I want to start a "hate" site dedicated to my crappy dealings with a major corporation. What do I need to be wary of?

I've had it! _______ (insert company name here) is ripping me off and providing me NO service even though I've spent $25,000 YTD with them. Their service is a joke. The account rep is a moron. I firmly believe they are trained to pass the buck so you'll give up and go away.
I want to start a "hate" site about my experiences (i.e. ______sucks.com, or equivelant). I am sure the company would be eager to sue me (a Google search shows that they don't mind filing frivilous suits). What kinds of things would be considered out of bounds if I want to create the site and want to stay on firm legal ground?
Amongst the things I'd consider posting: transcripts of conversations, recorded phone calls, images of my bills, the names of people I'm dealing with at the company, etc.
I'm doing this with the purest of intentions - simply as an outlet for my immense frustration. But is there any chance they would pay me to shut up or take it down?
