I have a website hosted at Black Cat Networks and when some
asshole went over my head and complained to them about some
content on my site they were quite supportive.

They told the complainant to go away and talk to me about it,
and they told me that they would not ask me to remove anything
unless they received an official letter from a lawyer.

The complainant kept changing his mind, first saying he didn't
mind me keeping the content after all, then without warning
making a renewed threat to Black Cat Networks. At this point,
though I believed that the complaint was pure bullshit, I
decided to remove the content myself. I left a mirrored copy
of a related Indymedia page on my site but after a while he
spotted that and asked me to remove it. Since the original
was still up at Indymedia I again decided to comply.

By the way, more than 6 months later the original is *still*
up at Indymedia, despite the guy's claims that his legal team
were getting it taken down:
