Received a legal threat on my blog
In the last couple of days I've received two solicitors letters. These object to content that was written on my blog more than two years ago. I reviewed a free training session from his property training company which proved to be okay on the day but I later found to be sub-standard advice and so I posted a negative review.
He claims 'defamation' and has threatened to sue.
The content isn't abusive in any way, but refers to the Neuro Linguistic Programming methods that trainers use to persuade audience people to part with large sums of money based on false scarcity amongst other things. We're talking many thousands of dollars here.
Basically, I called him out on his methods and he didn't like it.
I can't promote a reviewed product positively when I think it's poor and contains dubious sales tactics, including shaming and ridiculing of the audience (there's a video showing this).
I've responded and taken legal advice, which suggests I have nothing to worry about as the article is now timed-out (written more than a year ago) and is my honest opinion, which I claim as fair comment and in the public interest.
Anyone else get legal threats?
