Be Careful Who You Piss Off
If you tee off the right people, this too, could happen to you.
There was an interesting article in the Toronto Star Monday that served as a good warning for Bloggers who like to drag people through the mud — especially rich people who can afford to make you squirm.
It seems that Neate Sagar, an Ottawa-based blogger, has made quite a hobby out of giving the gears to Frank D’Angelo, owner of Steelback Brewery. Sagar used terms like “huckster,” and “two-bit shyster” to describe D’Angelo, a man interested in buying the Pittsburgh Penguins.
According to Sagar, D’Angelo is a “peddler,” a “con man” and an “irritant.” What? He’s not just a plain old dickweed too?
The upshot is that D’Angelo is none too happy with Sagar. In fact, he’s filed a $2-million lawsuit against Sagar, claiming he’s been repeatedly libelled on his site.
