  • Why do you care what other people think of you and yours? If you are good, decent, law abiding people-let 'em think what they want. Sounds like there probably isn't much you could do to get your name clean again.

  • I'm not burdened with worrying about what people think of me. You can always sue for slander...if you can prove it. But just be the person you are and don't worry about what others think It has NO BEARING on your life. The court of public opinion has NO jursidiction.

  • Who cares. If what she is spreading around isn't true don't worry about it. She's the one with a problem.

  • Give it time. Seriously, just be you and be kind and nice and rise above it. In time everyone will see that you're not what that other person said. It won't even take that long. People reaaaaaaaaaaally don't care that much about other people's crap, ya know? If you try to address it, you'll just look kinda crazy.

  • I can't imagine my neighbors being united over anything.

    Invite everyone over for coffee and dessert; bake some fantastic cookies.

  • If you're just renting consider moving out early. Or better yet leave the neighbors alone and just live your life w/o having any interactions with them. You can't convince people of anything and they're free to think whatever they want. I think what messes a lot of people up is thinking that people have to like them, or the need to make them see the truth. People will be people and not everyone will want to like you right or wrong, good reason or not. Let them keep speculating about you and act as if your not bothered by it.
