Strangest legal threat yet

Whoever posted this link to violate their copyright should feel ashamed - yawn. You will be tempted to click over but I would not -this is an fyi post only. My bet is Google penalized this site for posting spam so they came up with a scheme that they will threaten sites that they posted spam on to try to get them to remove it. Apparently the site admins consist of high school students who got caught with their pants down because that is would be the only reasoning behind such a twist of a threat. Good luck getting all of these links removed Legal Compliance Department.

Blog world that retired baseball players have a lot of time on their hands and to be wary of them. I guess I will have to watch you closer from now on. Thanks for getting me in hot water.

At the could ruin the reputation part of the letter. PhakitMan and GuestZero ruined it a long time ago.

There's no such thing as "illegal linking".

Question: Do I need permission to link to someone else's site?

Answer: In general, if someone is making a website publicly available, others may freely link to it. That open linking is what makes the web a "web."

Good one, GZ. I'm actually laughing out loud. Not rolling on the floor, though.

Patience is a great virtue.

I have to wonder why anyone would take the time to write a bogus letter like that.
