An email from SueEasy
This morning I received an email from SueEasy, a website about which I've posted previously:

Hi,
This is Andrew Richards, Manager Operations at SueEasy.com
We would like to express our discontentment regarding your entry about our
company: http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/weblog/permalink/sue_easy/
We are NOT a hoax of any kind. We have several respected law firms and
attorneys signed up with our service & we were hand picked by Michael
Arrington
(http://www.time.com/time/specials/2007/article/0,28804,1733748_1733758_1735848,00.html)
at TechCrunch.

here's some press:

Please do not make sweeping statements and write false stories about things
you haven't reserached. We'd appreciate it, if you took the link down
please.

Sincerely,
A. Richards
SueEasy.com

To which I replied:

Dear Andrew,
Thanks for your email, though it puzzles me. I state a number of times in my post that SueEasy is NOT a hoax.
Can you please indicate, specifically, what you believe to be the inaccurate statements in my post.
-Alex Boese

I've run into this problem before. Companies complain to me after seeing their name on my site, because they assume that EVERYTHING I discuss on the site must be a hoax, even if I state that it's not. We'll see where this leads.

You just need to be more careful and make sure you 'reserach' these companies before you post about them. tongue wink

Sounds like an "interesting" situation. I hope you'll keep us appraised how things develop.

There is a very easy way to find out if they are an hoax or not... you just make some fun of them and see if they are true to their name!

Maybe they'll sue you?

Why don't you sue them for false accusations?
Posted by Phil  on  Mon Jun 16, 2008  at  09:43 PM
You should sue them for being dumb and illiterate.

Can you use SueEasy to sue them for causing you "emotional damages" and "manic depression" brought about by false accusations which roughly amounts to eleventy bajillion dollars?

If you need any help in bringing an action for harassment, may I recommend a company which helps with this kind of thing?

"We'll see where this leads."
In a lawsuit against them for defamation and slander.

They may not be a hoax, but judging by the way they DIDN'T research your article properly, and can't even spell research, they are incompetent.
Posted by Nona  on  Tue Jun 17, 2008  at  07:22 AM
What a bunch of clowns! Can't read, can't spell. This is hardly going to encourage anyone to take them seriously.

Alex, I'm behind you all the way, like that time you printed up those tee-shirts covered with Mickey Mouse, and then sold them to me, along with all those fake dvds from the trunk of your Electra 225. Feed 'em fish heads

SueEasy sounds more like SueLazy. They didn't even read your article. You were far too polite in your reply. I would have slammed them.

Happens to other sites as well. Which can be very funny:

read it and weep

Sounds to me like they are very quick off the mark when it comes to action without research. Hardly the sort of place I'd go to research a law firm. Merely my opinion of course.
