Defamatory Comments

Hi Marty,
I am glad you got good work from Rocio. Like I said before I am just relating these incidences for the benfit of public discourse. That’s the point of this forum, isn’t it? And, no I don’t work for a competing dentist.
To return to your restaurant metaphor, i am not commenting on how good the filet mignon is without ever having tasted it myself. I am instead letting others know, hey some people got food poisoning at this restaurant, so beware. Do i myself need to have been sickened in order to warn others? I don’t believe so.
I am not interested in deterring others from staying with rocio if they like her work. I just thought it was responsible to enter these accounts, along with all the others, into the public record. Particularly because my friends went to her because of what they read here. Just trying to keep it real.

Far from "keeping it real," you've now muddied the waters further. If your friends read positive reports here about a service that led them to use that service that you now say they disliked, then it should be those people who post their experience here, not an anonymous third party just trying to be helpful while potentially causing harm to someone's livelihood. What you're doing just seems plain mean and reckless to me.

The purpose of this Message Board is most certainly NOT to anonymously defame local people or businesses. Do you not agree that that is essentially what you are doing?

I've seen incidents of defamation posted here and on other forums with the intent of extorting the business or person being defamed, so this isn't something I just made up to protect a local business. I'm pretty sure you wouldn't want to be mistaken for an extortionist, right?
