    Yelp is nothing more than an extortion scam.

    I own a business and let me tell you what happens when they call you and offer their "advertising" to you for a measly 300 bucks a month (with a 6 month or longer contract).

    when you say NO, they say, SCREW YOU and filter all of your positive comments and leave any negative ones you have.

    I wrote to them to complain and about this and the very last positive comment i had went bye bye within an had been on my yelp site for over a year and now suddendly their "filter" system decided it was "unreliable" and had to be filtered.

    FK Yelp.

    oh and they also use "Elite Yelpers" to promote BS on their site and while they do not pay them they give them tons of free crap to say how wonderful yelp is.

    they are basically professional writers that they hire to promote them and companies that pay their BS cost.

    oh and my fav, the lady I spoke wit

    jamie76, that`s not much different than the Better Business Bureau. You basically buy membership in "being a good company" ... needless to say a lot of good businesses "aren`t smiled upon by the BBB" and a lot of bad ones are.

    So Yelp sucks because it had enabled this restaurant to demonstrate the problems with accepting a small sampling of anecdotal evidence as fact? That`s weird.

    Brilliant strategy. By pointing out the one bad review, he`ll get 20 customers who like the place to go out of their way and post good reviews.
