Memo to greedhead companies

When you’re doing Bad Things, and some blogger writes accurately about the Bad Things you’re doing, it might be tempting to sue the blogger to get him to shut up about the Bad Things you’re doing.

I get that. I do. But you really should ignore that temptation.

Why? Well, consider:

  • You lose in court.
  • Along with losing in court, you end up having to pay $50,000 to the lawyers of the guy you sued.
  • And now, many, many more people know about the Bad Things you’re doing. And most of them, who had no opinion of you one way or the other before, now think you’re a douchebag and won’t buy your product.

But, you know, other than that, no special reason.
