Michigan-based venture capital firm EDF Ventures issued TheFunded.com a subpoena, asking the VC-ratings site to ID a commenter who wrote that EDF is "to be avoided unless you are desperate.” VentureBeat has a copy of the subpoena. TheFunded CEO Adeo Ressi told entrpreneurs their bitchiest secrets are safe with him. Said Ressi: "TheFunded does not store IP addresses, email addresses, or any other personal information associated with a Member account in any database or any file system operated by the company." Funny, before this, we'd never even heard of EDF Ventures. Now they've established what the PR people call messaging: EDF is an obscure VC firm known mostly for being touchy and litigious. To be avoided unless you are desperate.
