ComplaintRemover in the news again

In June of last year, I wrote about Bill Stanley's "ComplaintRemover" service which was slapped down by an Arizona judge. The idea behind the service was that if you were a business owner and you wanted negative customer feedback removed from the internet, you'd contract with ComplaintRemover who would then cajole, bully, or threaten the offending website into removing the unwanted comment. Their services even extended to making death threats.

Well, today's Consumerist has an article that shows that ComplaintRemover is still in business. They have an amusing chat transcript in which "Kelly" from ComplaintRemover assures a potential client that they can arrange to have LOLCats removed from the internet.
