Yesterday I updated a prior post about the re-opening of Better Books and Cafe and this morning I had this email from Maxine, the owner of the store threatening me with legal action if I don't take down my latest post. I agreed to take it down because I don't want another 248am/Mark lawsuit. The post was based on a story from Kuwait Times which must have upset her. I have no problem with taking something down that I posted if it is actually wrong but I copied a public story from a news agency. She also told me my blog is being watched for harassing comments.
"As proprietress of Better Books (and I prefer to be known as a nice"Kuwaiti" lady) still very much under the investigation of the Ministry of Information, I ask you immediately take your latest post about Better Books off your blog.
I find full of mendacities which is detrimental to my continued business operations.
You are free to call me to get the record straight. My number is well posted on my Facebook page 666 37351.
Also, I regularly consult with a lawyer re my operations and the continued use of your site to spread lies about my business will be dealt with appropriately. Please do the right thing, remove it and call me for a more accurate story.

I thought I was doing something good by reporting the re-opening but I guess not. I did take down the most recent post as per her request even though it wasn't personal just news.
