On 1/08/2008 I contacted several moderators and administrator of Blackhairmedia.com (BHM) in regards to a thread that was posted about our internet based company and about me (owner) in general. I requested that the threads be deleted or at most, the threads containing remarks of defamation/slander/ threat of physical harm be removed. I was not responded to at all and later my username/account had been deleted as well as any reply/thread I have ever posted.
The thread in question was started by a Senior Member of the forum who also works for the company as a advertising sales rep. The thread accused my company of stealing from several members on blackhairmedia.com (BHM) which in fact caused other members to post and threaten physical harm to me and my staff, it caused members to think our company was scamming people out of their hard earned money and has had a negative impact on my company to date (11/2008).
As of today, members or lurkers of the site will ask a question about my company and members with leave negative and defamatory responses without any proof or evidence. The statements will insinuate that our company will steal or scam potential customers our of their money, will send them a product that isn't what they ordered or not to their expectations, ect.
The members that are leaving these comments have never purchased from our company, have no experience with my company at all and are making false accusations according to a thread started by employee of the company that has never had any experience with our company as well.
These links/threads continue to be displayed for the world to see potential customers will post comments stating " I was going to purchase from said company but I won't now". This is of course hurting our business and reputation. The moderators and administrator could care less and have ignored my repeated request for a resolution.
Several members on this site are allowed to break forum rules without any consequences. This of course is not true for all. It just depends on which "click" or popular crowd you fall in. The ladies on this forum have threaten physical harm to me/my staff/company over and over again and it has allowed to go on long enough. One opinion is just that. But allowing one to post an opinion that can cause harm to me, my staff, my business is outrageous and needs to stop!
