Things FORBA Small Smiles Don't Want You To Know

In the past two weeks FORBA, for some reason,  after 2 years has decided they don't want anyone to see information or opinions of two subjects.  I received a letter last week asking two be removed and this week they've added a new one to the list.  Until it can be further investigated I will remove them, in accordance to the consent injunction I signed.  However, 2 years ago, I filed a Compliance agreement saying I had removed reference to documents they were stupid enough to post openly on the Internet.  Being they accepted that Compliance statement with no objections, seems to me I had satisfied their request, right?
However, they have decided to pick on me again, I guess I'm the only case in the courts they feel they can truly get a bit of satisfaction beating upon.  I find it amazing in so many ways. 
Here is a quote from their Cease and Desist Letter:

"…a review of recent postings on your website dentistthemenace.com which is directed to debbiehagan.blogspot.com, reveals that you are engaging in clear contempt of the Court's permanent injunction by publishing confidential and internal information about FORBA's contracts with its dentists.  Without limitations, we direct you to your entries dated July 13 … and 20… 2010…" 
I'm not sure how they consider their new deals with the dentists "confidential and internal" since there are ads out the waazoo on the Internet advertising they are hiring and dentists will be paid a commission.  But we know how they operate, put it on the Internet, and cry like a baby if someone who does not like them reads it!
Clearly their standard of "Confidential and Internal" differs greatly from what is normal, instead meaning anything they themselves post on the Internet.  With that being the stick by which they measure, how in the hell would anyone know what they consider "Confidential and Internal"!!??
As for all other lawsuits involving them, I actually have lost count! 
Ohio – 2, or three I think
Virginia – 3, I believe
Tennessee- 1
Oklahoma – 1
New York – Hundreds maybe, who knows
Colorado – untold number but at least 1 or 2 this year
South Carolina – 1, but I think it's settled
Anyway, you get the point…they have mucho legal proceedings going on and mucho legal fees.
Here is the response received from them yesterday.  Yesterday they added a new post they want removed.  I guess I could get one of their letters everyday seeing how they gauge "Confidential and Internal".  Looks like someone has a full time job and the postal service is going to love them!  However, I highly doubt they get another wish list filled.
Back to what they don't want you to know:
1.  Warnings and Pitfalls For Dentists - A post about problems working strictly on commission – After I reviewed this post in full I remembered this wasn't written by me but someone who saw several problems.  So I highly disagree that this information/opinion is or was "Confidential and Internal" to FORBA's business operations. 

2.  Small Smiles Dentists Pay To Be Production Based Only By January 2011-No Vacation-No Holidays-No Paid Time Off – Since this information are in ads Jenna Kochenberger has posted on the Internet, I highly disagree that this is "Confidential and Internal" either and believe they would have a hard time holding this argument. 

Anyway, we all know FORBA by now, whether it's being run by the DeRose bunch or the Arab bunch and their cronies they try to bully their way through, so bully it is.
They manhandle and bully the innocent children, they bully and imprison their employees, in my opinion of course,  so what else does one expect from the famous Bully Dental Company.
And by doing this, they just keep stuff that would have gotten lost in the mix, back to the top.
