Better Business Bureau Gets Stupid
from the you-want-what-now? dept
Thanks to Geekpress for finding this one. The Better Business Bureau, in a moment of what can only be described as pure stupidity, has decided that no one can link to their website any more since there’s copyrighted material on it. So, basically, they’re saying the whole concept of the web is illegal. Anyway, here’s a message for the folks at the Better Business Burea: if you don’t want people to link to your website – don’t have one. Of course, if you have a complaint about how the Better Business Bureau is doing business – who do you complain to?

Geez, what morons. They didn’t even bother to set up a robots.txt to keep the search engines out.
I mean, everything is born copyrighted, so by their stance, no site can link *anywhere*.
They’re also hypocrites. How else could you explain a page like http://www.bbb.org/outside/company.asp?
I guessed their URL and visited their site.
Full of links to other corporations. Plus the
names of the major corps like Intel and Microsoft,
all of which have a seat on the board of BBB. You
think they’d know better.
Just found that the BBB has a site with links to companies that “do not have our permission to use BBB trademarks and have refused to comply with repeated requests to stop using them“.
What I find so ironic is that they provide links to some of those sites. But by their own logic, they should not be ALLOWED to use the trademarked names of these companies or link to their copyrighted web sites.
Better Business Crap
I dealt with the Better Business Bureau for years.
Here it is in a nutshell.
they are the most greedy and corrupt organization in America
and Canada too.
they never had the business or the consumer at heart ever
read these links.
these are just a few of the examples of the SACRED BBB
