There's a lot of insinuation in there, but not any direct finger pointing.

I'll allow it.

I give the apartment a solid rating, but the landlord did not kill anybody during the visit. Sorry landlord, but you only get 1 star for the lack of sociopathic murder. Step up your game already

So how does that work with liable. You aren't allowed to say someone contributed to another death without proof but can you just ask questions ala Glenn Beck?

So Spock is reponsible for Jim's death. (illegal)
I can't help but wonder if Spock is responsible for Jim's Death. (legal?)

A restauranteur friend is hilarious when she gets revved up about Yelp. As SOMEONE IN THE BUSINESS, she can't dismiss it readily enough but then gets really bent out of shape about posts that mention her specifically.

There is every possibility that Spock's behavior may have contributed towards the circumstances that led to Kirk's death.   And possibly Kevin Bacon's death too.

You make an excellent point. It would be nice if the political pundits who indirectly affect the governance of our country were held to the same standards as Yelp reviews posted on the internet. It's actually pretty farking insane that we do not. Just look at Congress to see the results of this.

Ignored a yelp review last week about a mechanic

Wish I hadn't ignored it

Screaming that he's a pedophile is still okay, though, right?

Yelp vs. BBB? Pick your poison.

Depends on how you word it.  You can ask questions, you can say you believe, or that its your opinion that he his, but outright stating it as fact isn't.

Mechanics, like dentists, should always come with a referral from someone you trust.

How much did you get screwed over for?

For example: "Dino M. Zaffina has never denied raping and murdering a ten-year-old boy"

I enjoy taunting my franco friends by asking them "What is it that this is?".

I own rental property, and while I am good friends with most of my tenants they all know there is a fine line between that. They rent, I fix is basically my job description. However, just about every landlord has some kind of slum renter, and its pretty much 1 out of 5. I've had a few crummy landlords in my time as well, I put them shady 1 out of 5 myself.

A good landlord is one that can set a time table and get things fixed in an orderly fashion, one who can meet the needs of a tenant (assuming its within a price range and time table). A tenants job is to basically upkeep the place and pay the farking rent on time. Of course in all, there are a handful of batshiat insane landlords and tenants, I've seen them and trust me its best before you rent to find out if the landlords a wack job or not, or for the tenant - get a few references.

/made that mistake already, have a woman whose taking far to much anti-psychotic meds start throwing baby powder all over an apartment, claimed I put a red and blue bunny in her apartment thats job is to harass and keep her up at night, she even called the cops on me for it.
//why rent to her? because if an apartment is empty I cannot make that money back - she seemed fine at first, but oops on my part.

I've been debating if I should give this thread two or three stars.  The Weeners is in French, which seems a little hoity-toity to me, as if the thread is trying to be more than what it is.

The images aren't that great, and the Glenn Beck discussion is so 2010.

I don't really feel like I've gotten a fair exchange for my time by clicking on this thread.  I would advise visiting other threads instead.

As someone who has known sociopathic killer landlords, I'm getting a kick...

Christ, that author used a lot of words to say so little.
