Congrats, Mike...

As a certified shorthand reporter (I create transcripts like those higher up in this thread), we never like to see these cases resolve or settle (big grin) because it means fewer pages for us folks, but in this case, I'll make an exception ;-)

I remember following the original thread where AMP was being bashed.
AMP was trying to protect their business like they should have.

That poster was trashing them pretty good and I dont blame them for trying to stop him.
That thread was out of control.

Would that thread have been allowed if it was about a sponsor on this site ?

What thread? Be specific. I have a strong feeling you've not read all the posts and don't have all the facts.

As for sponsors, if you spent a minute searching you would find threads where reviews are posted. Even for site sponsors. And those reviews can be both good or bad, so long as they are genuine. Stop trying to create drama.

Some vendors resort to creating fake accounts and disguising their identity, posting fake reviews. Then they get banned. Some of them don't take it well and act like 5 year olds who had their toys taken away. They go to other websites and whine and cry, and naturally they don't tell the while story about their fraud or deception, or even that they were banned. Instead they just make shit up about the site and try to confuse the issues.

AMP acts like they don't know why they were banned, but it's just an act. They were told, and they also receive the message each time they try to use the site. All of their duplicate accounts also receive that message. It's also documented in the threads for anyone to read and reach their own conclusions.

You should really be careful who you give your allegiance to.

@Big Mike the link doesn't work correctly. You need to to add the end parenthesis ) after (legal_procedure). Just FYI.

What a relief! Justice prevails after all. I am in the process of completing transferring my account to another broker.

Congrats. I have been following this carefully. Especially since this was taking place in my hometown and familiar with all firms involved. I hope this sets a legal precedent to protect free speech on forums, and honest reviews/replies. As well as deterring larger firms who will blatantly threaten the little guy with legal action in order to make them bend to their will. Mostly out of fear that they will lose and have to fight a giant. On a personal level, great going to take the fight to them, win or lose that was a gallant step. But winning makes it all the sweeter. As a member of the forum, glad futures.io (formerly BMT) is the way it is and has the balls to keep it that way.

I join the crew. Congrats, Mike.

re


I am very glad to see this outcome.

Congrats Mike !
Thank you for doing the work.

... and not to sound too silly:
this is also good for freedom of speech (and freedom of opinion - in this case)

treydog999 said it well: above
