Mancentral have threatened Mothership Gay Dating with legal action over remarks made on Mothership about the Mancentral ‘promise‘ over its ‘100% free’ messages.
In a recent post in the Mothership Blog (which followed a Mothership Gay Forums post made by a Mancentral member) I followed up on questions that were raised about Mancentral’s prominent home page statement that it was ‘100% free’ to contact other members. In fact only 10 messages can be sent for free in a 24 hour period, after which Mancentral members must pay.
Mancentral’s PR manager Lee Martin emailed Mothership requesting
that you remove this inaccurate and damaging information immediately
We take this matter and your accusations very seriously.
I’ve replied to Mancentral asking which information in particular they considered to be inaccurate and I am still awaiting a response.
Lee Martin’s email in full is reproduced below:
