The Taiwanese woman, who has only been named as Mrs Liu, enraged the owner of the Sichuan Flavour Beef Noodle Restaurant in the central city of Taichung after posting a negative review on the internet.
Mrs Liu, who has a wide-ranging but relatively little-read blog covering food and interior design, visited the restaurant in 2008.
She complained that the food was "too salty", that there were cockroaches, and that the owner was a "bully", according to the Taipei Times.

Mrs Liu was sentenced to 30 days in jail, a further two years of probation, and ordered to pay 4,300 in compensation to the restaurant for the damage she had caused. She was also told to apologise and refused the right to appeal.

The owner of the restaurant, named as Mr Yang, said he hoped the case would teach her a lesson. Huang Cheng-lee, a lawyer in Taichung, said restaurant reviewers should remember to be "truthful, objective and fair".

That'll teach her to call him a bully. :lol:
