Anything and everything that happens under the Toronto sun.
I'd like to know what the review said. Is there anyway that you can email me a copy of the review? I recently purchased Cortena and I'm not satisfied so any review would be gladly accepted.
I didn't keep the review Ruby, so unfortunately I can't help you with that. However, you can read some other reviews of Contena here:
If you don't come right, you can email me at email@example.com
The same thing happened to my friend. I wish this guy would get shut down!
That is unlikely to happen JS. Whenever someone posts something negative about Contena, Kevin threatens them with legal action.
It's your blog so of course you're entitled to take down blog posts for any reason as you see fit.
I suspect these were empty threats from Contena/Kevin Fleming that probably cause more harm to Contena in the end.
I'm assuming based on your blog that you're in Canada, so realistically Contena would have to hire a lawyer and file a libel claim in Canada and pay legal expenses to do so. And they would have to put their entire business model under a public spotlight (since court filings and court proceedings are public.) The stakes would have to be pretty high for some company to go that route.
Some of the defenses to libel in Canada are truth and fair comment. Obviously, it's hard to know if your negative review of Contena was actually libelous, but I suspect if you were just describing your experiences with them, then you'd be covered by both those defenses.
I totally understand that you'd probably not even want to risk having to defend yourself against a libel claim, since the costs and headaches from that aren't worth. But it's really shameful that Contena threatened you like that, and I suspect you could repost a review of Contena in the future, so long as it didn't devolve into personal attacks or unverified claims that suggest the company is doing something illegal. Saying a company is not good value for money, for instance, is not libelous.
Best of luck with your endeavors and now that I've found your website (for a Contena review) I will check out the rest of it!
I didn't take down the blog post voluntarily Shiny, I was threatened by Kevin. While you are right that a law suit would involve a lot of hassle for Contena, I didn't want to take the chance. Kevin has a lot more money than I do.
Fortunately, I am far from the only one who sees Contena for what it really is and word is spreading fast that the site is a waste of money.
If I was able to help in any way then my work here is done.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you stay a while.
