I must admit as soon as I realised what was going on I could think of a lot of solutions to how to post in future - but I really need a solution for the previous posts. It is pretty bad because one of the respondents to my post actually said that my client was an idiot for requesting what he had and he also went into the site noticed that the client was collaborating with another corporation and completely pilloried them as well for being involved with him. We are talking about major players in the industry they are in here, not small or even medium business and if you search by the product or the website name the number 2 listing is emails calling them both idiots. No being careful in the future is going to undo the damage that post is having - only removing the references to my client and their partner will.

As a subcontractor, I usually do not post queries about sites unless I have the primary contractor/client's permission. Then, I usually have the site in a test area -- for example: http://me.com/testing/. This is a public mail list, not private correspondence and it's too bad you're in trouble now. You might want to find a test area to post pages/files for critique and/or troubleshooting so as to avoid this problem in the future. You may also want to reconsider what you write and/or ask regarding a site. I don't run the list or have anything to do with it other than to use it and learn from it. But, my approach to this and any other list has always been to try and post only those things that are meant for public record. Otherwise, it's like that spilled milk -- once it's spilled, all you can do is try to mop it up. -- <abbey /> -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
