THE-RIOTACT.COM REFUSES TO REMOVE UNWARRANTED, UNPROVEN and UNNECESSARY INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS ABOUT REDSUN AND BLACKSUN STUDIOS

By Redsun 27 January 2011 42

A subscriber to THE-RIOTACT.COM website has made some very unfavourable comments about Redsun and Blacksun Rehearsal Studios. Other people using this forum had asked this user to explain why they should “stay away” from our business. He did not follow this thread up with any response. It might help to point out that  this individual is regularly slapped in THE-RIOTACT.COM forums by other users for inappropriate comment.

Redsun management has contacted THE-RIOTACT.COM administration and asked politely if the comment could please be deleted. The response from the RIOTACT management is as follows:

Hi,

We’ll ask the user what they think, but we take a very dim view of unfounded pseudo legal threats and suggest you don’t use words like slander if you don’t know what they mean.

Regards, John

This smug, curtly composed letter (singing of apparent veiled threats and pseudo legal recourse) seems to be the very best that THE-RIOTACT.COM management has to offer.. We have made no threats whatsoever in regards to legal action ever! Not to mention to suggest that I have no grasp of the English language and could not possibly know what slander means.

After these letters was a phone call between John and myself in which John Griffiths got extremely upset and REFUSED to delete the post, singing out again about legal this and legal that…. with ZERO regard for a struggling Canberra business.

We have been providing this service to the Canberra bands for many years. What many people may not know is that we do not make substantive profit from these businesses and as such consider it a service to the bands of Canberra and appreciate any assistance we can get.

We are asking THE-RIOTACT.COM to consider possible affect this comment may have on a small but highly necessary business like ours in the Canberra region and to do the right thing and have it removed.

We love and support all of the bands in Canberra and we plan to continue to provide rehearsal space to this amazing industry for many years to come.

This is a call out to ALL Canberra bands. Go to the THE-RIOTACT.COM website ( www.the-riotact.com ) and log in as a user (it’s free and very simple) Go to this address ( http://the-riotact.com/band-rehearsal-spaces/22125 ) and leave your comment and support for Blacksun and Redsun and your disgust in THE-RIOTACT.COM management for not making an informed decision to remove the old thread.

HELP SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL MUSIC COMMUNITY TO HAVE THESE COMMENTS REMOVED!!

Your help is GREATLY appreciated.

Redsun and Blacksun Management.

Maybe Redsun knows what “slander” means, but one has to wonder about his self-touted command of the English language when he clearly doesn’t know when to use “effect” versus “affect” in a sentence. 😉

Did they not put enough topping on your pizza or something?

I'm another person who had never heard of this business before reading this thread.

You think you’re so f***ing smart and funny don’t you John…

Not that I am a prude or anything. But if I was dealing with a business,,,I would like to think they were at least halfway professional. Coming onto a public website and dropping the F bomb isn’t very professional in my opinion. Just sayin.

Well here’s my two cents for what it’s worth.

I use to be in a few local bands and used RedSun (and occasionally BlackSun) for at least two years. I liked the management and never had any probs, we’d rock up, do our thang and that was that. Management was always more than helpful and attentive. I have simply moved onto new personal interests other than bands

Now that said Postalgeek had a very good point in that threads come and go so why dig up an old thread and draw attention to it and starting a flame war with RiotACT/Johnboy isn’t going to help things along.

The internet is full of people whingeing and whining about everything- you can’t stop it and personally I don’t pay much attention to it in my decision making process – I’d generally rather make up my own mind with regards to businesses

So maybe if people are upset reflect upon what it is you can do to improve and grow and address that, don’t get caught up in the past look ahead (and now I sound zen and wanky) but there it is, my two cents worth.

I think we have the first quote for the pool room for 2011.

And now a new thread promoting themselves?

Nice try Redsun, but the damage has been done.

Yep. Bag the s*** out of this site and its owner, then have the gall to post a new ad for the business. Very poor form.

Can we just have the story already?

IOne must ask, if it acts this way towards something so trivial as this, then how is it going to treat clients if some misunderstanding or minor conflict arises?

Now *that* is an interesting question, Thumper.

Thumper 8:38 am 28 Jan 11

I’m more worried that a local business can think it can bully and cajole a local and extremely popular website into removing what would appear to be nothing more than an inconsequential comment about it’s operations.

And then, not content with the bullying, simply resorts to childish abuse.

I ask, is this the sort of business people want to deal with? One must ask, if it acts this way towards something so trivial as this, then how is it going to treat clients if some misunderstanding or minor conflict arises? One doesn’t need to think deeply about that question given the comments in this thread.

Having said that, I wish the business all the best although I suggest that it may want to revise its PR strategy.

I imagine he would think that because he *is* f***ing smart and funny. Unlike you, from the evidence presented. One of the things that drew me to this website was the Overlord’s writing, which demonstrates wit, clarity of thought, and above all brevity.

This is not a paid infomercial or promotion, and no children or animals were harmed in the preparation of this post.

OH…ALMOST FORGOT…RANDOM STUFF ALL IN CAPS….

What an impressive display of genuine professionalism by this local business! I can see they will gain many new customers from taking the time to engage with the local community here in such a thoughtful and generous way. I’m certain this posting is destined to become an iconic example in small business marketing text books all over the world. Bravo!!

JessP 8:18 pm 27 Jan 11

bigred 7:19 pm 27 Jan 11

Gee, these folk sure have glass jaws. Imagine how they would react to a real lambasting, of the type dished out to ACTION or some of the eateries about town?

I think I’ll be the first to use the C word regarding these people. No, not that one but another far worse word – “censorship”.

Unless there’s any Australian law broken, And the web masters are happy with it there’s no need to remove any comment from the Riot act. What ever happened to FREE speech, and a good debate?

sexynotsmart 5:30 pm 27 Jan 11

I’m distressed when complainants don’t include their initial email, but quote the response from the second party. It’s like hearing half a phone call.

The Court of Public Opinion (now in session) is being denied evidence crucial to the matter. And this juror wants to discharge his duty, dammit!

Redsun or Johnboy, could you please post the original Redsun email?

You 3:41 pm 27 Jan 11

I really don’t know why you brought this up. Unearthing a post made eons ago that would have been long forgotten if you didn’t draw attention to it.

And the “You think you’re so f***ing smart and funny don’t you John…” comment? That can’t be good for business.

You would have been far better off just keeping quiet. Maybe you can ask John to delete this post for you?

Oh…wait……

Redsun – I really think you need to rethink your strategy with this. All you’ve done here is draw attention to one person’s opinion from more than 6 months ago, and made a big deal of something that was basically dead and buried. Or are you getting feedback from potential customers that they are wary of using you because of that comment?

Now I’m curious to know why Jim Jones thinks Redsun and Blacksun Studios should be avoided like the plague.

Thanks for your helpful comment. I am getting negative feedback from some new (and even old) customers who are curious as to the nature of the post. I cannot honestly answer them as I have no idea.
