    Hello guys.
    Some days ago a competitor made me a shitty offer for buy my site.
    Of course I refused. The offer was too low.
    Now he's trying to sabotage me.
    He didn't started to do negative seo. Not yet, maybe, I don't know. But really, he's trying to sabotage in other ways.
    For example he's trying to talk shit not about my site, but about those who are related to my site (partnership, my site's friends and so on).
    To tell you the truth... I expected this when I refused.
    But this is mafia. I cannot stand against this.
    So could you please give me some suggestion about how handle this situation? What would you do in my situation for not let his destroy reputation?

    Ignore it and wait for him to get bored, which he will. If he's psychotic and never stops (unlikely), ask him to stop in a very nice and polite way, even compliment his site and say he doesn't need to resort to these tactics to be successful with such a great website. If he refuses, message him telling him to stop now with a list of his PBN domains, and say you don't want to have to retaliate because you don't want to wreck all of the hard work he has put in. He will probably be scared and stop, plus if you were nice still he will be more inclined to feel bad about his actions.

    It's best to wait it out or defuse him with kindness, because any retaliation puts you at risk of even more severe attacks. Anything you do he will try to do back even worse to you. In the end the outcome in this scenario is that both of your sites tank and nobody is a winner.

    The other risk with retaliation is that if he doesn't care about his site he won't give a f*ck about anything you do, but he WILL have more motivation to do worse things to you.

    How do you know it's him? It sounds like it probably is, but just wondering...

    Yeah, try a bit of blackmail and tell him to fuck off lol. Seriously, if you have some decent authority and atleast a bunch of clean links (which I recommend you do ASAP) then it will be pretty hard to get you kicked off the serps.
