And you believe this stuff. . . .?? Why??? Taken directly from the Rip off Report website: "As is our policy, we never remove reports even when they are claimed to contain defamatory statements, and even if the original author requests it." ". . . we will never agree to remove reports, even if someone can show that a report is probable or inaccurate. Under this policy no reports are ever removed . . ."
Please consider the source when considering purchasing a product from a company that may be listed on the Rip off Report. This website is strictly a forum for ANY and ALL upset, irrational, emotionally unstable consumers to vent their frustrations. In fact, most of the complaints on this site are regretted by their posters. In a society where you can say what you want and it's in print and out to the world before you even have a chance to think about it, the Rip off Report and any website that allows this stuff to be published and then allows it to remain published should be ashamed of itself and should be legally held accountable for its actions. Or in many cases, it's inactions. It's truly a shame that a company has to spend money and resources to fight the dribble from the fingers of an irate customer that has written garbage against a decent company only because a company wouldn't give in to their ridiculous demands at what at times could be considered extortion.
OK, maybe you are thinking that the Rip off Report is innocent and just a venue for people to vent and the author should be accountable for what they publish. I would agree with this point of view, if it weren't for one thing: The Rip off Report hides it cowardice authors behind the First Amendment. First Amendment?? You've got to be kidding me. Even the founding fathers saw the possibility of extortion, blackmale, slander and libel.
Why is the Rip Off Report allowed to cover up the felons behind these accusations? I know that the Rip Off Report is not the only website out there allowing this garbage to continue. However, they are the premier offender of decency and morality on the internet. And the most blatant about throwing the lack of decency laws on the internet in the faces of decent human beings and companies. When does it all stop? Perhaps when there are no decent companies out there to buy from. Or, the companies left standing must charge an outrageous price for their product because they have to constantly defend themselves against these defamatory writings.
Don't get me wrong: I truly believe that there should be some way to keep companies honest. Everyone should have their day in court. But what kind of wild, wild west justice is it to slam a company on the internet, whether justifiable or not. There is no way for the company to face its accuser. That's not justice. Or maybe that's what they call justice in some countries, but not ours. So, if you have a beef with a company, work it out.
Don't resort to the cowardice writings of babbling idiots to try to destroy a decent company that works hard to just make a living. And if you can't work it out, there are legal and ethical ways to solve the problems you may have with a company. Understand the problem doesn't just lie with the slamming of companies. Countless teenagers have committed suicide over the ramblings of other jealous humans that resort to cowardice slamming on the internet.
It's a problem that needs to be resolved and it needs to be resolved now. Wake up, American legislators. Have we really evolved into a country that devalues our ethics and morals so much as not to pass laws to protect our citizens and companies? I hope and choose not to believe we have sunk so low.
