Poetic Justice for Quick Boys Movers


The Adventures of Accordion Guy in the 21st Century is a great, Toronto-based blog written by Joey deVilla. Recently Joey asked his readers if they knew of a good moving company, or ones to avoid. One reader posted about a bad experience with Quick Boys Moving & Storage.

Nearly a month after the post, a Google search for "Quick Boys" and "movers" shows the comment on deVilla's site as the #2 result. Joey then receives a call, at his work, from an employee at Quick Boys demanding that he remove the comment to his blog, and threatening legal action.

Since then, the story has been reposted as it's own entry at Accordion Guy, and been linked to on blogs across the internet, including the wildly popular Boing Boing. If Quick Boys wanted this story to go away, they went about it entirely the wrong way. Instead of the comment getting removed, the entire story has been published. Now, a search for "Quick Boys" and "movers" on Google reveals 8 out of the first 10 results to discussion about the incident. Only two results point to Quick Boys ads in Yellow Page like directories. Maybe now they'll threaten Google?
