What in the world ever happened to free speech?

Remember the New York hotel that fined guests $500 for leaving negative reviews online? It's not an isolated case.

Another hotel just issued a penalty to a couple after they published bad feedback. The Broadway Hotel, located in Blackpool, England, fined a couple £100 ($150) for leaving a poor review. Take a look at the review for yourself.

It doesn't look like the stay was worth it to me. And that's an insult to the Muppets. What in the world is going on here?

It seems that the Broadway Hotel has a policy that warns customers when they book a stay. "Despite the fact that repeat customers and couples love our hotel, your friends and family may not," it says. "For every bad review left on any website, the group organiser will be charged a maximum £100 per review."

Sound familiar? But wait, there's more.
