The lefties over at DailyKos
are today reporting on Troy Lyndon, CEO of Left Behind Games, Inc.
, and the fact that his attorney is sending bloggers threatening letters to remove "false and misleading" information in posts and comments regarding the company's game Left Behind: Eternal Forces
(known to the gaming community as Convert or Die
If bloggers (DailyKos included) do not comply with the request, LBG "will be forced to pursue additional legal action which will include claims for damages, costs of suit and attorney’s fees".
LBG is expected to release an expansion pack for the Left Behind
game this month. Since the original title was not warmly embraced by the gaming community
, one is led to wonder if this threat tactic is part of an effort to scrub the internet of all negative Left Behind: Eternal Forces
press before the release of the expansion. After all, at the time of the November 2006 Left Behind: Eternal Forces
release, LBG stock was riding a $7.44 high. Recently it's traded as low as 14 cents
. Desperate times do call for desperate measures.
Still, threatening bloggers and their commenters isn't the smartest thing a company can do. With public relations practices such as these, it's no wonder the stock is nearly worthless.
- Great post, includes the threatening letter.
- Great summary, including comments form those who have been threatened.
