scam we know very well ourselves. We are the consumers and we have the responsibility to report something or let people know when something’s not right. They want the blogger to remove the post because it tarnished their image and resulting in loss. If the blogger doesn’t want to remove, then they will file a lawsuit. The problem is that it’s a real encounter else there won’t be story about it.
OH PLEASEEE!! EXCUSE ME! If you are so much of doing a legal business, you surely won’t be using measures or ways that make the consumer feel uncomfortable about the trustworthiness of your company. You should use a “proper” way to do business instead the way you choose are more of the “scammer” way. Blame yourself for using such technique!
Why I know about it? That’s because we are providing the platform for blogging for that blogger. They want to sue us if we don’t provide details of the blogger to them and we have the right of not disclosing the details after consulting a lawyer. SO what!??! Want to sue us too? Saying that we didn’t monitor the things that we host. You might as well sue Streamyx also since Streamyx was the one providing the Internet access to allow the blogger to update. Also since we are reseller only, you might as well go sue the provider of the server that provides the server to us because the provider didn’t check on contents that are hosted in the server.
ONE WORD… STUPID! On the other hand, I think that blogger would be really famous if the identity is leaked hahaha… Did a search on the topic, the blogger listed No.1 in Google for it!! No wonder they want to sue 😛 Hahaha… For now, that’s all I can let you know. So? Think twice before blogging? Or next time, better don’t be so direct?
I hope this issue will solve soon -.-” All the best to the blogger. What do you think of this? Should the post be removed since it’s a real thing that happened? Should the blogger fight on?
Update: The company said that they will give one week grace period. If nothing is done, they will take legal action. However, according to the lawyer that we had consulted, we were told to wait for the legal letter. Guess what?!?!? They even contacted Yahoo and Google to remove the listing. To laugh or to cry?!?! Hmm…
07-07-08: The post is removed but I don’t think this will be the end of the case yet. We’ll wait and see.
