What to do if a company is threatening me for posting on the forum.

Lately, I have been getting several emails from several Goolti users about companies threatening them to remove the posts they have written on the forum. These users are mostly first time entrants into US and are looking for information on the forum.

The companies that do not want to be mentioned in the forum, quickly threaten the users with a lawsuit. The users get scared and write me emails to remove the posting.

I would like to tell all Goolti users that these are tricks played by companies to scare you off and remove their tainted pictures from the forum. Don't fall for this at all. If a company is serious about a lawsuit it will hire a lawyer and that lawyer will send you an official Cease & Desist (C&D) letter. An email carrying a American sounding name at the bottom and a lawyer sounding degree cannot be an official declaration of a lawsuit.

If one does not respond to the C&D, only then the company can move ahead and launch a lawsuit.

So if you get threatening emails from some Goolti company, absolutely do not worry. They are just playing with your mind. Just direct them to the legal section of Goolti.com and I will take care of the rest.

Removing the BusinessWeek Banner

Businessweek wanted to produce a H1b Fraud related story. It wanted some volunteers to come forward and tell their stories. However, after running the banner for more than 2 months I couldn't get anybody. Nobody seems to be willing to speak to the Media about the hassles they go through when dealing with Desi Consulting firms. Its sad to see this. Makes me think whether I am fighting for the right cause.

I gave up all hope and removed the banner today.

Out of connectivity

Apologies for late postings. I was out of internet connectivity for a while and hence couldn't post.

C and D from Objectwin

This time is ObjectWin technologies. I got a letter threatening a lawsuit. In the letter they even mentioned that if I display that letter somewhere on the web, they'd sue me for Copyright Infringement.

My advises to all to deal with this company with extreme caution.

Paging introduced - Popular Demand

I've introduced paging with the comments on popular demand. Some goolti companies have more than 30 comments for them. Loading all the comments at one time was becoming quite a performance hit on the servers. Also, it was not a good user experience. Hence, paging has been introduced.
