It is our desire to bring to the attention of our readers a matter involving one of our correspondents. An
ongoing business disagreement that should have remained internal -- as established and accepted protocols dictate

We have chosen not to give his name out of respect, but the respect has not been reciprocal. He and associates
have decided to pursue this matter in a way that most would consider unethical and bordering on slander. In fact,
he has met two of three requirements for the legal descriptor of slander. Not only have business associates been
contacted by emwith the intent to impute wrong motive and implying, if not outright suggesting, that it would
be in their best interest to discontinue association with us, but letters have been sent as well.
This constitutes libel.
Further, they chose to reveal confidential email correspondence between us with several of our virtual staff

We have not decided at this point whether to pursue this through litigation, as it is our desire to resolve this
matter without resorting to that course of action. We maintain the greatest respect for the work of this
correspondent, but take the dimmest of views as to the manner he has chosen to pursue resolution.
We will resolve this difficulty at the appropriate time.
