Below is an ongoing list of people we’ve “banned” from joining LittleBizzy due to their dishonest behavior, in an effort to warn other agencies out there, or for as long as it takes for the behavior to cease… hopefully others planning to do business with these individuals can discover some of their misdeeds by doing a quick Google search.
Note: Despite the valiant efforts of Naveed Moein to defame us on Facebook and Reddit, none of these people have ever been our customers or paying clients, and are solely third party users.
Adrian Taropa (Webtemple/TD Labs, Toronto, Ontario) — Leaves negative 1-star reviews of our free WordPress plugins in an attempt to force us into supporting the WordPress Multisite platform. Because Burger King, or something.
Corey Kretsinger (Midstate Design, Little Falls, Minnesota) — Leaves negative 1-star reviews of our free WordPress plugins in an attempt to force us into removing our “recommended plugins” notice from the WP Admin dashboard. Also apparently presided over the (now failed) web hosting business midstatehosting.com.
Lars Bøgild Thomsen (Digiquant A/S, Copenhagen, Denmark) — Posts defamatory information about our plugins, accusing us of injecting “spam” into automated plugin updates. Apparently fails to understand how WordPress notices function, not to mention the meaning of “spam.” Also presided over the failed hosting business blognook.com.
Damien Mather, Muhammad A (Leading Edge Systems Pty Ltd, Australia/Denmark/India) — Sends fake product orders through apparently to conduct industry “spying”, then publicly slanders our company despite never being our client. Appears to use a variety of fake online identities and international addresses; also doing business under lesys.in, securitygladiators.com, technologypep.com, thebestproxyserver.com, etc as well as several illegal (dark web) domains like silkroaddrugs.org, blackmarketreloaded.org, thedrugcentre.com, thefreesoftwaredepot.com, etc.
A large part of the open-source software (OSS) community is donating time and money toward improving free software, and working together toward improved functionality. Instead, the below individuals continually slander our free plugin contributions with false and misleading statements, sometimes in an effort to “extort” us into adding certain features…
In multiple places on our contact page and within our free projects (WordPress plugins, SlickStack, etc) we specifically ask users not to harass our team via email or social media in pursuit of “free” support; we invite members of the public to instead join our Facebook group if they have a question or suggestion. Unfortunately, many users still feel entitled to do so…
