[Misc.] No negative apartment ratings?

Techdirt pointed out an article about how an apartment complex owners are trying to sue people who post negative reviews of their apartments. The web site is Apartment Ratings, which I have visited when I was looking for apartments. Certainly some stories sounded bogus, but many of them seemed legitimate, especially when I compared them to my own or friends' experiences on those exact apartment complex. Yes, you can sue when the stories are false, unfortunately I believe that most of them are true.

By the way, you can use Bug Me Not to gain access to the very original article in Chicago Tribune.
