Not so - if I spraypaint "your service sucks" on a restaurant's 
window, it is still graffiti, no matter how truthful, accurate, or 
relevant the comment may be.

(FWIW, I don't object to making a ratings site and providing a link, 
although  I think that using a solid off-the-shelf discussion system 
would be better than a roll-your-own.  Reddit, for example, is 
written in Python, and has some reasonable protections against 
trolling and spamming.)
