It was a private site, not commercial, so I don't see how the dealers
chould have any influence over "freedom of speech."

If I was running a non-commercial site and my visitors wanted to
discuss the good/bad/ugly of the construction and the prices they
paid, I'd let them go for it, as long as they weren't defaming the
character of the manufacturer or dealer. Stating simple facts like "my
boat is only one year old and the cabin door screws fell out" is a
perfectly legit discussion. Stating that you paid $x for a particular
model of boat is also a perfectly legit discussion.

I sure wouldn't let a dealer push me around because someone complained
about the price he was charging. I believe the law is on my side, not
the manufacturer's or dealer's. Go look at the thousands of sites
specific to a particular make/model of car. Although most are
moderated, the manufacturers and dealers take it on the chin and have
no place to hide. Their only response is to build a better product
that doesn't raise so many complaints.
