Online Billiards Company Responds to Removal of Their Mascot from MySpace

At approximately 1:22PM MST on August 18 2008, PoolDawg.com, a leading online retailer of billiards, poker and dart equipment, logged in to the MySpace account for their mascot Frank and found that their account no longer existed. For reasons unbeknownst to PoolDawg, MySpace made the decision to delete Frank's MySpace account, wiping out two years of good will and thousands of friend connections in the process.

"We are extremely disappointed with the decision made by MySpace and Fox Interactive to delete our account," said Mike Feiman, PoolDawg's Director of Marketing. "MySpace was a great way for us to keep in touch with our pool playing friends and customers, so the loss of Frank's MySpace page is not an insignificant loss". Despite several attempts to contact MySpace regarding this removal, PoolDawg was unable to get any answers beyond an automated message. Prior to the account deletion, PoolDawg connected with over 1,600 amateur and pro pool players.

As a result of this, PoolDawg is building a new site for Frank. The site, located at FranksDawgHouse.com will include Frank's famous blog, pictures of Frank hanging out with Debbie Schjodt and others from the WPBA and much more. PoolDawg will be opening this site to the public immediately, allowing everyone to participate in the building of Frank's new house. To check it out and to read about Frank's continuing adventures on the road with Debbie and the WPBA, just go to http://www.franksdawghouse.com.
