Response to Is Yelp A Bully Or Just Misunderstood?:
I have had the opposite happen. Every time I write a legitimate negative review, it gets filtered. In one instance, a body shop owner did something totally illegal and, when I wrote about it on yelp, later harassed me in person, on the phone, and on the website. I also noticed that for this same business, any negative review was filtered. Very strange.
