@Valuemanifesto have now started deleting comments and blocking users from their social media accounts who may point out the similarities between the two works.
It's a shame they could not respond to the comments instead of hiding behind lawyers.
I've uploaded all the correspondence here, so you can use this as an example of what happens. Please feel free to ask any questions in the comments.
