WSJ: Firms Should Resist Urge to Sue Critics

You would think that by now public companies that monkey with their numbers would get the hint: Suing critics almost always backfires.

This is a good article (subscription required).

Now the article is on short sellers but also pertains to flippers. If you sue bloggers because they publish the truth, it only persuades other bloggers to post the truth. In the online world, this is know as the Streisand Effect.

If you want your antics to be published on more than one blog. Sue that blog.

Welcome to a generation raised on the web.
