Update 2008-10-01: A colleague received a call from a person representing one of the companies previously mentioned in the blog post located on this page. He forwards the call to me, and among other things I get to hear:
– You don’t understand a thing … If this text is not removed from Google within thirty minutes I will call your manager at Tandberg Data … What would you say if I wrote that Krefting at Tandberg Data is discrediting XY in XY’s company blog? … You don’t understand a thing
No, I don’t understand a thing. All I wrote is true, and I changed the text when I got an explanation from one of the companies that were mentioned in this article.
This is not the first time I am threatened by a spammer, but it is the first time anyone has involved my employer in the mix. Creative.
Spammers are scum. But if it is like XY says, which I have no reason not to believe in, that it is a customer that have abused their system, then it is sad for XY. But I can’t quite understand what you think you can achieve by calling and threatening my or my employer?
Update 2008-10-10: I have received an apology from the company in question, and consider the case in question to be done with.
Update 2010-01-28: But apparently it is not, since the bastards continue to spam me. See my Swedish spammers pages for details.
