Colors N More advertises that they "are committed to completing your home improvement project with the greatest care and attention to detail." and on another website claims "QUALIY is [their] FIRST priority" but, in actuality, if they are capable of painting a straight line ( even using tape ) or, painting a wall without a dozen drips and sags in it, they showed no proof of it here. Paint all over hardwood floors, furniture, appliances and carpet. Sections of door casing and baseboard left unpainted. Wall paint on the ceiling and trim and trim paint on the walls. They show up to work on your project when they feel like it and show NO respect for your home -- Over a month has passed since we made the mistake of letting them in our home and we are STILL finding more sloppy work, mistakes and damage ! Steve will talk all kinds of hype about how good they are and how they "have earned the trust and respect of the community" but the only POSITIVE reviews that you will find for them are from 2011 and left by "anonymous". Their written proposals and promises aren't worth the paper that they are printed on BUT, a judge will decide whether or not he is still bound by his words ! DO NOT BE FOOLED ! Colors N More either doesn t care about doing professional work OR they are incapable of it ! Either way, do you want that for YOUR home !?

Joe,
Why dont you tell them about what happened? I know they want to know why you were walking around nude. Please dont ruin my name if you dont tell the story of how you groped my helper.

You know Mr. Snell, you wouldn't have to worry about anyone "ruining your name" if you provided what you promised. As I stated when we last spoke, I will see you in court and, in addition to any other reviews that I post, I WILL print your comments from THIS review for the judge to read.
Unlike you, I don't have to lower my standards to name calling or lies. In every single one of my reviews, I posted only FACTS which I can, have and will support with actual photos of your sloppy work. By the way, I also have printed the review posted by Glenda K.( apparently another customer that you ripped off on Oct 4, 2012 ).

Mr Snell, you are free to pursue any action that you feel you have a legal right to. Your threats mean nothing to me since I have the truth to support my case. Your immature statements, fabrications and untrue statements that I still owe you money ( I still have your signed proposal as well as the cancelled checks ) only further bolster my case against you and, gives me options to pursue additional legal action against you. You will not provoke me to you act on your level Mr Snell so write all the stories you want. I will no longer respond to your lies and you can explain your actions and statements to the judge on November 5th at 9:00 a.m.

Joe,
I will be there. I dont want any trouble. I just want to let the world know that you embraced me with a deep passionate kiss. We were meant for each other and I really want to just be with you. There is no problem with my painting you just dont want me to leave but I love you. Please read this to the judge so he will see. You wont because you want to live a lie and I donot. Please have mercy on me because it is you that I love.

Now you are signing MY name to posts to try to cover yourself Mr. Snell ? No problem, I can get the IP address that your posts are sent from to show that they are all from you. For all your efforts, let me give you something to think about -- when we get done in court on the 5th, I will swear out another warrant against you for defamation. Keep playing around with me Mr. Snell, youre just digging a deeper hole for yourself.

Joe,
You need to take it easy. You are the one defaming this guy every chance you get on every message board.So making it so this guy cant make a living is right. He hasnt yet been convicted but you are running his name through the mud. So you can look up the ip address big deal people can say what they want whether you like it or not. I have posted on here to get you going and it worked. The bottom line is he painted you paid him. You should of had a milestone clause with inspection provisions in your contract. Dont get on here and make threats. I dont know this guy but dont like your heavy handed tatics. So if you look up IP addresses you should know people can find your information just as easy. So go to court let them convict him and then make inflammatory statements.

Free speech and First Amendment issues are just some of the legal challenges that could come up in an attempt to compel Topix to give up IP addresses to identify individual posters. Food for thought.

It is everyones right to say what they want even you JOE! Remember that. You say what you want why cant we even if it is to get a rise out of you.

No,"Defamation" ( or whoever you are since I am the only one willing to put my name on my posts ), I am not making threats -- Read Va. law on defamation, it states ( and I quote )

"Defamation
Defamation includes both slander and libel. Slander is an oral statement while libel is a written statement. Virginia law makes no distinction between the two. The state defines defamation as an untrue statement of fact, rather than opinion, which damages a person’s reputation. The Virginia statute of limitations is one year and the law caps punitive damages at $350,000, but does not limit damage awards.

Actionable Statements
In Virginia, plaintiffs in civil defamation cases must provide the alleged defamatory statement word for word. Additionally, the plaintiff must be able to prove that the statement is false. Finally, the plaintiff must show that at least one other person heard or read the statement.

Reputation
In order to win a defamation judgment, the plaintiff must also show that the false statement damaged his or her reputation in the community. However, Virginia recognizes “defamation per se.” That means the commonwealth considers some false statements so egregious that the plaintiff does not need to further prove defamation. In Virginia, defamation per se covers false statements that imply the victim is facing criminal charges, has a contagious disease or is unfit to perform his or her job. Additionally, defamation per se covers statements damaging to the victim in his or her trade.

Negligence and Actual Malice
Like other state laws, Virginia law imposes a lower burden on private citizens than public figures. Private citizens usually only need to show that the defendant acted with negligence. That means the defendant made the false statement without taking care to confirm the veracity of the statement. However, if the damage to the person’s reputation is not readily apparent from the contexts of the false statement, the actual malice standard applies. Actual malice means that the defendant made the false statement with the intention of damaging the plaintiff’s reputation. The actual malice standard also applies to public figures, public officials and limited purpose public figures. Limited purpose public figures have put themselves in the public eye for a specific issue and the actual malice standard only applies to statements regarding that particular issue.

Defense
Truth is an absolute defense against defamation cases. Virginia also recognizes fair report privilege in court cases. For example, a newspaper can publish that police charged someone with a crime even if the person is innocent. The Citizen Media Law Project has not identified any Virginia defamation cases involving the wire service defense, meaning a news organization can repeat a story filed by another news service like the Associated Press and not face a defamation suit."

So, you see there is NOTHING "defamatory" about my statements because there was no name calling and no false statements. Sure, it may be a detriment to his business but, he ( you, or whoever ) should have thought about that BEFORE promising work that he didn't deliver. Just the fact that "he painted" and was paid does not entitle him to make a mess in my house, don't perform the items in the proposal and expect to get away with it. However, on the other hand, since EVERYTHING written about me in this post IS false and WAS read by at least one other person, that DOES qualify as defamation.

Learn what you are claiming BEFORE you claim it !

Additionally, about my posting negative information all over the web ... YEP ! Everywhere and Every Chance I get. It's not meant to "drag him through the mud" as you say, its intent is to educate others before they choose to hire Colors N More by showing everyone who chooses to read, what his work results REALLY are. If he can't work because of it, sorry. Maybe he should then consider providing what he promises and he will ( maybe ) then get some positive reviews. Just saying.

The public is encouraged to review the posted photos and Colors N More's promise to "provide quality work at a fair price" and decide for themselves if this is the kind of "quality work" they would want in their home.
