Is the freedom of speech allowed on BleepingComputer?

by Jake Doevan - -

Several days ago, BleepingComputer community announced that they were sued by Enigma Software for a negative review of SpyHunter. While they claim that this review is just a personal view of one of their members, in our opinion it is written with the intention to suggest people a negative opinion about a competing anti-malware software. Are such methods considered an appropriate competition? Let’s wait some time to see what court decides.

After publishing this new, the site encouraged people to donate for their defend and join the discussion about this case. Almost each of its participants was calling SpyHunter “a laughable product,” which is “is flawed on multiple levels.” Unfortunately, but it seems that none of these people who are calling this legitimate program a virus have tried this program.

In our opinion, this discussion was initiated just to let the only side talk. It was not open to both sides because, after trying to register and express our opinion, we received a notification: “Sorry, you don’t have permission for that!“.

Besides, we noticed that undesirable comments related to Malwarebytes anti-malware were deleted, even if they had no link inside. So, while the team of BleepingComputer cries out loud about the violation of their freedom of speech, they keep removing comments that support the other side. What kind of freedom of speech are we discussing here?
