Lawsuit threat from CEI America

I got a call from Legal Consul for CEI America today complaining about the offending posts about the company. Throughout the conversation he was trying to give me numerous hints that if the comments are not removed the next step for them was a legal action against me.

Hence I had to remove all the content. Its surprising that within one year of the website being live not one soul from this company who enjoyed working there had the heart to write a good opinion about them. Forget that, there is hardly any website at all where there is a good opinion about this company!

Makes you wonder what these guys do for a living!

This post is to report that I received a legal action letter from Adequare Inc today. The letter threatened to file a lawsuit against me if I do not delete all the comments from the

Since I cannot afford the expense of fighting back I have removed the posts from the website.

Now you can email the people posting opinions on the forum's undergone its spring season upgrade.

The upgrade now makes it possible for people posting on the forum to tag their email addresses along with their posts/questions. If others are interested to talk to you further on your opinions or question they can now pick your email addresses and mail you directly.

I believe this will be immensely helpful for people who want to desperately talk directly to someone who has already worked for the particular Goolti (Desi consultant) company or knows quite a bit about the company.

I've received several emails from users to provide email addresses of the people who posted their opinions on the forum. This is an upgrade to help such users out.

The spring season will see several more upgrades to which will increase the usability and the user friendliness of the site. Stay tuned.

P.S. - To protect the email addresses of the users from falling into the hands of the spammers the email addresses are not directly published on the site.

Avoiding the Login

I have been consistently being told via user emails that one of the first things I should do it get users to login into the site. Several times I myself feel that thats the way to go.

Disgruntled employees from a Goolti (desi consulting) companies will time and again try to impersonate as someone else and keep slandering the company and its Management. Up till now I've been continuously monitoring and mentoring the forum to detect these slandering and defaming posts and deleting them promptly.

I agree that getting users to login will enable be to determine and restrict these posts. However, I don't see how will it stop such attacks totally. If someone wants to defame some company he/she can open a fake email account and start posting under impersonating names. Given this fact there is absolutely no need to let the users create a login id on the site.

I guess the best way to keep the forum clean from anti-social elements is to keep moderating it affectively. And I guess I am doing that.

I would like to know what the users think of this. After all if majority of the users express their desire for a login I will uphold their demands and enhance the site for login functionality.

Monday, February 26, 2007 is up again

The site is up and running again.


Downtime regretted

There has been a programming messup due to which the site is down today. It will be back up by tonight. Inconvenience is regretted. Please bear with me for today!

Another attack of profanity

Last 2 days I was traveling back from Pune to New York after a very satisfying vacation. These 2 days I could not check the site since I was in transit. Right on these very days of transit there was a profanity attack on the site.

I would like to apologize to all my readers /contributors for this and would like to assure them that I will make all the needed efforts to avoid such attacks in the future. As of now all the offending content has been removed and the site is back to normal.

Thanks for all your continuing support and contribution.

Browse Goolti companies Alphabetically

I get numerous mails from users/readers who asked whether they can browse every opinion posted on rather than just the first 20 opinions which are posted on the dashboard.

This functionality is now available. A new link "Browse Goolti companies alphabetically" is up and enables you to browse Goolti companies by their starting alphabet.

You can now read all the opinions/reviews which were ever posted on

Fighting profanity on the site

I understand that there has been heavy profanity/swear words/spam on the site. Someone has been continuously using the anonymous posting functionality to completely overwhelm the board at the homepage itself.

Please be assured that I am working towards a solution to this and am currently developing a profanity filter. This filter will completely block out profane words and even the posts. However, if any of the readers have a better idea to block profanity please let me know. I will be more than glad to implement any feasible idea.

Please be assured that will continue to work towards enlightening Indian IT professionals.

Threatning by some lawyer

I've been getting repeated anonymous mails and also some messages on goolti opinion board that if I don't close down the site a lawsuit will be filed against it.

Wow! I didn't expect that the site will get popular in so less time that people will feel threatened with its success. This only doubles my confidence to keep promoting the site further and help the Indian IT professionals like me and all the others in making prudent decisions.

I am not going to be afraid of any lame threats of lawsuits by some lame ass guy who anonymously calls himself a lawyer and sends threatening e-mails.

I only want to say to such people that 'Grow Up', its time now.

I also want to extend thanks to all the people who are contributing their experiences and opinions on the site and in the process helping the Indian It professional community in general
