Rip-off wanted $7500 for what they call their reputation protection whereby they put up a boiler plate of positive comments. What a sham.

I think what I was alluding to was that I believe that these sorts of sites are bad from the get-go. I think their business plans are likely unethical to begin with, so it’s unlikely that even my suggestions for tweaking their policies would actually move them to improve. Very transparently, they derive their money from causing harm in a lot of cases, and they have no desire to change.

While it’s certainly the goal of every business to be profitable, I think it’s better to choose a business plan that’s going to be symbiotic – something that mutually benefits the public and the company.

Another great one. What happens when you are so consumed and feel so right, are being told you are right, but nothing changes? What is the next step? How do you accept the unacceptable?

I believe it to be best for reputation experts to manage the ethics of negative reputation sites…all of them!
