Website for Poor Service
I recently asked if anyone knew of a website where someone who has had a bad experience with a car or a garage could post this on the web. I got a couple of replies but nothing that would do what I wanted. I have gone through TestAchats. They took some action but nothing really satisfactory. For you lawyers out there, what would be the risks (if any) of publishing on the internet the names of garages where we considered the service to be unsatisfactory. If the posting is factually true would I risk opening myself up to a lawsuit for defamation? If I posted it as “a garage in (commune)” without using the name of the garage would there be less risk? How specific could I be? I really think such a website would be a service to many other people but I’m not exactly sure how to proceed. This would be a website where anyone could post his/her experience. There are such websites in other countries but nothing that I know of in Belgium. Ideas would be appreciated.
