Response to Is Yelp A Bully Or Just Misunderstood?:
While I don’t own a business, I’ve been pretty frustrated from the reviewer side of things. While most of my reviews are positive, I did give one star to a restaurant where my friends and I got food poisoning. The review shows up first on the restaurant’s page when I’m logged in to my account, but is nowhere to be seen when I’m not logged in. This includes searching the “filtered” section, (which is a hassle to access, by the way.) My other reviews show up fine. It’s frustrating to know that certain reviews just disappear—it takes away from the site’s credibility. Plus, writing reviews that no one will see is a waste of time.
