Maybe it's just me, but I would think that simply getting them listed on
stopbadware.org and other similar sites would probably have much more of an
effect.
The bad publicity can cause them to change tactics, but it takes some time.
I've seen much quicker results from blacklisting on Google and other search
engines.

No, he *does* want fruitful language - one that produces results.  I think
you meant some other word instead.

As far as "acting like a child", I'm reasonably sure that if CNet was doing
the same thing to the good name of your consulting company, you'd react
similarly.

On the other hand, just being Fyodor is sufficient to get him taken
seriously.
