    Name and Shame

    What is peoples general opinion on this ?

    And this websites opinion on naming and shaming a business or person etc.

    We all are willing to sprout good vibes and experiences we have from various people, companies and businesses, so why should we not be equally willing to express bad experience also.

    The advising of a bad experience can save people a lot of money and heartache right ?

    If you stay in a great hotel with great service, we all want to know and hear about it, like MM's lebau thread for example....many of us might go and stay there after such recommendations.

    Equally if he shit canned it no end for whatever reasons and as long as he could verify those reasons and prove them....why should he not do so ??

    Same goes for hmmmmm let me pick a proffession out of my hat....say a lawyer....here is a field of expertise that we often need a good recommendation for, but should we also not be able to hear the bad experiences so that we can then make up our own minds, weigh up the good and bad and then proceed or not ??

    Of course, no good just posting hearsay and in your endos, you would need hard proof of their incompetence and be able to backup what you state as being a negative comment on such parties.

    So, especially when we are foreigners in a foreign land and we need all the help we can get, why should we not be able to give the good, the bad and the ugly of any such enterprise and recommend it or not, for the good of other people like ourselves searching for information.

    What you all think ??

    I would like to name and shame the "Canadian pizza" company here in Bangkok.

    I had one delivered for the first time the other day and it was bloody awful, so bad that I threw half of it away.

    I ate it.

    It was so bland that the terribleness of it sort of crept up on me.

    'Naming and shaming' businesses is fair enough, after trying to address the issue with the business first. Unfortunately there are a substantial portion of people who don't have the guts to take it up with the business owner/manager first, giving them a chance to redeem themselves. Shit happens sometimes, and an otherwise good business may be damaged substantially by cowards shooting their mouths off on the internet.

    This would require a sub forum I think.

    Apart from it being illegal, ie you are not allowed to tell the truth about crap businesses in Thailand and stand a good chance of being prosecuted for telling the truth, well apart from that it sounds like a great idea for you to post it on other forums

    It all depends, if you are reporting on a bad business or business practice in Thailand to an international audience then you can be prosecuted.

    Serves you right ordering "Canadian Pizza".

    A word of caution, stay away from O'Reilly's Texmex restaurant.
