If you owned a business would you consider suing someone for a bad review placed on the internet?

If it’s not true and purely an attempt to sabotage my business, yes.

No. I would just reply to said comment and let people make up their own minds.

If it were untrue - yes.
Words have consequences.
Some people haven’t ever learned that no matter how old they get.

No, if I got a bad review I’d consider doing my business better. In any case it wouldn’t even occur to me to file a frivolous lawsuit - owning a business would make me an entrepreneur, not an idiot.

Only if it implies that my business was not in line with the values I put on it. Ie that we are racist, sexist, etc.

"Ever"? I might, if it's completely slanderous and false and hurting business.

Only if it was completely made up.

Not at all, even bad publicity is better than none.
