Hot Under Collar
It seems the Merry Men are closed in. Sherwood Forest used to be the perfect hiding place. It doesn't work anymore.
Under the holiday break, something weird happened at Radsoft: sales soared. They're not supposed to. This is the holiday break, when people are out buying CDs and books and DVDs and mink coats for their loved ones and not so loved ones. They usually don't have time for software until well into the next month, when the paychecks start coming in again.
But a deluge has been hitting Radsoft, and no one has been able to figure out why. Until today.

Hello, this is Chris Carter from pair Networks.
This came to me as a complaint of spamming against radsoft.net, due to the presence of your site URL in the body. However, it is clearly nothing of the sort. Spamcop isn't very smart about this sort of thing. In any case, you should be interested in the mail in question, especially as it appears it may be being sent unsolicited.

So, to review: Andy Churchill is getting desperate. He's trying to turn people who've turned away from him - with the net result that these people - receiving unsolicited spam letters and figuring 'the enemy of my enemy must be my friend' - are actually rushing to the Radsoft site in droves - to buy a product they know has to be good if Andy puts it down.
And realistically: what better reference can anyone have, than to be called bad names by Robin Hood Software?
Radsoft therefore thank Robin Hood Software - Andy Churchill and all above the curry shop in Nottingham - for their support.
Unfortunately, we do not permit the use of affiliate programs, so Andy can't get a cut. We dismissed the idea long ago after we saw how Andy and his fellow curry enthusiasts abused their own program.
