Found this just now and felt it was amusing enough to share. Evidently the consequences of a bad review on an internet forum strike again.
Urologist sends a lawyer to shakedown a forum that had a bad review for the doctor on it.
You have permitted these inaccurate and negative postings to appear on the Website without seeking to verify the veracity of their contents.
Mr. Benjamin demands the usual suspects:
Consequently, on behalf of our client, we hereby demand that (1) you immediately remove the negative content posted by your member "txhog", together
with all related threads and postings, from the Website, (2) thundersplace.org immediately cease and desist from any further derogatory postings of
any kind about Dr. Elist, (3) you immediately provide us with the name and contact information of the user posting such disparaging comments, and (4)
you post an announcement in a conspicuous place on the Website acknowledging that the defamatory statements have been removed due to your inability to
verify their accuracy. Failure to comply with the foregoing demands will leave our client with no alternative but to take action and seek all legal
remedies available to him.
Mr. Benjamin's letter on behalf of Dr. Elist bears several prominent signs of aggressive bogosity. First, the letter utterly fails to specify what
statements of fact in the forum post are false. You know my mantra: vagueness in defamation threats is a hallmark of meritless thuggery.
