    An article bashing bullshido

    articlealley.com/article_1459753_15.html

    I found this when I googled bullshido. It makes some pretty harsh claims. All amazingly unbiased of course.

    Is this sort of thing legal?


    Armed with a handful of sheep like members and paid supporters the self proclaimed mixed martial arts website sets out to promote its agenda, MMA, or more commonly known as mixed martial arts styles, by bashing other martial arts and attempting to destroy as many competing teachers as possible.

    The sites Bullshido.com and Bullshido.net along with Socicide.com are known in the industry as a “Troll Bridge” which refers to the lurkers and monsters (posters) who hide in wait to attack the unsuspecting. “This is the true underbelly of the internet” says Dan Campbell an anti cyber stalking web specialist. Its sites like this that give internet forums a black eye, and cause legislators headaches on how to deal with their form of attacks.

    Doing a google search on many martial arts teachers and schools who do not teach MMA will most likely see at the top of the results a Bullshido linkwith the terms Fraud and Fake in the caption. Many of Fletchers competitors have fallen victim to his tactics, so many that some are now questioning his claim of free speech, even when the wild claims made on the website are clearly fabricated in house.

    So what is behind the success of these bashing hate websites? The answer is two distinct reasons. One, Neal Fletcher a one time martial artist turned promoter and MMA clothing salesman, also owns a one man company out of his garage that is in the business of manipulating Google search results for hire to web masters, as well as being paid directly from Google for advertising on the Bullshido web pages that slander and demean teachers and schools worldwide. The second reason is moderator, administrator and common poster Sam Browning a Connecticut lawyer who offers his services nationwide to see to it that none of the Bullshido victims can possibly get the false and misleading information removed from the Google search results.

    Its this relationship between Google and sites such as this that raise eyebrows. When Google is clearly making cash off of bashing they have no reason to police itself even with the appearance of impropriety. The more elaborate or outlandish the claims made by Fletchers Bullshido gang, the more web hits and thus the more cash flow the website owners and Google make. So Fletcher has motive to keep things over the top regardless of the truth, and “businesses” like this hide behind antiquated laws that need to be addressed to protect the public and our teachers.

    The bottom line is that Bullshido or Bull sells.

    You gotta love how they don't produce the specific name of a single innocent teacher who was falsely labeled a fraud. Also it seems that conusmer advocacy is now cyber stalking. .

    Wow... that is almost as bad as when some people here talk about Fox News...

    ...and as accurate.

    "Giving the Internet a black eye" would be a great tagline for Bullshido.

    Sweet I'm in a gang now.

    It's pretty close to how I became moderator. A bunch of 'toughs' in the neighborhood were nearby when I was shooting some ball, they clearly were up to no good. They did forth shuffle to my present location, their unwashed gi pants hanging low below their flabby non-deep squatting bottoms, and presented me with only one option: "Hey, you want to mod some stuff?" Not knowing what I was getting into, or maybe wanting the unknown too much, I spoke to the assembled, "Yo I can dig it." By pressing some buttons in a computer, they forthwith bestowed me there with moderator powers and a shiny tag. Was a pretty rough initiation, not for the faint hearted, but I henceforth doth carry the load, and I shall carry forward unerringly.
