Possible New Forum Topic. Mods what do you think?

Hi Everybody,

If you have been on the professional side of landscaping for a while, i am sure i am not the only one who has gotten ripped off by unscrupulous Property Management Co's and or Condominium Associations. They all have their own associations and networks to tell each other about bad contractors. Well i was thinking that maybe we should have a forum where we could tell our stories about how we got ripped off or lied too by these people.

Now i do not know if that would set anyone up for a libel suit or not , as i am not a lawyer. Just a landscaper who would like to warn or be warned about a potential bad business mistake.

Does any one have any thoughts? Good or bad Lets here 'em

Big Al

Big Al,

I think this has been discussed before and I even think there is a site like this called Client Check or something like that. As far as publicly condemning these companies, it's a risk simply because one side of the story may not fit the other side of the story. I don't know...I guess what does everyone else think?

I agree with Sean regarding the "Public Condemnation" of companies, to make it fair, I would think would have to offer rebuttal to the owners, which takes time for the moderators and administrators, not to mention just to eat up bandwidth.

As an alternative, If you read in a post about another member regarding a problem you had with a particular property, you could email privately another member regarding a certain properly that you have had trouble with etc. Most of the time problems arise out of LACK OF COMMUNICATION!

Just my .02 worth.
