    The internet must be seen by many companies as gold mine & a cheap way to make quick money. The comments posted on those forums were only stories of the bad service they got with that online site ( I won't give the name, you can imagine why... ).

    Let's say today I order from a site like Crucial & if I get bad service it would actually be illegal for me to talk about it here, risking to get the forums shutdown & all ?

    I'm not sure about French law, but in the USA, the only situation to fear is Libel or Slander. Where you actually call or liken a person or company to criminals or criminal behavior(such as print or electronic media.)
    That's why it's best to say, "Ungentlemanly," which really can't be argued in Court of Law. It's appears French law is similar.
