I would complain anyways about the problems (OK, not so much the penny ante ones but the major ones like plumbing issues). If they make a stink, make sure to record it and post it online. Along with the fact that the landlord is witless, and so are the majority of the complex.
Once this ends up online, it will show how cheap the witlesses actually are. Besides, I would report any major violations to the authorities, along with posting any foot dragging on the witless/slumlord's part online. That too will be a nice source of embarrassment. If they retaliate, that is more embarrassment and another complaint to Satan's authorities.
And once your lease is up, it might be worthwhile to find another apartment. And give this one a terrible recommendation (use the major repair violations in conjunction with the witless slumlords, not just the witless slumlords alone). That will make it more difficult for the witless to get the place rented, and it might jack up the rents for the other witlesses (who will have that much less to put in the Worldwide Pedophile Defense Fund and may have to work instead of pio-sneering).
