Building survey post

As you may be aware, there was a post here about a company which offered us a free survey of our flat, trying to sell exterior wall paint. It was expensive so we said no. We later looked up the company on the web and found they had lots of bad reviews. I blogged about what had happened, warning people not to be taken in by pushy sales people.

People then began to comment on the post. There were over 100 comments at the last count. One company providing a similar service was mentioned by a commenter. This company contacted me, asking me to remove the whole post as some comments were defamatory. I have removed the whole lot as I do not want to be responsible for what other people say on here. I am sorry I've had to do this.

If you would like to comment about these companies, I suggest you Google for a suitable forum. Try something like ukbusinessforums or moneysavingexpert.
