    I just received this email form some pharm company, stating my site has a 2 links in users profiles that have resulted in a 90% loss in his companies earnings. I have 3 days to take action, by either removing the links and code or terminate my site. Is this guy retarded, I told him to write back in a less threatening manner and to also look at the other 173 forums linking to his shitty site, and I might consider it. Of course I will remove them (don't need the shit on there) but the tone pisses me off - I'm really worried :p

    Its not your responsibility and he comes off as a prick so I'd just leave it up and ignore the email.

    You should also tell him that instead of blaming you like that if he wants to make some money he should learn some SEO instead of pawning off his problems on other people.

    WTF are they bitching about?

    The web is a big dirty link ball - they can't go crying when someone creates a link.

    Tell em to go fuck a sheep.

    Did G**gle CEO went down on his knees and respectfully begged for his appointment to tell him what was the exact cause behind the penalization of his site or whatever? :D

    Ask him to send you the exact proof that his loss was exactly 90 percent (or whatever) BECAUSE of what G did to him and that it was 100% directly related to the said links?

    (Take good legal advice above everything that we say here, because that's your lifeline in this case, I suppose).

    Penalized for only 2 links? That 's impossible. There are another reasons for sure (if they really lost 90% earnings ).

    Yeah I think the guys a prick waiting for a reply, I asked him to prove it too and said I'd think about removing them and he has 3 days to reply. Don't have time for these sorts

    I just checked that pharma site... there doesn't exist any name that the person uses. Ask him to send a fax duly signed with ALL relevant facts about the allegations, and that you are also considering legal advice for his BASELESS hurtful and insulting words! :D Ask him to fax you on the company's letterhead all facts immediately within 48 hours, so that you will consider whether he is just an imposter or the real company man.

    Whatever, take good legal advice before you do anything! :) You might just make some money out of his email to you! :D He has said toooo much in that email, you see!

    P.S.: Is there any email service equivalent to the authenticity of a FAX that will hold good in a court of law (so that you don't have to provide anyone your fax details)? (i.e., his email can be used against him successfully in the court?) Something like a digital signature that some banks use...
