PM that doesn't exist?

Post by danielgadowski » Wed Feb 05, 2014 9:24 am

Hi guys. Today I got an email from the forum saying I got a message, but after going into my inbox there is nothing there. Was there some sort of global spam cleaning taking place?
Part of the email below:

Hello danielgadowski,
You have received a new private message from "Geopticks" to your account on "Laser Scanning Forum Ltd" with the following subject:

Maybe he deleted the message after creating it?
If you want to make something simple, then take one thing away that still allows you to do the job. Don't add two more things, and say they both make it easier.

Several of us received PMs from Geopticks yesterday threatening legal action if we didn't stop making "derogatory" comments about their software. I'm guessing you were lucky enough to get one too. Since then it looks like the forum moderators have deleted the Geopticks forum and user account.

Although the discussions in that forum may not have been the most productive I'm a little disappointed that it was deleted and not just locked. The discussions did provide some useful historical context and were one of the top hits in Google for Geopticks.

Well, if i was sent something, then i don't even know what it was. it got deleted before i had a look. But using court over comments on a forum sounds a bit excessive to me...
Good luck to all involved in that discussion then, we might have to chip in for a lawyer :o

I also think it was good to re-read the original thread (which I did last night) and see the efforts some people put in like Matt Young providing test data etc.

I think what was posted was actually a bill for $1190 to be settled before the patent would be considered.
It states that it is not a grant of patent rights.
