Ben W. Glass, editor at Clarislaw.com and attorney, did a nice write-up last week of the ShopToEarn situation. He thinks attorney Gerald Nehra made a boo-boo when he wrongly threatened Everyday Finance and me because of our negative reviews of Shop To Earn and Shop To Earth.
He gives a brief background on the original review at Everyday Finance and the threatening emails. Then goes on to say:
Look, it is inanely stupid to attack a critic by threatening to sue them. Because if they have discovered the fatal flaw in your product, then others have as well and you darn well better know what is going on in your prospects mind.
And they answer the objection….
The folks at Shop To Earn Who are Responding to Criticism about a perceived flaw in their product by threatening a lawsuit aren’t thinking right.. if you’ve got a good product, good testimonials and a killer guarantee, then the “white noise” of criticism shouldn’t bother you.
On the other hand, if you are a scammer, then you might be bothered that someone has discovered you.
