Yelp

Yelp ( http://www.yelp.com/ ) and I hit it off right away. Yelp is a community of reviewers who have a common geographic region. There are yelp communities in large cities all over The United States. Yelpers write and post reviews on a large number of subjects; restaurants, shopping, and food are three of the largest categories. I came to appreciate yelp after I found a pool hall I didn’t know about in a neighborhood I had spent years in.

    Here is an example of how Yelp operates. Paid Yelpers communicate on a Yelp Topic Site ( http://www.yelp.com/topic ) .
    Below, 3 Yelpers who have never been in a certain establishment ( Razzberry Lips) plot revenge because of the bad press brought to Yelp by this establishment .
    The worst part is that these are either Paid Yelpers or your common everyday non paid Yelper who “hang out “ in the Yelp “ether” . They hide behind Fairy Tale names and identities . They premeditate , coordinate and target rage and vitriol on businesses they have never even patronized ! :

    Glad you posted this here, Linda.

    As per your words…
    “For this business owner to go on the news and cry about this
    forum because she didn’t like the negative post…..
    You have my vote for ROTD!

    If you’re wondering what ROTD means , I found these definitions on the web:
    ROTD Rage of the Dragons (game)
    ROTD Requiem of the Dead (game)
    ROTD Return of the Dragons (gaming, Warcraft III Campaign)
    ROTD Review of the Day
    ATTENTION TO ALL BUSINESS OWNERS:
    YELP IS NOT YOUR FRIEND . THEY ARE IN FACT PREYING ON YOU BY PAYING / ENCOURAGING UNEDUCATED , IMMATURE HATE FILLED “YELPERS” TO POST LIBELOUS REVIEWS ON RANDOM BUSINESSES SO THEY CAN THEN ATTEMPT TO SELL THEM BUSINESS OWNER ACCOUNTS TO DELETE THESE NEGATIVE REVIEWS.
