EDISON, N.J. —  A home-improvement businessman was so upset about negative articles about him in the Newark Star-Ledger that he allegedly registered two websites in the names of the editor and publisher and linked the sites to AllFreeBlowJobs.com, a blowjob tube site.

As a result, the top dogs of New Jersey's largest newspaper are suing Alfred Demola, CEO of Aqua-Dri, who they claim purchased domain names that used their names and directed users to AllFreeBlowJobs.com out of revenge, according to a suit filed at New Jersey federal court.

Publisher Richard Vezza and Editor Kevin Whitmer said the newspaper ran an expose about Demola's waterproofing business and shady business practices.

The articles, which appeared in the business column “Bamboozled, ticked off Demola, who called the editor, demanding that it stop writing about him, according to the suit. Whitmer later got a message from Demola, threatening to publish his personal information using “.com names."

Whitmer then visited KevinWhitmer.com and discovered it redirected him to AllFreeBlowJobs.com, according to the suit. Vezza encountered the same thing when he checked RichardVezz.com

Whitmer's and Vezza's attorney demanded Demola relinquish the site, but he did not. Currently , the sites no longer contain pornography and now direct users to GoDaddy.com.

Vezza and Whitmer, who both claim they are well-known longtime journalists, are seeking for $100,000 each in damages, plus attorneys fees and an order that Demola hand over the domain names.
