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.)
