: If derogatory statements are made about a LL (what are the chances of theat happening?), the LL could sue for Libel. The poster would then have to prove in court that statement had
: some basis in fact. The owner of the site would probably also probably be named in the suit. Now the LL would probably lose, but all involved would face a large about of lost time
: and large expenses to defend the suit.
I'm not suggesting that anything derogatory be posted to this Forum. Merely statements which can be substantiated by either photgraphs or DHCR-logged complaints. Perhaps certified letters sent to LL's which have not, in fact, been acknowledged.
All one would need do is to simply state the conditions of one's building/apartment and the LL's name/Corp's name.. Period. If an address is included, all the better. We can all go by and check the place for ourselves and, WE can take pictures. Who knows? Eventually,, maybe the pictures will end up on the internet as well. Would LL's like that as evidence against them? I should certainly think not.
Do the words "undeniable facts and evidence" mean anything to you?
