I just Googled the name of a company that I occasionally do business with, just as a quick way to get their mailing address and phone number, and I found that there were a whole slew of sites that say that the princial of that company sucks. While I personally have not visited any, "...sucks.com" websites in years, about a decade ago, I did learn of them, so their existence is not news to me, but the "sucks" sites I found back then all attacked high profile people. This businessman is not a big leaguer. Only one of the attackers furnished his own name and made specific charges. All of the rest of the posts on various sites were anonymous, short, and unspecific, saying things like, "Yeah, he's scum" and, "A real sleazeball if ever there was one" and, "I don't see how he stays in business." Such insults have no credibility with me for a number of reasons, but I'd like to know if people who are being attacked this way have been successful in pursuing legal recourse against the parties that are assailing and maligning them.
