Thanks Tom. I think I've managed to calm them down now :)

I decided to take the pubs linked data because:

1) The reviews were not actually my own (I'd never visited the pub that
caused the trouble) and reading some of the other reviews I realised
that (while amusing) they could easily have been taken the wrong way. I
figured it was probably not great having my name associated with reviews
I didn't write. My site was static and unlike revyu there was no way for
people to write counter reviews. 

2) I mainly did it as an experiment to try the whole linked data thing
on an amateur level. I think things have moved on since I started it -
the site was pretty primitive.  

3) Southampton locals with burning torches and pitchforks angry their
favourite pub was given a bad review is not a pretty site :)
