The bad publicity can cause them to change tactics, but it takes some time.
I've seen much quicker results from blacklisting on Google and other search

No, he *does* want fruitful language - one that produces results.  I think
you meant some other word instead.

As far as "acting like a child", I'm reasonably sure that if CNet was doing
the same thing to the good name of your consulting company, you'd react
similarly.
