    Have two gentlemen who are mounting a systematic campaign on RoR , CB & PConsumer all bogus reviews etc etc. One even admits he is not a customer , but old college friend etc

    Anyway the language is quite strong , scam , fraud , should be in jail etc etc. All just nonsense really but as it is based on malice - well these guys can't be reasoned with

    Any suggestions ?? It seems from what I have read , no point bothering with RoR , reviews not removed under any circumstances

    What about CB and Pconsumer , do they ever remove reviews if it should be quite obvious just someone on a vendetta ? ie: if they checked IP addresses , likely all from same etc etc , they are asking me to contact the poster , which seems kind of pointless as I know the individual who is posting under different aliases etc etc

    Work still coming in but it is disappointing how an individual motivated by malice can do this BS

    Thanks for any suggestions

    Suppression is what you're going to need. Having every post removed from each site they post on will get prohibitively expensive unless you have a nearly endless budget.

    Suppression can help push the negatives off the first (and/or second) page and then insulate you from any other negatives they might publish. If they're not getting the desire results (your name libeled) they'll likely give it a second try on different sites.

    Thanks BHopkins for those tips

    It seems that any dialogue with RoR, CB , PCons is just a waste of time , to expensive with their mediation programs etc

    Getting court orders in the USA out of Australia , to much hassle

    These gentlemen will just re post more stuff under the guise of "outraged" consumers
    Thanks for the response BHopkins

    By suppression you are meaning positive reviews on other websites etc

    If someone is on a vendetta no way to make good on RoR, CB or PC - as they will simply post more negative stuff

    And for someone in Australia , getting court orders from a US court , that is quite prohibitive

    So I will work on + ve reviews etc

    Also I am interested in at least trying to get a pattern of deliberately nasty reviews delisted from search engines on Google , yahoo & Bing

    I have spent quite a bit of time looking around for points of contact for Google , yahoo , bing ; can be a challenge so any advice or tips here
    greatly appreciated - thanks

    Do these search engines delist what would by most standards be abusive, offensive & defamatory reviews

    Would really appreciate any tips for getting the large search engine guys to listen to a small guy

    Wouldn't have thought that at my age would be wasting time dealing with the schoolboy level of behaviour & intellect you see on these "review" sites

    Over the years, I have worked with amazon and there is a way we used to scrap of the negative reviews. Working with that assumption, it is therefore true that we have a way through which we can clean those reviews. At times they are good but the wording may just put the client off. Also try to put a ration on the reviews that are made.
