Since I'm not the police, or council, or judge, or jury, or anyone else who has the power to really do something about bad landlords in our town, my words will do nothing to change the situation, except make it worse for tenants. It's very easy for anyone fairly secure and safe in their own homes to say "name names." They're not the ones who might end up homeless. So that strategy won't work. Informing the public might seem like the whole point of this Diary, but not if it's going to make the problem worse instead of better.
Still, it doesn't mean I'll give up on the topic of slumlords, or stop talking about it. I'll just have to approach it differently from now on. So stay tuned.
