Avvo Didn’t Take Too Kindly to Goat Lawyer

This morning I committed Avvocide. That is, I edited my Avvo profile in such a way that it caught the attention of an Avvo community guideline guy. Nevertheless, at least for a short period of time people searching for a Goat Lawyer could find one. Me. I even got a rousing endorsement from a fellow lawyer.

Alas, my profile was stripped bare within a few hours and I’ve been reduced again to normality, at least by Avvo standards. Surprisingly, though, as the Goat Lawyer I got boosted to a 9.2 rating. I’m now an 8.1, and probably dropping fast. Plus, I seem to have been stripped of certain privileges that go with being a non-goat lawyer.

If you missed Goat Lawyer, here’s what it looked like for a short period of time this morning.
