Epixtar has been doing rounds among Filipino blogs to check for an alledged comment exposing salary information of top executives of the firm.
To whom it may concern,
My name is Jeff Myatt, from Epixtar Corp. I write to address the “œEpixtar hunting blog comments on salary info “ thread on your “œPinoy.Tech.Blog” website.
We at Epixtar would never wish to interfere with the free flow of thoughts and ideas on your blog website or elsewhere on the internet. This principle applies with equal force to postings that may portray our Company in an unflattering light.
We must, however, respectfully direct your attention to the January 26th, 2006 posting in this “œEpixtar hunting blog comments on salary info “ thread, which purports to list salaries of many named Epixtar employees.
This personal salary information was obviously misappropriated and posted on your site by an unidentified individual or individuals. This salary information is proprietary and not public, and not intended for publication by Epixtar. It is also materially inaccurate. This information was disseminated unlawfully by whoever posted it on your website.
We must accordingly request that you immediately and fully delete this posting from your website and or “œfriends” websites. Please note that we do not take issue with anyone stating any perceived issues concerning Epixtar; however, we must take issue with the posting of such personal and proprietary information, concerning our business and our employees.
I hope this issue can be resolved in a swift and amicable manner.
If you have any questions or issues regarding this matter, I would welcome the opportunity to address them personally.

First, he mentions about a blog entry title that was never posted on this blog (It was on my own blog and that entry did not contain any comments on the salary info). He is referring to PinoyTechBlog for this comment, of which we have still to decide to remove or not. Our resident lawyer thinks there was nothing illegal about that post. They’re just embarrased. If they have any beef with it, they better take it up with the one that posted it. Secondly, if the information there was inaccurate, what is there to be concerned about?
If Epixtar is approaching the issue this way, they’re just going in circles. What’s preventing the guy who made the comment to open up dozens of free blog accounts all over the net (or forums, yahoogroups, etc.) and post the same info?
