Well of course, if *your* competitor hires the mob to threaten you, *you*
wouldn't dream of telling the police, you would try to outcompete them
Watch out for that horse's head, I hear it's hard to get *stains out
of the sheets.
PS: If you are sarcasm-impaired, going to the courts when your opponent
is using *illegal* tactics is exactly what courts were instituted for. You
don't compete, you call the cops.
HTH, HAND etc.
