You would first have to prove that they did indeed lie and then it would have to be multiple customers, but either way if you report it make sure it can stick or you might get theon grey joyed

No, you just have to demonstrate someone told YOU Battlefoam lied to it's customers. Reporting inaccurate information provided by a witness is not defamation. It's only illegal if you had no basis for the reporting. A single testifying witness or example is enough to show a basis for the reportage.

You are right, I'm sorry. Natfka is the only site who have ever received a C&D letter from GW. No other website or forum has ever been threatened with legal action from GW forcing them to remove home made rules, fan creations that updates specialist games GW haven't bothered with for many years or posting rumour and pictures...

A single person isn't a case though unless they've solid proof. Lying could be 'they said it'd be here on the 5th... it didn't come until the 6th!' for all we know. That's the delivery company, not Battlefoam.

If it was more 'we'll provide x cases, with x trays for x price' and they delivered less for more money then quoted... That's lying. But I've yet to see a single report anywhere of a case like that.

What BoK has done is pretty much said 'Don't use battle foam, they suck and you won't get your stuff' In a large public forum that reaches a big portion of BattleFoams target market.... BoK have shown no solid evidence of this other then heresay from some anymous faces who could just be internet trolls.

That's Defamation and BattleFoam has a perfectly good case for sueing them.

As said... BoK's got a bad history of sensationalist nonsense like this... Its why here he's got very poor reputation.

BoK seem like a bunch of retarded pricks to me.

A blog that reports on toy soldiers getting taken to court over a comment about a company that makes foam for toy soldiers.

Its hilarious.

I agreed. I could not give a monkeys who wins this one.

I'm just imagining the judge sitting there listening to both sides outlining there case thinking to him/herself "fucking nerds, why did I get out of bed this morning?" It's an amusing mental image.

Probably the funniest part of season 3, I'm surprised it hasn't made it to meme form yet.


I didn't even think people still read BoK.

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...

Personally, until this thread actually explained what the abbreviation BoK stood for I thought people were just spelling Boc's name wrong.

Know what it stands for though, I have to ask: how? How could you possibly think a name like that might draw in a decent amount of interest?

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

As said.. the guy who runs it is an idiot. And that's me being extremely polite about what I think of him.
