The danger here is that someone may accuse a dealer of performing poorly and not be entirely accurate. This has legal implications, and also there's the possibility that posts may be written by competitors. This is why forums try and avoid this, and get round the problem by not actually naming a dealer (but allowing the dealer name to be disclosed by PM if need be). Positive posts are of course fine! It is easy to forget that when you write on a forum, you are in effect publishing (just like say a newspaper) and there are laws to ensure that businesses are not hurt by untrue statements.
