Sorry for the less than stellar pics but being disabled it's difficult for me to get pics.

For some background: This is a pic from my former roommates shower. When I moved in with my first roommate before he left he said there was some strange stuff that he thought looked like mold due to a pipe from our upstairs neighbors leaking, and we called for our apartments maintenance and they said it wasn't, that it was just due to the kernals (sp?) on the ceiling. He moved out shortly thereafter and I got a new roommate. He saw it and called maintenance and they said the same thing, that it looks like mold from upstairs neighbor pipe leaking but they again shrugged it off as no big issue. Recently he moved out and while cleaning up hoping to find a new roommate soon, a friend that was helping me said the same thing that it looks like mold, it's all black.

Again, sorry for the bad pictures, I'll try to get better ones soon:
