Router company that threatened a reviewer loses Amazon selling license

On Thursday, Mediabridge Products posted an official statement about this incident to its Facebook page, clarifying its position and saying that Amazon has revoked its selling privileges. However, Mediabridge subsequently deleted the statement and its entire Facebook presence after receiving negative comments.

In the statement, the company says that it did not actually sue the Amazon reviewer, but that it did insist that the reviewer's "untrue, damaging, and disparaging statements" be taken down.

Amazon did the right thing....

If your company is good and respectable all they had to do was respond to the bad review by saying, "we are sorry to hear you are having problems with our product, we do not make bad products, but it is possible you got a bad unit, please allow us to refund you for the unit, and have a chance to look into what may have gone wrong."

Anyone can respect a company that seems to go above and beyond to address concerns.

-But instead they decide to sue and force the buyer to take down his own opinion of the events. -Bad Move

In todays social media world. No post stays deleted. They shot themselves in the foot by trying to remove it because it only made them look worse. They have lost face 100x more then 1 bad review. I will never buy their products for sure. That company is a sinking ship now lol
