In Response To: Re: Stores Online (Tamikia Alford)
I'm glad you had time to do your homework. I did not have a laptop to do research while I was sitting listening to Stores Online talk about their great software. If you're a technie, perhaps you could figure it out. I'm not dumb when it comes to computers, but Stores Online's own tech people couldn't figure out how to offer "free shipping" on just one category, featured items or sale items. That's a problem in my book, especially after dealing with several lengthy tech support sessions. I think that a promise that you could have your site up in two weeks was deceptive...suggesting free Drop Shippers through them was deceptive.....easy to use software was deceptive... I'm glad someone was able to figure out how to be successful with all the limitations. I am, another dissatisfied Stores Online customer!

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
