Just thought I’d draw attention to the fact that Paul has updated his review on a fat loss supp called “Proactol.”

It’s worth reading in full, if for no other reason than to see how low some supp company reps will go to suppress legitimate critiques of their products.  Fortunately, Paul isn’t easily intimidated. 😉

P.S. Speaking of legal threats, this is as good a time as any to link to The Most Hilarious Response To A Legal Threat I’ve ever read.  Enjoy!

  1. That was terrific. Please keep us up to date on any further exchanges with Proactol.

  2. It’s great to see that Paul is sticking to his “guns”. He has done nothing but state the facts. If Proactal has studies that dispute these facts, then they should make them available.

    Great work!!!!

  3. Well if Paul has any more problem with the Proactal people, he can just turn you loose on them. It would be what they deserve!!!!!

    I’ve been in your headlock twice before. I’m sure they wouldn’t like it.LOL

  4. Yup… while folks like Darren Beale may not believe it, our goal is to be fair. We’re not out to “get” anybody. If the facts warrant it, we’ll give a product a thumb’s up. If a product is a total rip – then that’s what we’ll write. And if – as in the case of Proactol – there aren’t enough facts to back up the claims, then that’s what we’ll say too.

    It’s really not that hard to understand.

    Now, I know Paul pretty well by now. If the guy had been reasonable, Paul would never have added the incident to the review. This blog post would never have been written or tweeted.

    But the dude came out with guns blazing, so there ya go. Paul is just about the world’s nicest guys (he’s MUCH more good-natured and even-tempered than I am), and he wuz – understandably – cheezed by this. And me? Well, I didn’t write the review, but I saw nothing in it to draw that kind of underhanded – and completely ludicrous – threat.

    So I was pretty hot under the collar too. I DO NOT take kindly to threats, whether they’re directed at me, or at my friends. ‘Nuff said.

  5. What’s even more amusing is that no doubt this will become indexed in the SERPS.

    These guys will end up looking like even bigger idiots than had they let sleeping dogs lie.

    Now they added threats and retarded claims about the review being biased on top of having a useless overated product.

    Keep digging..
