Tod Maffin Describes Hewlett-Packard As "nearly laughable"

I suspect Tod will soon get a free Epson printer!

Check out HP's OFFICIAL website.

As in OFFICIAL, and not the CBC kind.

Please provide a source or reference where I said that HP or its products were "nearly laughable."

You're very good at taking screenshot; if I said it, I'm sure you must have a screenshot of it.


You don't have anything to show that I said that?

That's because I never did.

You've implied inaccurately here that Epson has a relationship with me whereby if I criticize a competitor of theirs, I receive free goods from them.

This is not true and, in fact, defamatory.

I would appreciate a change to your headline. (I have never described HP as "nearly laughable" and your inability to provide a source/reference to any such statement proves the point.)

Further, the implication that I receive free products from tech companies for criticizing their competitors is defamatory in nature.

If you are unable to provide a source for this comment (which you won't be able to, because I never said it), I would ask that you make a correction to the headline and story, and provide a posting with an apology.

Two days have passed since I have asked you to make a correction. Within that time, you have continued to both post content and moderate comments.

In this inaccurate post, you have implied that I receive products from technology companies for saying bad things about their competitors.

THIS IS NOT TRUE and, based on your past pattern of distortions about me, I believe is part of your intention to deliberately interfere with my ability to earn an income as a technology journalist and consultant.

I would kindly, but urgently request that you change your headline and post this comment in the body of your original post.

Thank you.

What's your problem?

Tod Maffin's version of absolute power.
I wrote a comment at a famous blog.
Tod didn't like it, and took the intial steps of legal action to have it removed.
He was successful.

It made me an unhappy camper.
And I happen to really like it here.
