My Eyes! My Eyes!

Unbelievable and fascinating in a train wreck sort of way:

A Bully Finds a Pulpit on the Web

Quick Summation Quote:
“Hello, My name is Stanley with,” the post began. “I just wanted to let you guys know that the more replies you people post, the more business and the more hits and sales I get. My goal is NEGATIVE advertisement.”

A Little Deeper:

Lady buys glasses online. Wants to return them. Merchant says no. Customer says they'll dispute the charge. Merchant says:

“Listen, bitch,” he fumed, according to Ms. Rodriguez. “I know your address. I’m one bridge over” — a reference, it turned out, to the company’s office in Brooklyn. Then, she said, he threatened to find her and commit an act of sexual violence too graphic to describe in a newspaper.

It's all a stunt for a better Google ranking. And it worked!

(Or, at least it used to work.)

The full article is a heck of a read.
