I know. I wasn't the one who mentioned "crime" first. I was just
continuing the thread. But Fred didn't pick up on the original post, he
waited to comment on mine. The burden of proof lies with the "injured
parties", and it is most definitely an uphill battle.

Not a crime, this is civil. The "injured parties" would need to show
damages and they don't need that much proof. People (defendants) would need
to post something that interfered with the plaintiff's business to what ever
measure is required by the jurisdiction where the damage occurred, but
people should still be able to post their opinions about a recruiter without
the recruiter getting "legally" hurt. On the flip-side, if a recruiter told
a potential employer of an employee, say in a reference, that this employee
barely worked or was bad in some other way, then that recruiter could face
litigation because the recruiter is in a stronger position to cause damage
to the employee.
Jim, regarding your comment,
"I worked for a recruitment agency that didn't do direct deposit, nor did
they mail or deliver paychecks. To get paid, one had to drive to their
corporate office. Had I known that ahead of time, I probably wouldn't have
done business with them."
Was that in California? I thought that employers had to pay at the place of
employment, by mail, or by direct deposit at the employee's discretion.
When was this?
